Antichrist

 (2009)

Antichrist Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A couple is grieving the death of their son, who fell from a window. The mother, an academic who studies the hatred and murder of women throughout history, is at first admitted to psychiatric hospital after the incident, but her husband, a headstrong therapist, insists on going with her to their remote forest cabin, Eden, and treating her himself. They immerse themselves in nature and act out their deep pain in a series of strange, dangerous, and brutal rituals.

For more about Antichrist and the Antichrist Blu-ray release, see Antichrist Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Willem Dafoe, Charlotte Gainsbourg
Director: Lars von Trier

Antichrist Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Lars von Trier's Antichrist arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The film was shot in 4K resolution with the RED One Digital Camera; in addition, the Phantom HD camera was used for the high-speed sequences. The entire production was completed in a fully digital workflow. Postproduction and color timing were done using Assimilate's SCRATCH and Nucoda's Film Master systems. The final color-corrected DPX files were output to Rec. 709 high-definition color space for Blu-ray and DVD release.

Digital color timing: Stefan Ciupek, Dirk Meier/Nordic Film Lab, Copenhagen.
Supervised by: Anthony Dod Mantle; Peter Hjorth/Nordic Film Lab, Copenhagen."

This is a very strong high-definition transfer. As far as I could tell, it is also practically identical to the one French distributors M6 used for their Blu-ray release of Antichrist. Clarity, contrast, and detail are often manipulated to enhance the transitions between the two worlds He and She share. Additionally, during a few of the darker scenes there is some inherited softness. The prominent colors, such as the variety of greens and grays for instance, are once again remarkably cool, at times even cold. The reds, however, appear slightly richer here in comparison to the M6 release. Lastly, this high-definition transfer is encoded in 1080p, as opposed to the one M6 used, which is encoded in 1080/50i. For the record, while viewing Antichrist I did not detect any purely technical anomalies to report in this review. (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).


Antichrist Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. 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 inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The 5.1 surround soundtrack is identical to the theatrical mix. It was remastered at 24-bit from the original digital audio master files using Pro Tools HD.

Indeed, the English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is solid. Surround activity is rather limited, but the audio does convey wonderful depth and fluidity. Additionally, Handel's beautiful music enhances the sense of paranoia exceptionally well. Lastly, I did not detect any purely technical anomalies with the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track to report in this review.
