Drawing Flies

 (1996)

Drawing Flies Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Donner and his roommates are out of money and about to get evicted from their home. As a diversion from their situation, he invites them to his uncle's cabin in the Canadian wilderness. They all go along, but soon learn that there is no cabin—Donner's really trying to find Sasquatch.

Drawing Flies Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Following in the Kevin Smith's Clerks footsteps, Malcolm Ingram and Matthew Gissing opted to save some money by shooting with a 16mm Arriflex camera, which inevitably results in decreased sharpness and more pronounced grain compared to a 35mm production. On the flip side, this aesthetic—which is reminiscent of the cinéma vérité documentaries of the '60s and '70s—really works for this kind of indie slacker movie. (If it were shot today, it'd be done digitally and would lose much of its handmade charm.) Kino-Lorber has given the film a new 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, and the results appear absolutely true to the low-budget source material. The warm, grainy image is organic and unfiltered, with no obvious digital noise reduction or edge enhancement, and there are no immediately visible compression artifacts either. There is some light print damage in the form of white/black specks and occasional vertical scratches, but nothing major. While I've never seen the film on its now long-out-of-print DVD, I'm sure texture and fine detail are much improved here; the picture is rarely sharp—due to a combination of the 16mm analog resolution, heavy grain, and sometimes misplaced focus—but I doubt Kino could've gotten any more clarity out of the print. The black and white tonality is likewise subject to certain amateurish filmmaking quirks—inconsistent exposure, mostly—but the contrast is as stable as can be expected.


Drawing Flies Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The disc's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono track is also no better and no worse than the original materials, which are decidedly lo-fi. "Sound design" is limited, and the dialogue—while always understandable—often has a slightly soft, fuzzy quality. Pops, hisses, and crackles aren't a huge source of concern, though, and neither is there any brashness to the high end. Actually, there's not much high end at all; the films soundtrack of indie sludge-pop has a mid-heavy, somewhat faraway sound. This isn't a complaint so much as a simple observation; the audio is what it is. At the very least, it's functional and reflective of the way in which the micro-budget film was made.
