Every December, Criterion usually ends of the new year quietly, with not much of in the way of new releases. But they are making sure you'll be able to buy the cinephile in your life the best Christmas presents(s) ever, as their November lineup is, to put it politely, fucking epic.

It really doesn't get more irreverent and outlandish than the cult films of Robert Downey Sr. and let's face it, every cinephile worth his salt loves an excuse to talk about the underground filmmaker's outré classic "Putney Swope."

Well, perhaps not, but there's a few very pleasant surprises in the latest batch of announcement.
