Cleopatra Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Cleopatra is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.22:1. As fans of this film no doubt know, Fox released a Cleopatra Blu-ray in the United Kingdom last year which my colleague Dr. Svet Atanasov reviewed here. I imported this region free title since I am such a huge fan of the film and couldn't wait for its announced domestic release. I have included five screenshots from the UK edition (the last five accompanying this review in locations 31-35) which show there is no appreciable difference between these two releases, leading me to believe these are almost certainly the same transfer. In fact the only major difference between the UK and US releases was the decision to place the Entr'acte at the beginning of the second disc rather than the end of the first disc, something that had riled the more persnickety consumers who picked up the UK release. Otherwise, this domestic release is very much in line with what Svet discussed in his review of the UK edition. Some people have grumbled about the color timing of this release, alleging a blue tint, but if anything I feel this may be just slightly (and I emphasize slightly) on the brown side, something that tends to happen with aging elements (I have subtracted a half a point due to this, but obviously your mileage may well vary). That said, this is simply a staggering transfer of large format source elements, one absolutely rife with impeccable fine object detail and some amazing depth of field in the location sequences. There is no damage that I noticed anywhere throughout this transfer, and also no compression artifacts. Best of all, there hasn't been any over aggressive digital tweaking here, and the result is a beautifully filmic presentation.


Cleopatra Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Cleopatra features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix (as well as a Dolby Digital 4.0 mix). There's some very slight brittleness in the DTS mix that is quite noticeable in some of the dialogue, especially in the first scene with Caesar and Cleopatra, where Harrison's voice sounds just slightly boxy (I almost wonder if this scene was post-looped, which might account for the quality difference). Otherwise, though, this is a spectacular sounding track, one that really makes the most of Alex North's absolutely miraculous score (easily one of my all time favorites, and one that I personally believe should have easily bested John Addison's charming but less ambitious Tom Jones for that year's Academy Award). The doublebasses and cellos are so much more vibrant in this lossless mix it's almost unbelievable, as is the huge battery of exotic percussion North marshaled for this incredibly visceral score. Other than the slight anomalies mentioned above, dialogue is very cleanly presented and there is some incredible immersion in several of the film's huge set pieces (some of which depend again upon North's simply incomparable scoring).
