There will be something for everyone on your holiday shopping list this November from Criterion. For the action admirer, there is quite the gift: “Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman,” a lavish, gorgeously illustrated collector’s set featuring the iconic Japanese blade master in twenty-five exhilarating adventures. For lovers of classic comedy, there will be an extras-laden edition of Charlie Chaplin’s monumental “City Lights,” among the most beloved films of all time. Fans of fresh contemporary indie cinema can take a spin with Noah Baumbach’s giddy “Frances Ha,” one of the most acclaimed films of this year, straight from its smash theatrical run. And as if that weren’t enough, Criterion is also reissuing in a newly restored edition Yasujiro Ozu’s magnificent drama “Tokyo Story” (recently named the greatest film ever made in a Sight & Sound magazine directors’ poll).
