Beyond the Black Rainbow

Beyond the Black Rainbow Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

There's not much use trying to write up a standard checklist-style evaluation of Beyond the Black Rainbow's picture quality on Blu-ray. The film has been pre-and-post-processed to oblivion, so the usual rules don't really apply. That said, I think the film looks fantastic in high definition, and I'm certain Magnolia's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer—minus some negligible compression artifacts—is true to source. Shot on 2-perf 35mm, the movie has a very chunky grain structure, which naturally effects the clarity of the picture. The softness here isn't a bad thing, though, as it accentuates the simultaneously gritty/polished retro-futurist vibe. (Besides, Panatos is always throwing things intentionally out of focus anyway.) A big part of the film's aesthetic is the heavily stylized color palette, which involves lots of bright reds and blues. There's a bit of a cross- processed look here at times, with creamy yellowish highlights and raised black levels that are slightly tinted. It works. On the encode/authoring side of things, there's no edge enhancement, DNR, or other concerns, and the compression noise you might pick up while pixel peeping is completely unnoticeable from a normal viewing distance.


Beyond the Black Rainbow Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Beyond the Black Rainbow's sound design—delivered here via lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track—is all about the atmosphere. You won't hear many whiz-bang effects or notice much cross-channel directionality, but you will be immersed in the acoustic uneasiness of the Arboria Institute. Strange electronic thrummings. Flourescent buzzes. Wub-wub- wub subwoofer pulses. Mechanical hisses. Bleeps and bloops. Archaic modem lines grating and pinging. It's very effective and it all sounds great, with sufficient clarity and oomph. The minimal dialogue is clean and clear too, requiring no fiddling with your remote once you set a decent listening level. (English SDH and Spanish subs are available in bright yellowing lettering for those who need or want them.) The real kicker, however, is the menacing old-school synthesizer score by Jeremy Schmidt, which wobbles and drones throughout the film, oozing mood. Fans of Drive's soundtrack take note.
