Beasts of the Southern Wild Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Beautifully shot on 16mm, Beasts of the Southern Wild arrives on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that may not be as sharp or clean as most modern movies—shot digitally or on 35mm—but has a gritty, textured, handmade quality that's perfect for the tone of the low-budget film. Shooting on 16mm essentially halves the analog resolution and doubles the size of the grain, so you should expect a picture that's inherently somewhat soft and chunky. That's not to say watching the film in high definition doesn't have immediately visible benefits over DVD. In 1080p, the patina of the grain is more natural, the details more refined, the lines tighter and the skin and clothing details better resolved. (Do your own comparison —a DVD is included in the Blu-ray set.) Basically, you're getting a more faithful, filmic, true-to-source presentation. There's no sign of digital noise reduction here, no edge enhancement, and no glaring compression or encode issues. If the image isn't super-sharp, it makes up for it with great color gradation; highlights have a slightly creamy cast, the palette of earth tones is rich and dense, and contrast balances a punchy tonal curve with preserved shadow detail. This is probably the best-looking 16mm film I've seen on Blu-ray since Revanche.


Beasts of the Southern Wild Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The film's meager budget in no way constrains its well-engineered sound design, which is presented here in a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. From the very first frames we're aurally immersed in the story's world, with gusts of wind and rippling thunder emerging from the rear channels. This sense of you're-here-in-The-Bathtub-too engagement is consistent throughout the film. Every scene comes alive with natural ambience—insects and birds, torrential rain, lapping water, the rustle of leaves, sheets of ice collapsing into the sea. The more hefty effects are just as convincing; explosions send debris spraying in all directions, helicopter blades beat overhead, the noble Aurochs roots and grunts and stampedes. Backing it up is a Creole-tinged Americana score—by composer Dan Romer and director Benh Zeitlin—that soars and rattles, providing the emotional undercurrent for each scene. (You'll have the main theme stuck in your head for weeks.) Everything is grounded, clear, and dynamically expressive, and the dialogue glides through it all unhindered, clean and easily understood. The disc includes optional English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles, a Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital dub, and a descriptive audio track.
