Brubaker Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

20th Century Fox has put out some terrific-looking catalog releases recently, and Brubaker is no exception. Actually, I'd say this is one of the better high definition remasters I've seen lately for a film from the late 1970s and early '80s. To start, the source materials have undergone a careful, non-obtrusive cleanup, leaving the image absolutely pristine. Beyond one or two errant white specks, I didn't notice any print damage, and better yet, the picture is entirely natural and filmic, with no evidence of texture-smearing noise reduction or edge enhancement. (Note, though, that the film grain is quite heavy at times.) It's doubtful any theatrical prints of the movie ever looked this good. Besides a few soft shots here and there, clarity is excellent, pulling out the fine detail in Redford's craggy face, the worn-out prison uniforms, and other near-tangible textures. Color is perfectly balanced and stable too, dense without being oversaturated, with strong contrast, consistent black levels, and highlights that roll off smoothly. (I especially like how the color grading changes subtly from the early scenes—where the prison looks particularly dank and dingy—to the lighter atmosphere once Brubaker enacts some morale-improving reforms.) I didn't spot any compression issues or anything else that might detract from the viewing experience. A strong transfer, all around.


Brubaker Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fox has given us two audio options here, the default 5.1 surround mix and a true-to-source mono track, both in the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio codec. The two are functionally identical. The multi-channel expansions adds only the quietist ambience to the surround speakers—barracks clamor, cafeteria chatter, etc.—and most of the time, you really have to crane your ears to hear if they're being used at all. And that's fine. What's important is the quality of the audio coming from the front. Like the picture, the sound is free from age-related damage—no overt hisses, pops, crackles, or dropouts— and stable throughout, consistent in clarity and presence and depth. Dialogue is always clear and easy to understand, and Lalo Schifrin's score—with strummed acoustic guitars backed by orchestral strings—sounds wonderful. No issues here. The disc also includes Spanish, French, and German dubs, along with English SDH, Spanish, and German subtitles, which appear in white lettering.
