3 Women Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.36:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Robert Altman's 3 Women arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears on the leaflet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"This high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from a 35mm interpositive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine colorist: Andrew Drapkin/HTV, Hollywood."

Generally speaking, detail is very good. I was particularly impressed with the desert footage, the majority of which looks quite shaky on Criterion's SDVD release of 3 Women. Contrast and clarity levels have also been stabilized. However, mild noise has a tendency to creep in not only when light is restricted, but also during selected daylight scenes (see screencapture #5). This is not to say that it affects dramatically the integrity of the presentation, but occasionally its presence is easily felt. Edge-enhancement is not an issue of concern, but traces of mild sharpening can be spotted here and there. Additionally, a layer of light grain is present throughout the entire film, but the mild noise mentioned above is often mixed with it. There are absolutely no stability issues to report in this review. I also did not see any large damage marks, cuts, warps, or stains. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


3 Women Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The following text appears on the leaflet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-but from the original 35mm magnetic track. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated workstation."

As far as I am concerned, the English LPCM 1.0 track is perfect. The numerous bassoon and clarinet solos, for instance, are well rounded and rich, never even remotely distorted, while the gunshots in the desert sound remarkably crisp. There are no balance issues. The dialog is also stable, clean, and exceptionally easy to follow. For the record, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or excessive hiss to report in this review.
