Samurai: Criterion Collection

Samurai: Criterion Collection

Although I don't own this collection set, I can say i've seen all of the movies. In fact I own many of these films on DVD. Kurosawa's films are a favorite among samurai movie watchers, but I often prefer Masaki Kobayashi's darker themes. But that's just me. One suggestion for newcomers to Japanese Samurai cinema; you should check your local library for some of these titles. I worked at a library and they carried most of the same titles. Also I have seen movies I didn't like, even when I expected to like them.

However, it might be the most interesting/ ridiculous. Certainly worth checking out and definitely worth owning the criterion collection if you're an Anderson fan.

  • The original Insomnia presents a Story with much more moral shades of gray compared to the already foggy Nolan Remake. Watch it for the interesting character dynamics , subtle acting, and non-hollywood ending.

It's Dazed and Confused and it's easily one of the funnier films of the 90s. Immediately after its release, it was an instant cult favorite and leaves me (and others alike) religiously quoting the film. This Criterion release has a ridiculous amount of extras, including a 50-minute documentary about the making of the film, commentary, trailers, deleted scenes and lots more.

In my opinion, the Criterion release is entirely too late. Better late than never, I guess. Just like other cc releases, it's got lots of extras. What's the kicker though? It's got the original black and white short shot in 1992.

Even though Kevin Smith went on to make wider and much more successful films, I've always counted this as the end of his career. It closed out the Jersey Trilogy and, in my book, marked then end of him making great film. That to say, this is an awesome flick that you should definitely check out.

If you're at all interested in melodrama, then you will this 1955 classic. Me personally, I'm not. However, I fundamentally believe that everyone should see this film because of it's undeniable impact. The Criterion Collection has too many features to lists, including original theatrical trailers, enhanced widescreen, vintage lobby cards and much more.

  • Wes Anderson is a brilliant man. This is a brilliant movie. Everyone should see this at least 3 times. It will make you happy. Or at least it should.

One of my favourite samurai films, it deals with, and challenges, the myth of honour among samurai. Masaki Kobayashi, who also directed the amazing film of a similar motif, Samurai Rebellion, gives us some amazing scenes in this film, using camera angles to convey the twists and turns in the story into a visual form. And it has one of the best fight scenes in Japanese cinema. The end.

The 400 Blows by François Truffaut was truly a film that opened my eyes to French New Wave and foreign films in general. I had happened upon it while flipping channels years back and it was on television, possibly on Turner Classic Movies, late at night. The film is amazing, truly a bright star amid the constellation of films. Although set in France, the character Antoine is easy to relate to in his rebelliousness and disinterest in school. He isn't a bad kid, per se, but perhaps all too human, with the faults and foibles that come with being one. The same could be said for many of the film's characters, and in showing the human struggles of ordinary people, Truffaut helped spawn a film movement we continue to talk about today.
