Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Much to my relief, Sony's 4K restoration pays proper homage to Kubrick's intentions with a faithful 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that renders each scene with meticulous care and revitalizes the director's forty-five-year old production. A filmic veneer of heavy grain peppers every frame, giving Dr. Strangelove a wonderful cinematic texture befitting its era. Clarity is rarely affected and, more often than not, reveals far more detail than those who own the film on DVD are accustomed to seeing. Behold the grooves of the nervous doctor's leathery glove, the tiny dials framing James Earl Jones' smooth flight helmet, the cross-hatched stitching of several stuffy suits, and the pinpoints of light dotting the war room's global monitoring stations. More importantly, contrast is spot on: midrange gradients are clean, whites are crisp, blacks are inky, and delineation is both natural and absorbing. Edge enhancement spoils the integrity of the image a bit, but aside from a few glaring halos, it's hardly a distraction.

If I have any lingering complaint, it's that errant artifacts and print damage make their presence known (particularly during the various B-52 flight and in-flight sequences). Even though they don't ruin the overall presentation, they're intrusive enough to warrant some concern. Thankfully, banding, noise reduction, telecine wobble, and contrast wavering are nowhere to be found. The Blu-ray edition of Dr. Strangelove may not feature the most spectacular catalog transfer on the market, but videophiles and Kubrick enthusiasts alike should be more than pleased with the results.


Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Sony serves up two audio options: a retooled Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround remix for modern filmfans, and a high-quality presentation of the film's original mono track for purists. Both mixes deliver their respective goods in subtle style. The dynamic remix stands out with subdued (but effective) rear speaker activity and a welcome dose of low-frequency support, while the crystal clear mono track is surprisingly spry considering it's been minted from a forty-five-year old source. Likewise, the TrueHD offering spreads its wares across the soundfield, thereby creating more convincing war room experiences and engaging B-52 visits, while the mono mix relies on precise prioritization to avoid unfortunate pile-ups in the soundscape. Of course, the condition of the original audio elements lead to a few mishaps (air hiss and inconsistent dialogue normalization among them), but any shortcomings are fairly negligible. Ultimately, regardless of your preference, the Blu-ray edition of Dr. Strangelove should satiate your hunger for steady, reliable sonics. I can't imagine Kubrick's chatty black comedy sounding any better than it does on each of these excellent tracks.
