Carlos Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Olivier Assayas' Carlos arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

Criterion's high-definition transfer, supervised and approved by cinematographers Denis Lenoir and Yorick Le Saux, looks identical to the one Optimum Home Entertainment used for their Blu-ray release of Carlos in 2010. One could perhaps argue that compression is slightly better, and that during selected scenes some color nuances differ, but these differences are negligible at best.

Detail and clarity levels are very good, though as the action moves from 70s, 80s and 90s, there are various fluctuations, most notably in terms of color reproduction. Sharpness levels also have a tendency to fluctuate as Carlos moves from the Middle East to Europe and back. The important thing to remember, however, is that Carlos had two cinematographers, and that these image fluctuations are indeed intentional. Edge-enhancement is not a serious issue concern. The high-definition transfer is also free of harsh noise corrections, large artifacts and banding issues. There are no serious stability issues to report in this review either. All in all, because of the better compression selected scenes on Criterion's Blu-ray release looks ever so slightly better, but the upgrades are indeed trivial. (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).


Carlos Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (please note that the audio is actually comprised of relatively large chunks of dialog spoken in a number of different languages, including Russian, English, German, Spanish, Hungarian, and Arabic). For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. Unfortunately, they only appear when English isn't spoken, which is somewhat disappointing as many of the important characters in the film are not native English-speakers and have rather thick accents. When turned on, the subtitles appear inside the image frame.

Unsurprisingly, the French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is very convincing. It has an excellent dynamic amplitude which handles the numerous action scenes and the exotic soundtrack very well. The dialog is crisp, clean, and stable, but as noted earlier, optional English subtitles should have also been included for the parts where English is spoken.
