Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

 (1998)

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Journalist Raoul Duke and his lawyer Dr. Gonzo drive from LA to Las Vegas on a drugs binge. They nominally cover news stories, including a convention on drug abuse, but also sink deeper into a frightening psychedelic otherworld. As Vietnam, Altamont and the Tate killings impinge from the world of TV news, Duke and Gonzo see casinos, reptiles and the American dream.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas tumbles onto the scene with the same commendable but imperfect 1080p/VC-1 transfer that appeared on Universal's 2006 HD DVD release. First, the good. Syrupy colors and bottomless blacks dominate nearly every shot, lending Gilliam's sweltering Nevada palette and trippy lithium-addled primaries legitimate power and punch. Skintones, though purposefully pushed to extremes on occasion, are warm and lifelike, and contrast, though skirting the heights of depths of light and shadow, remains strong and stable throughout. Detail is impressive as well. Closeups are riddled with pulsing pores, streams of sweat, jutting stubble, and the remains of cocaine misfires; establishing shots are teeming with well-rendered travelers, dilapidated street signs, swirling sand storms, and thousands of tiny, flashing lights. Grain, unobtrusive as it is, has thankfully been preserved, and serious macroblocking and unintentional noise are nowhere to be found. In fact, compared to all of the film's DVD releases, the Blu-ray edition represents a significant upgrade and showcases countless improvements. That being said, there are a number of problems that simply can't be ignored. Dark lounges and other nightmarish interiors are hindered by slippery delineation, edge enhancement continually undermines the integrity of the image, and clarity fluctuates quite dramatically at times. Moreover, print damage, dirt, and blemishes can be spotted throughout the film (most noticeably during Duke and Gonzo's first drive to Vegas), and errant wavering affects the searing skies. Eagle-eyed videophiles will even notice minor artifacting, aliasing, and crush flittering into view throughout the film.

Regardless, fans of Fear and Loathing will be quick to forgive such shortcomings -- some of which can be attributed to the original print -- and actively overlook the shakier aspects of its catalog presentation. The gushing fan in my brain wanted me to raise my video score by half a point, but the grim-faced critic next to him convinced me to stick to my guns.


Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is as unpredictable and unwieldy as the film itself -- looping is obvious and jarring, sound effects sometimes come and go as they please, and Depp's jabbering is occasionally unintelligible -- but the majority of these weaknesses trace back to Gilliam's sound design, not the studio's technical efforts. Dialogue is generally crisp and well-prioritized, LFE support is quite satisfying, and dynamics are noteworthy. Nimble pans effectively send Depp and Del Toro flinging from channel to channel, and directionality is decent, especially considering the insanity of the characters' drug-induced haze. Unfortunately, the rear speakers are a bit too restrained at times (even when Depp's narration isn't anchoring the soundfield to the center channel), failing to envelop the listener as readily as they do during Duke and the doc's more chaotic misadventures. That's not to say the front-heavy nature of the track spoils the experience, mind you, just that it doesn't always lend itself to the madness unfolding on screen. Ambience and acoustics are adequate, but far too two-dimensional to warrant any serious praise. All in all, Universal's lossless track is faithful to a fault. Fear and Loathing apologists will quickly shrug off the worst of it, but audiophiles will have to grit their teeth and focus on everything the mix does have to offer.
