Blue Velvet Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

According the MGM press release touting this new Blu-ray version of Blue Velvet, the film's AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1 was personally supervised and color corrected by David Lynch himself. The color here is absolutely superb, gorgeously saturated and full of the almost surrealistic deep hues that Lynch and cinematographer Frederick Elmes favor throughout the film. Fine detail is also excellent in the brightly lit scenes, and even in some of the darker ones as well, with textures such as Rossellini's blue velvet nightgown or the pill on Dern's sweater seeming almost palpable. The film does exhibit fairly noticeable crush in a number of scenes which may bother some viewers as so much of this film is intentionally dark (as in literally dimly lit, though of course figuratively it's dark, too). There is some passing edge enhancement noticeable in a couple of scenes where characters are backlit (the screencap of McLachlan at the top of the staircase is a fair representation of this—it's never horrible, but it's definitely there). Some of the film looks just a tad on the soft side, though that is also part and parcel of Lynch and Elmes' intentionally ironic, pseudo-"glamorous" take on the suburban world of the film. This is on the whole an extremely crisp and sharp looking Blu-ray that is certainly going to satisfy most if not all of this film's fairly rabid legion of fans.


Blue Velvet Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Blue Velvet's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix is a brilliantly rendered and often almost subliminally subtle piece of work which adds immeasurably to the film's unsettling vibe. Angelo Badalamenti's score is wickedly serene at times, but listen carefully to how often ominous LFE creeps into some of his cues, as if to gently nudge the viewer (and listener) into a slightly off kilter state of awareness. The track has some great immersive moments, including little bits like the spray of water in the opening scene where Jeffrey's father has his heart attack, which is then followed by some LFE as the camera pans to the beetles at work. The now iconic uses of "Blue Velvet" and "In Dreams" also sound hauntingly magnificent on this track. Dialogue is extremely well presented, occasionally nicely directional, and the sequences in The Slow Club offer some great surround activity.

It should be noted that this is another of those MGM-Fox titles with no main menu and no bookmarking ability which my colleague Michael Reuben regularly takes to task. At least this release has copious supplemental material in its favor.
