Dazed and Confused Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

This high-definition transfer of the director's cut of Dazed and Confused, which has been supervised by director Richard Linklater and cinematographer Lee Daniel, definitely looks stronger than the one Universal Studios used for their Blu-ray release of the film (reviewed here). I have tried to match a few screencaptures so that you could get a general idea what the key differences between the two high-definition transfers are.

Next to Criterion's high-definition transfer, the Universal Studios high-definition transfer clearly looks to have underwent stronger noise filtering. If you look at screencapture #19 and compare it to screencapture #3 from the review linked above, you will immediately see that the Universal Studios high-definition transfer looks notably softer. On the Criterion release contrast levels have also been elevated and the color-scheme pushed up (compare screencapture #10 to screencapture #4 from the review linked above). Naturally, reds, greens, and blues appear far better saturated, but not always natural, as they should. Unsurprisingly, the Criterion high-definition transfer looks rawer and often times edgier. Furthermore, both high-definition transfers convey various traces of mild to moderate sharpening (see screencapture #17), and I am convinced that sensitive viewers will notice their presence during normal playback. The good news is that the sharpening is prominent only during selected outdoor scenes and practically impossible to spot during the nighttime footage. Finally, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. All in all, Criterion's Blu-ray release is the clear winner, though there are various small issues with the presentation that I have to believe could not be addressed. As it was the case with Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, there is only so much Criterion could do with the existing Universal Studios masters they have to work with. (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).


Dazed and Confused Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 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 SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The audio has been optimized very well. The loseless track allows the outstanding soundtrack to shine during some of the film's most memorable sequences - the bass has plenty of oomph and the high-frequencies are never overdone; there are absolutely no distortions either. I was not particularly impressed with the surround activity, but I have no reason to believe that there are any serious compromises there. The dialog is always crisp, clean, stable, and very easy to follow. For the record, I did not detect any problematic pops, cracks, or hiss to report in this review.
