 (2010)

Black Swan Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A ballet dancer wins the lead in "Swan Lake" and is perfect for the role of the delicate White Swan - Princess Odette - but slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like Odile, the Black Swan.

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

Starring: Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel, Barbara Hershey, Winona Ryder, Benjamin Millepied
Director: Darren Aronofsky

Black Swan Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

To properly appreciate Black Swan's true-to-source 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, you need to understand the way the film was shot. Rather than using 35mm or cinema-centric digital rigs like the Red One camera, director Darren Aronofsky and cinematographer Matthew Libatique opted to use an unconventional mix of 16mm Arriflex cameras and two of Canon's 1080p video-capable DSLRs, the 5D Mark II and the 7D. I'm guessing the rationale for this combo had to do with more than just cost. (Although, this was probably one factor. 16mm is cheaper to shoot and develop than 35mm, and a 5D can be bought off the shelf, sans lens, for less than two and a half grand.) I'm sure Aronofsky had aesthetic and kinetic considerations in mind as well. Both the Arriflex and the Canon cameras lend themselves to a realistic, almost documentarian quality, and since the entire film was shot handheld, these smaller camera bodies would be much easier to wield. There are drawbacks. 16mm produces a grainier, softer image than 35mm— which has essentially double the analog resolution—and in low light, the Canon digital cameras are susceptible to a certain amount of noise. That said, I love the look of this film, and Fox's Blu-ray captures it near-perfectly. While detail is not as finely rendered as it could've been on 35mm, this is actually one of the sharper 16mm films I've seen, and you'll notice plenty of textures that stand out on screen, especially in close-ups. Likewise, color is strongly and realistically represented, and the dancing scenes—with their evocative costumes and sets and lighting—look wonderful. Shadow detail can sometimes be lost in an image peppered with grain/noise, but black levels are otherwise sufficiently deep, and contrast is perfect. Finally, I didn't notice any overt noise reduction or edge enhancement, and there are no errant compression quirks or other encode issues. Beautiful!


Black Swan Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sound design plays a huge role in the film's psychological terror, and the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track included on this disc brilliantly brings to life Nina's subjective nightmares. The rear channels are put to frequent use stirring up unsettling ambience—skittering subway sounds, ruffling feathers, heavy breathing—and directionality is so seamless as to be almost unnoticeable. Let me explain. You know how certain cross-channel effects in action films sound showy, stocky, too in-your-face? There's none of that here. Rather, the surround speakers are used subtly and effectively, sometimes broadcasting pinpoint accurate locational sounds, and elsewhere loosing the creepy noises that only exist inside Nina's head. One of my favorite audio moments is a simple rehearsal scene. There's a piano playing in one corner of the room, and as the camera circles around the dancers, the sounds of the piano circle realistically with it. Of course, music is also important to the tone of the film, and it all sounds wonderful, from the aching strains of Tchaikovsky, to Clint Mansell's evocative score, to the LFE-heavy bass thumps inside a packed nightclub. Everything is clear and forceful and dynamically rich. Dialogue rides comfortably at the top of the mix, and also has a clean, full presence. The disc also includes Spanish and French dubs—in Dolby Digital 5.1—as well as easy-to-read English SDH and Spanish subtitle tracks.
