Criterion Kaiju

I’ve been watching the Criterion Showa series Toho films now streaming on FilmStruck. Eventually we’ll see them on DVD and Blu-ray. In all, there are 14 films. Only “Ebirah” and “Hedorah” are missing from the original Showa Godzillas. This is the first time I had seen the bizarre Son of Godzilla in the original Japanese anamorphic print. The ending of that film is surreal. The prints look superb. There are few supplements in the streamed versions.
