Images

Why I love Images (and you should too):
1. Robert Altman directed it.
2. Susannah York wrote the screenplay and stars in the film.
3. Susannah York plays a children's book author who is writing a book about unicorns. 
4. Susannah York actually wrote a book about unicorns in real life.
5. It's one of those movies where you can't tell if the protagonist is haunted or schizophrenic. 
6. The interiors are incredible.
7. It's very similar to 3 Women and Don't Look Now.
8. The John Williams score is freaky, jarring, and unforgettable. 
9. Gorgeous landscapes.
10. Heavily inspired by Persona
11. The color palette so distinctive and perfect.  
12. There are a couple of really sick glass mobiles that are visible throughout the film.  
14. Just look at the wallpaper in her bedroom!
15.  Susannah York's semi-ackward late seventies bourgeois bohemian wardrobe really hits the spot.  
16. The ending is perfect.
