Best in Show Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Consistent with its documentary aesthetic (and also no doubt due to budgetary constraints), Best in Show was shot on 16mm film using available light. Although Cinematographer Roberto Schaefer is perfectly capable of producing a polished, glossy image (e.g., Quantum of Solace), here he delivered an appropriately textured and slightly grainy product that looks like it was captured "on the run"—which it frequently was. For example, in the painful scene where the Flecks attempt to check into the hotel, the production couldn't afford to rent the facility for the day, which meant that the staff continued doing business as Guest filmed, with phones ringing and patrons registering on either side of the actors performing their lines.

Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray will disappoint those who expect "pop" from their Blu-rays, but it accurately captures the film's roughness and preserves the somewhat coarser grain structure that resulted from the combination of 16mm photography and available light. Fine detail remains quite good in close-ups and medium shots, although in some longer shots, the limits of 16mm's resolution become apparent. Colors are generally realistic, and no attempt has been made to "push" them toward greater saturation or intensity. A minute amount of video noise creeps in from time to time, but Warner is to be commended for not trying to hide it with DNR or strip it away with high frequency filtering. No other artifacts were observed; the 90-minute film fits comfortably on a BD-25, especially since all the supplements are in standard definition.

A detail worth noting: Unlike the usual Warner treatment of films framed at 1.85:1 theatrically, Best in Show has not been opened up to 1.78:1 on Blu-ray. It remains at its original aspect ratio.


Best in Show Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Best in Show was released with a 5.1 soundtrack, which appeared on the DVD and is reproduced on the Blu-ray in DTS-HD MA 5.1, but you're not likely to notice much sound from anything other than the center speaker. The documentary style of the film dictates that all sonic activity will come from the front, and most of it is dialogue. Even the footage from the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, which would be a likely candidate for crowd noise and other such surround phenomena in a different kind of movie, doesn't break the illusion that the entire film has been shot by a documentary crew with one sound man and a boom mike. Except for the closing credits, music doesn't occur on the soundtrack unless sung by someone on camera. Most of the compositions are credited to Eugene Levy or Jeffrey C.J. Vanston.
