High Plains Drifter Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

In a rare show of catalog interest, Universal has issued a fresh scan of this 1973 feature. The AVC encoded image (2.35:1 aspect ratio) presentation provides a crisp, clean HD appearance, with only a mild amount of filtering to manage the grain, not erase it. Detail is superb, isolating facial particulars in meaty, sweaty close-ups, while locations reveal naturalistic textures, adding to the remote mood of the film. Blacks are consistent and deep, with little lost to evening incidents, while period outfits retain their craftsmanship. Colors are balanced and purposeful, with Lago's transformation into a red-painted Hell a highlight of the viewing experience, while costuming allows for additional explorations into primaries. Skintones are natural and communicative. Print is clean, without damage. Overall, I wish all the studio's vault titles were treated this kindly, as a simple effort of preservation allows "Drifter" to ride confidently on BD.


High Plains Drifter Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD MA sound mix finds a suitable equilibrium for what amounts to a spare soundtrack punctuated with blasts of violence. Dialogue exchanges are crisply defined, with group activity managed acceptably, while purred threats from Eastwood are never buried. Scoring cues retain character and instrumentation, supporting comfortably without intrusion, setting the eerie mood of the picture, dialed up in intensity when the moment calls for it. Atmospherics are satisfactory, preserving metal spurs and environmental influence. Sound effects are a real treat here, finding whip cracks and gunshots pronounced, while explosions add a little low-end hustle to the listening experience. Surrounds are eager during scenes of chaos and for musical leadership, but the majority of the track is enjoyably frontal. Possibly inherent distortion is detected in the finale, leaving behind a few crackly moments.
