Being John Malkovich

 (1999)

Being John Malkovich Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Craig Schwartz (John Cusack) is a struggling street puppeteer. In order to make some money, Craig takes a job as a filing clerk. One day he accidentally discovers a door...a portal into the brain of John Malkovich! For 15 minutes, he experiences the ultimate head trip - HE is being John Malkovich! Then he's dumped onto the New Jersey turnpike. With his beautiful office mate Maxine (Catherine Keener) and his pet-obsessed wife (Cameron Diaz), they hatch a plan to let others into John's brain for just $200 a trip.

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

Being John Malkovich 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, Spike Jonze's Being John Malkovich arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"Supervised by director Spike Jonze and cinematographer Lance Acord, this new digital transfer was created in 4K resolution on a DFT SCANITY film scanner from the original 35mm camera negative. The data was then color corrected on a DaVinci Resolve at Company 3, with colorist Stefan Sonnenfeld, who recently cut off his ponytail of twenty years.

Telecine supervisors: Lance Acord, Spike Jonze, Lee Kline.
Colorist: Stefan Sonnenfeld/Company 3, Santa Monica, CA."

The high-definition transfer is one of the best I've seen used for a catalog release of a contemporary film distributed by Universal Studios. This is not to imply that it is flawless, but it clearly has the organic qualities we expect to see retained when older films transition to Blu-ray.
The majority of the close-ups convey strong detail and good natural sharpness. Clarity is also pleasing. Generally speaking, they are also free of problematic denoising corrections and overzealous sharpening (see screencaptures #2 and 3). Immediately after fast cuts and zooms, however, occasionally mild softness sneaks in (see screencapture #1, which is from a series of short but fast imaginary flashbacks). Contrast levels are stable, excluding, of course, the head peeks where together with clarity they fluctuate. The color-scheme is pleasing, with the prominent grays, browns, and blues looking stable and unmanipulated. Like contrast and clarity, however, color saturation also tends to fluctuate. Lastly, there are no purely transfer-specific anomalies. There are no serious stability issues to report in this review either. All in all, the presentation should please fans of the film who have previously owned it only on DVD. (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).


Being John Malkovich Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 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.

I am convinced that anyone who has previously seen Being John Malkovich only on DVD will be tremendously impressed by the lossless audio track. It is surprisingly intense during selected sequences (the 'entry ride' into Malkovich's head, in particular, is very effective), while the surround channels are used very intelligently. Clearly, the film was carefully mixed and the strong lossless track now makes it easy to appreciate the mixers' good work. The dialog is consistently crisp, stable, and very easy to follow.
