Back in February, Hulu unveiled the official Criterion Collection channel on their website, providing audiences in the United States with a free (ad supported) venue to watch their films. While they started out by showing several Zatoichi The Blind Swordsman films, they have finally added a film that has a Criterion Spine Number, Roman Polanski’s first film, Knife in the Water.
Not only have they added this Polanski film, but they have gone and added several more films in the Zatoichi series, with the only films remaining those that are held by AnimEigo (the films produced in the 1970’s).
I’ve added links below for the various Zatoichi films, but you can find the Criterion Channel here. You can also visit our previous post announcement, where I went and listed several films that are contained within the Criterion Collection, that are available on Hulu, but not in the official channel.
