This just recently posted on Criterion's website: Criterion Honors the Centennial of Ozu's Birth In honor of the 100-year anniversary of the birth of renowned Japanese filmmaker Yasujiro Ozu (b: December 12, 1903; d: December 12, 1963), Criterion has acquired several of his most highly-regarded films. Among the Ozu films slated for DVD release in 2003 and 2004 are such classics as Floating Weeds, Early Summer, and Tokyo Story. Look for the first of Criterion's upcoming Ozu titles in the fall of 2003. Look also for an Ozu theatrical retrospective, travelling the world in 2003 and appearing as part of the 2003 New York Film Festival (Oct. 5 - Nov. 6). This is amazing news, as I knew Floating Weeds was in the works, but had absolutely no idea they could get their hands on Tokyo Story. Man this is shaping up to be an incredible year for Criterion with films coming from Godard, Truffaut, Gilliam, Fellini, and Ozu. With expected as of now unannounced titles from Kurosawa, Bergman, and Renoir also maybe for release in 2003!!
