Robert Altman had a dream… He didn’t fully understand it so he turned it into a film… It was about three women…
Summary Plot: In an isolated town in the Californian desert, against the backdrop of a geriatric spa-clinic, three women meet: the confident, delusional Milly; the timid, nosy Pinky; the pregnant artist Willie, wife of an ex-cowboy stuntman and owner of the local hangout. Their lives form a strange bond after a bizarre and dramatic sequence of events.
A dreamlike, photogenic, multilayered, Persona-like film where the characters clash, then meld into each other. So dreamlike, that there were scenes when I was not entirely sure whether the characters were ‘meaning‘ it or ‘faking‘ it. Great (awarded) performances and improvisation as opposed to reading from a script.
As many before me, I discovered the great mural art of Bodhi Wind. I looked him up; not a lot can be found about this artist who, sadly, passed away far too early, but I did come across Ruth’s enlightening article and links: http://rutheh.com/2013/04/29/the-extraordinary-art-of-bodhi-wind/.
