Hair Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Don't be concerned when the film starts. The opening sequence in Oklahoma isn't representative of the 1080p AVC-encoded transfer. It's the title sequence, and it looks awful. The optical printing process that was standard procedure for superimposing titles over a film image until about ten years ago often "locked in" dirt and print damage, but Hair is an extreme example. It's almost as if someone went out of their way to find the grainiest, scratchiest dupe in the library for the title shots.

The image improves dramatically once the titles end. Grain, though still present, is much better controlled, and print damage, though still an occasional distraction, is a much less frequent occurrence and far less severe when it occurs. The film had multiple cinematographers, of which the lead was Forman's fellow Czech and frequent collaborator, Miroslav Ondrícek, who oversaw the difficult task of lighting large groups of dancers and stunt people in challenging outdoor locations such as Central Park. The Blu-ray lets you appreciate the extent of the crew's success. The details of Ann Roth's elaborate costume designs are on full display, showcased against the park's autumn leaves and winding paths. Black levels are sufficiently well-delineated that the dance routine for "Colored Spade", which is performed by African-Americans in a tunnel at night, plays out like the ironic dance of shadows that choreographer Twyla Tharp obviously intended.

If there were motion or compression artifacts of any kind, they escaped my attention. Colors appear to be accurate without oversaturation. Hair uses a variety of palettes, including the earth tones of Central Park in autumn, the blues and whites of the city in winter, the pastel dresses and black tuxedos of the engagement party and, of course, the dull army green at Claude's base.

One of the film's recurrent visual strategies is to "discover" a character in a large landscape filled with people, and the film did its crowd scenes the old-fashioned way, before CGI allowed crowds to be added in post-production. Scenes of this nature never had the right impact on home video, because there wasn't enough resolution to show a huge crowd in sufficient detail. But there is now.


Hair Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

According to IMDb, Hair received a 70mm release, in which case there would have been a 6-track mix. This may account for the quality of the 5.1 track, presented here in DTS lossless. Unlike many remixes from matrixed surround, this track feels genuinely immersive, with a sense of the singing crowd dispersed around the entire surround field. Given how heavily the film depends on its score, and how much of the music is supported by a large chorus, this effective use of a large soundscape in a film from 1979 is a welcome surprise.
