ScreenAnarchy's Best of 2013 - Best Blu-ray Release
Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman - Criterion
Pierce Conran - Contributing writer
Now, to be fair, I haven't received my copy yet (it's in the mail), but you have to love Criterion for putting out the ENTIRE Zatoichi collection on Blu-ray. I love chambara films and have seen many of the Zatoichi films, which rank up there with the Baby Cart and Sleepy Eyes of Death series. The Blind Swordsman will be a welcome companion during the cold winter months.

What can you say about a boxset like Criterion's Zatoichi collection of all 25 (!) movies? It's the stuff of dreams, packaging and all!
