In December, Criterion will release Martin Scorsese’s “World Cinema Project,” a box set collecting six amazing, rarely seen films from around the world in recent major digital restorations. “Each and every title is precious to me,” says Scorsese of these films, which hail from Mexico, Senegal, South Korea, and elsewhere. Next up is the ultimate freewheeling classic of 1970s American cinema, Robert Altman’s “Nashville,” in a packed special edition with a new documentary featuring interviews with many members of the film’s brilliant ensemble cast. That’s followed by Italian provocateur Elio Petri’s chilling and surreal thriller “Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion,” which won an Oscar for best foreign-language film. All this plus a new Blu-ray of the quirky documentary classic “Grey Gardens,” which also features the filmmakers’ 2006 follow-up “The Beales of Grey Gardens,” featuring footage not seen in the original.
