Ed Wood Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

In 1994 it was still possible for cinematographer Stefan Czapsky to shoot black-and-white stock and have it professionally processed, but the technical facilities would disappear within the next few years. (In 2001, when the Coen Brothers decided to shoot The Man Who Wasn't There in B&W, DP Roger Deakins had to shoot it on color stock, then remove the color in post-production.) Burton and Czapsky had experimented with a desaturated, monochromatic style in Batman Returns, but according to Burton's commentary, they realized that B&W was essential for Ed Wood when it came time to develop the makeup for Bela Lugosi, and no one could find a reference for how Lugosi should look in color.

With a few minor issues, Disney's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray joins the ranks of superior B&W renderings in hi-def, combining deep blacks with finely differentiated shadings of gray that allow for superior delineation of detail on such crucial items as, e.g., the fur of the angora sweaters that Wood found so sensually stimulating, as well as Lugosi's deteriorating physical condition and the meticulous recreations of Wood's tacky sets. Sharpness is consistently excellent without artificial enhancement, and the film's grain pattern appears natural and undisturbed.

The only negative is occasional video noise, somewhat like aliasing, but more limited and contained, that appears in the occasional fine pattern. I saw maybe three or four instances of this during the film's entire running time, but it was a reminder that even Blu-ray's resolution has its limitations. (So, too, does 2K digital projection, because I sometimes see the same phenomenon there.)


Ed Wood Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Ed Wood's DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack is excellent, but it's an entirely front-centered mix. The sound editing, like many other technical elements, including the cinematography, was deliberately crafted not to seem too modern. Accordingly, the rear channels are used almost exclusively to support Howard Shore's inventively goofy and, at times, genuinely tragic score. (This is the rare Tim Burton film not scored by Danny Elfman.) The dialogue is always clear.
