Published Aug 16, 2016Bringing us one step closer to the fake Criterions of our dreams, the real-life Criterion Collection have just unveiled plans to introduce an Adam Sandler film as part of their highly respected catalogue. Rather than take a risk by delivering a home release of transgressive comedies like Jack and Jill, That's My Boy or his extremely popular Netflix movies, however, the lauded organization is going with Sandler's most critically acclaimed work.
No, we're not talking about The Cobbler. We're talking about Adam Sandler's 2002 indie flick Punch-Drunk Love. The film was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and co-starred Emily Watson and Philip Seymour Hoffman, and is easily the most well-made flick in Sandler's oeuvre (sorry, Little Nicky).
The Criterion edition of Punch-Drunk Love will include a 4K digital transfer of the film, a 12-minute short called Blossoms & Blood, a new interview with composer Jon Brion, behind-the-scenes footage of the film's soundtrack and much, much more.

Other November additions to the Criterion Collection include Noah Baumbach's The Squid and the Whale, Kenji Misumi's Lone Wolf and Cub, Akira Kurosawa's Dreams and Marlon Brando's One-Eyed Jacks.
