American Graffiti

 (1973)

American Graffiti Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

A summer night in 1962 with the radio as a backdrop becomes the focal point in the lives of four small town California teenagers as they face decisions, both immediate and long term, about the directions of their lives. Steve, wants to break up with Laurie, his devoted high school sweetheart and pursue new experiences away from home. Curt, is hesitant about going away to school and leaving the comfortable, familiar surroundings of family and friends. John, tries to maintain his "too cool for school" image as a hip guy, but can't seem to shake a nagging awareness that life is somehow passing him by. Finally, there's Terry, the nerdy wannabe trying to fit in but who still manages to screw up.. By the next morning, their lives will be changed, some only temporarily and some for a lifetime.

American Graffiti Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Oh edge enhancement and noise reduction, why do you vex me so? Universal's 1080p/VC-1 transfer would earn resounding praise from me if it weren't for the unsightly, ever-present halos, ringing and smearing that haunt its high definition presentation. Granted, it isn't the worst I've had to endure, not by any stretch of the imagination. But it is apparent and distracting, enough to single-handedly knock my score down quite a bit. I can deal with the darkness and filmic softness that comes to bear on the image; both trace back to Jan D'Alquen and Ron Eveslage's photography and the now-thirty-eight-year-old source. I can even deal with the film's occasionally muted black levels, which also lead back to the source. Lucas's early '60s palette is brimming with bold period colors, coming-of-age primaries, largely lifelike skintones (barring some muddiness) and stable contrast. But detail doesn't reveal as much as it should, even when delineation flounders and the dark of night presses in. Closeups look good, but not outstanding. Textures abound, but aren't refined. Grain permeates the picture, but cloaks ever-present noise reduction. Thankfully, artifacting, aliasing, banding, smearing and other such nonsense is nowhere to be found -- at least none that proves to be significant -- and overzealous DNR and EE are the sole stumbling blocks to be hurdled. Suffice it to say, American Graffiti has never looked better than it does here, but I strongly suspect it could look much better.


American Graffiti Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

It would be a mistake to dismiss Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix. At least outright. It may "only" be a two-channel track, but it's a very authentic two-channel track. And while it may seem strange to those who've never watched American Graffiti or experienced its then-groundbreaking sound design, the various background songs sound exactly as Lucas intended. Yes, a meticulously remixed 5.1 surround track could potentially make the director's desired effect that much more immersive, and yes, some additional cleanup work could possibly eliminate some glaring inconsistencies. But to do either would risk compromising the one thing that makes American Graffiti such an interesting cinematic milestone: its ahead-of-its-time, shot-from-the-hip, American Zoetrope aesthetic. Even as is, dialogue is direct and intelligible, effects are distinct (albeit thin) and the lack of LFE oomph and rear speaker support is really the only prevailing disappointment. The quality of the original elements limit the end results, sure. But I doubt those who treasure American Graffiti will expect, or even demand, much more. I, for one, was pleased. Not delighted, mind you, but pleased.
