Behind the Candelabra Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

As he has done on all his films since Traffic, Soderbergh acted as his own cinematographer under the pseudonym "Peter Andrews". Behind the Candelabra was photographed on the Red Epic camera and finished on a digital intermediate, from which this Blu-ray was presumably sourced.

The image on HBO's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is suffused with a golden glow whenever we are in Liberace's world (which is most of the movie) and otherwise uses cooler colors. Whatever the palette, detail is generally excellent, allowing the viewer to take in the exhaustive detail with which the film crew recreated Liberace's mansion, wardrobe and stage shows. Blacks are solid when they appear, colors are vivid (Liberace wouldn't have it any other way), and contrast is strong without being overstated. Despite the use of a BD-25, compression artifacts were not an issue; RED footage compresses well, which is partly due to the lack of film grain, which can pose a challenge for a compressionist.


Behind the Candelabra Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The 5.1 soundtrack for Behind the Candelabra was overseen by Soderbergh's long-time mixer and editor, Larry Blake, and is presented on Blu-ray in lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1. The musical score was the last work of the late Marvin Hamlisch, to whom the film is dedicated. Hamlisch, who was no stranger to either the movies or Las Vegas, has recreated the sound of Liberace's arrangements with finesse and expertise, and the Blu-ray's soundtrack puts you into the middle of them, complete with a sense of the star's amplified voice in the auditorium (although Douglas can't possibly match the real Liberace's talents as a singer). In many cases, recordings of Liberace's own piano performances have been woven into the mix; in other instances, another performer has recorded them anew. The track has wonderful fidelity and broad dynamic range, and if it had to be Hamlisch's last, it's a proud accomplishment.

Non-musical sequences have clear, well-prioritized dialogue, well-placed effects and a nice sense of ambiance particular to each environment. An impromptu visit by Scott and Lee to a sleazy porn store with private video booths is especially well done.
