A Beautiful Mind

 (2001)

A Beautiful Mind Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

From the heights of notoriety to the depths of depravity, John Forbes Nash, Jr. experiences it all. A mathematical genius, he made an astonishing discovery early in his career and stood on the brink of international acclaim. But the handsome and arrogant Nash soon found himself on a painful and harrowing journey of self-discovery once he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. After many years of struggle, he eventually triumphed over this tragedy, and finally, late in life, received the Nobel Prize.

For more about A Beautiful Mind and the A Beautiful Mind Blu-ray release, see A Beautiful Mind Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

A Beautiful Mind Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Though far from perfect, Universal's 1080p/VC-1 encoded transfer does a decent job distinguishing itself from the studio's lesser catalog titles. Roger Deakins's cinematography is as technically striking as it is artistically dazzling, once again making Deakins the film's greatest asset. Gorgeous midsummer tones give way to reclusive wintry hues as Nash's mental state deteriorates, and color accuracy, skintone saturation, black depth and contrast leveling remains suitably beautiful throughout. Detail isn't crisp or consistent -- fine textures are notably resolved in some scenes, somewhat soft in others -- but, for the most part, the perceived discrepancies I encountered trace back to Deakins's photography, Howard's aesthetics and the filmmakers' artistic intentions. In fact, many a closeup and midrange shot looks quite good, delineation is impressive and there isn't any significant artifacting, banding, crush or print damage to report. (No, a few fleeting nicks and specks aren't what I'd consider significant.)

Unfortunately, a fair amount of obvious edge enhancement spoils what might have otherwise been a more faithful catalog presentation. Object definition is satisfying, sure -- commendable even -- but noticeable, at-times garish edge halos haunt the film from beginning to end. Though far from the worst EE I've seen, it's intrusive enough to distract discerning videophiles and filmfans with larger displays. It isn't an insufferable issue at all, it just knocks the Blu-ray edition of A Beautiful Mind down a full notch or two.


A Beautiful Mind Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is more proficient than its video transfer and the results are reasonably immersive. Dialogue is warm, grounded and neatly prioritized in the mix, and voices are never overwhelmed by Nash's chaotic delusions, heavier stretches of the film's sound design or James Horner's score. LFE output isn't earth-shattering, but it isn't listless either, weighing in with measured heft and subtle presence. Rear speaker activity is somewhat reserved as well, albeit refreshingly so. Elegant ambience, convincing acoustics and delicate directionality create a subdued but enveloping soundfield; one perfectly suited to a drama like A Beautiful Mind. Still, several sequences leave their mark -- the years Nash spends working at the Pentagon are anything but peaceful -- and Horner's stirring score fills the stage even when the mathematician withdraws into the quiet confines of his mind. All in all, fans of the film will be most pleased.
