Brazil

 (1985)

Brazil Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

In the future, a clerk at the all-powerful Ministry of Information sticks to his ideals and ends up crushed by the system in this half comedy, half horror story from former 'Monty Python' animator Terry Gilliam. Like Orwell's novel '1984', which it echoes, the future is seen from a 1940's perspective.

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

Starring: Jonathan Pryce, Michael Palin, Kim Greist, Robert De Niro, Katherine Helmond, Ian Holm
Director: Terry Gilliam

Brazil Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Terry Gilliam's Brazil arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"Approved by director Terry Gilliam, this high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from a new 35mm interpositive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Image Systems' DVNR was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Transfer supervisor: Maria Palazzola.
Colorist: Gregg Garvin/Modern Videofilm, Los Angeles."

The digitally restored high-definition transfer used for this release, which was supervised and approved by director Terry Gilliam, reminds quite a bit about the one that was used for the Blu-ray release of the director's acclaimed Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - it isn't sourced from a new master prepared from a fresh new scan. Naturally, some minor age-related issues are at times easy to spot. For example, extremely light noise is often exposed during the darker sequences (see screencapture #5). Elsewhere a few traces of light sharpening corrections also pop up. Depth and detail, however, are pleasing. There are no traces of excessive degraining. Color reproduction is also good, but I felt that there is some room for improvement as far as saturation is concerned. Generally speaking, contrast is stable (with the only exception being some of the dream sequences where there are some intended minor fluctuations). There are no large cuts, debris, stains, or warps. There are no serious stability issues to report in this review either. All in all, even though there is clearly some room for improvement, this is indeed a satisfying presentation of Brazil. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Brazil Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track is quite impressive. Depth and dynamic movement are very good, while clarity is unquestionably superior -- sizable gaps in quality between the lossless track and the lossy track from Criterion's DVD release of the film are virtually everywhere. The raid scenes, in particular, sound fantastic. Acclaimed composer Michael Kamen's soundtrack also gets a strong boost (again, dynamic movement is very good, allowing the strings, for example, to truly shine). The dialog is crisp and clean. There are no pops, cracks, audio dropouts, or distortions.
