Boys Don't Cry Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Boys Don't Cry debuts on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's a suitable upgrade from the film's DVD release, although—and I'm only speculating here—it looks to me like it was possibly sourced from an old master. The picture is frequently soft—it always has been, to some extent— and fine detail is not nearly as refined as it perhaps could be. Additionally, there are light traces of noise reduction that also have a softening effect. I stress that this is light DNR. Grain is still visible, just not as sharp as it would be normally. On the plus side, while the film's palette is rather bleak, color reproduction is strong and stable, with no pulsing, flickering, or boosting. Black levels are sufficiently deep and contrast is consistent as well. Likewise, there don't appear to be any excess compression issues. While I'm fairly confident the film could look better—given the money and effort—I'm content for now with the image as it's presented here.


Boys Don't Cry Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

I have no problems at all with the film's rather straightforward DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which offers few aural embellishments but hits all the essentials—clarity, dynamic breadth, and a balanced mix. The rear channels are mostly used for quiet ambient effects—barking dogs, wind, outdoorsy noise, barroom chatter—but the score by Nathan Larson (member of 1990s band Shudder to Think) occasionally fills the soundfield as well. Most of the film is carried by dialogue, which is expressive, clear, and comprehensible throughout. There's really nothing notable about the track, but there are no problems either. The disc also includes audio and subtitle tracks in a panoply of languages.
