A Band Called Death Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Although several different camera operators photographed A Band Called Death (including the Hackneys with handheld cameras), director Covino is the film's credited cinematographer. Like many documentaries, ABCD was assembled from diverse sources, including old VHS tapes, photographs scanned and "separated" so that individual figures could be emphasized, archival footage and, of course, contemporary interviews shot digitally. The result, edited together and presented by Drafthouse Films on a 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray, is a pleasure to watch, because the directors have used all the available tools to get the viewer close to their subjects, and the Blu-ray reproduces every detail. The contemporary footage is smooth, sharp and detailed, so that every flicker of expression (and every tear) registers, as the Hackneys relive and remember. Older material has been processed with care to extract all available resolution from these sources. This is an exemplary treatment of a documentary presentation and a fine example of why such films deserve to be seen on Blu-ray.


A Band Called Death Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

A Band Called Death has an elegantly mixed (by Skywalker Sound) lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 track with original scoring by Tim Boland and Sam Retzer (Stomp the Yard), but documentaries are rarely sonic showcases. There are only a few short scenes of live performance, since the film's focus is almost entirely on reconstructing events long past and on recent developments that led to the band's rediscovery. The most important elements of the soundtrack are the voices of the various interview subjects, primarily the Hackney family, and these are reproduced with crystal clarity in every nuance of expression. On the family's commentary track, they joke that Earl Hackney, the brother who was not a member of the band, has become the surprise star of the film, because viewers find his delivery so entertaining.
