Days of Heaven Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

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

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

"Days of Heaven is presented in the filmmakers' preferred aspect ratio of 1.78:1. On standard 4:3 televisions, the image will appear letterboxed. On widescreen televisions, the image should fit the screen. Created from a 35mm interpositive struck from the 35mm A/B roll original negative, this high-definition digital transfer was supervised and approved by director Terrence Malick, original camera operator and renowned cinematographer John Bailey, and editor Billy Weber. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, and warps were manually removed using MTI's DRS system; flicker was removed with Pixel Farm's PFClean system; and Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction."

As far as I am concerned, this is a reference quality transfer. Fine object detail is striking, clarity very strong and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. The color-scheme is also very impressive. Yellows, greens, blues, dark reds, brown and blacks are rich and well saturated yet natural looking. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are not a serious issue of concern. On the contrary, many of the daylight scenes look like giant moving pictures, conveying terrific depth and nuanced colors. The film's grain structure is intact, even though some minor noise corrections have been applied. On the other hand, there are absolutely no stability issues that I noticed while viewing the film. Finally, I did not detect any disturbing scratches, warps, cuts, marks or stains to report in this review. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Days of Heaven Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The audio treatment is as impressive as the video treatment. While the English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track would not test the muscles of your audio system, I think that many of you would be genuinely impressed with its nuanced audio effects -- the wind blowing, birds chirping, horses galloping, etc. As expected, the dialog is crisp, clean and very easy to follow. I also did not detect any balance issues with Ennio Morricone's beautiful soundtrack. Finally, I did not hear any annoying pops, cracks, or hissing to report in this review.
