Barfly

 (1987)

Barfly Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Henry Chinaski never cared for the American dream, the thought of needing to become 'something' and fit into the system disgusts him. He believes that life is free and yours to live like you see fit, and if that in some cases involves copious amounts of whiskey then so be it. Henry spends his days drinking and listening to the radio, and he spends his nights drinking and fighting against Eddy who he thinks personifies shallowness and shameless self promoting. Sometimes in the middle of this he finds the time to jot down a few lines of poetry or a short story. After fighting Eddy and winning for a change Henry is thrown out of his regular bar where Eddy is a bartender.

For more about Barfly and the Barfly Blu-ray release, see Barfly Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Faye Dunaway, Mickey Rourke, Alice Krige, Jack Nance, J.C. Quinn, Frank Stallone

Barfly Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Barbet Schroeder's Barfly arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of German distributors Koch Media.

The Blu-ray release represents a major upgrade in quality over the out of print R1 DVD release Warner Brothers issued in 2002. Detail is very pleasing, clarity improved, especially during the bar sequences, and contrast levels stabilized. Color reproduction is also convincing - the soft greens, yellows, and blues look well saturated and remain stable. Healthy grain is present throughout the entire film. Occasionally some extremely light noise creeps in, but it is never distracting or problematic. There are no traces of overzealous sharpening. Lastly, blown through a digital projector the film conveys pleasing depth, tightness around the edges, and fluidity. A few tiny specks occasionally pop up here and there, but are definitely not distracting. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Barfly Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 and German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Koch Media have provided optional German subtitles for the main feature.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track opens up the film rather well, but its range of nuanced dynamics is fairly modest. The dialog is crisp, stable, and easy to follow. There is no problematic background hiss, clicks, or pops. There are no sync issues or audio dropouts to report in this review either.
