"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

one-eyed-jacks-criterionGet ready to settle in this November with Criterion's exciting lineup of releases. Paul Thomas Anderson makes his long-awaited debut in the collection with a director-approved edition of his delightfully eccentric and endearing Punch-Drunk Love, the Cannes-award-winning romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler in his first, and extraordinary, dramatic role. Speaking of firsts, Marlon Brando's singular directorial effort, One-Eyed Jacks, his unique take on the western and the Billy the Kid legend in which he also gives a memorably tender performance, arrives in a marvelous 4K restoration supervised by Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg. Then prepare yourself
for all six 1970s manga-based Lone Wolf and Cub films, action-packed and overflowing with blood and endlessly creative carnage, available in a box set featuring new 2K restorations of the films. All this plus Akira Kurosawa's Dreams, an enchanting late film by the master director in which he brings to life a series of his own nocturnal visions, and Noah Baumbach's bitterly comic, Oscar-nominated The Squid and the Whale, a coming-of-age drama set in 1980s Park Slope, Brooklyn, and featuring stellar performances by Jeff Daniels, Laura Linney, Owen Kline, and Jesse Eisenberg.
