Carlito's Way

 (1993)

Carlito's Way Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Sprung from prison on a legal technicality by his cocaine-addled attorney, former drug kingpin Carlito Brigante stuns the local underworld when he vows to go straight. Taking a job managing a glitzy, low-life nightclub, he tracks down his onetime girlfriend and rekindles their romance, promising he's changed for good. But Carlito's dream of going legitimate is undermined at every turn by murderous former cronies and even deadlier young thugs out to make a name for themselves.

For more about Carlito's Way and the Carlito's Way Blu-ray release, see Carlito's Way Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Al Pacino, Sean Penn, Penelope Ann Miller, John Leguizamo, Ingrid Rogers, Luis Guzmán
Director: Brian De Palma

Carlito's Way Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Carlito's Way blasts its way onto Blu-ray in a blood red VC-1 encoded transfer in full 1080p and a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Universal hasn't exactly been treating its catalog titles with a lot of care lately (Out of Africa and Spartacus are two recent, largely lamentable examples). The bad news is Universal doesn't seem to have done much with Carlito, following in the footsteps of those other, perhaps more illustrious, releases. The good news is that means no hideous edge enhancement and no apparent DNR. The bad news is the print does not seem to have been cleaned or restored, so there is occasional very slight damage and debris. The good news (is this ping pong or something?) is the film looks excellently sharp overall and well detailed, and colors are excitingly vibrant, especially on the red end of the spectrum. Black levels and contrast are very strong, and shadow detail is really exceptional. De Palma uses some interesting multi-hued palettes throughout the movie, which play out like a sort of nightmarish episode of pastel-laden Miami Vice, and the Blu-ray reproduces this wide variety of shades brilliantly. The film actually starts in a post-processed black and white sequence, and contrast is exceptional in those moments.


Carlito's Way Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Carlito's Way's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix may not be as bombastic as some audiophiles might be expecting, especially considering the subject matter, but it's really a good track in and of itself, with a full and well rendered soundfield and some of the more consistently active rear channel effects I've heard recently. One of the greatest pleasures of this track is the absolutely gorgeous underscore by Patrick Doyle, with elegiac string writing which is very redolent of Barber's "Adagio for Strings" and Vaughan Williams' "Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis." While some of the foley effects like gunshots sound compressed and overly narrow, balance between dialogue, score and effects is very well modulated, with dialogue always easy to hear and directionally well placed.
