Holy Motors Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Holy Motors is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Indomina Films with an MPEG-2 encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. As I have mentioned several times in my reviews, I am not an especial fan of the look of Red shot features, so I probably would not have given this the stellar review my colleague Dr. Svet Atanasov did in his write up on the British release, but I also have to wonder if perhaps the fact that this domestic release utilizes the MPEG-2 codec (as opposed to the British use of AVC) has contributed to what I personally would call a kind of drab looking outing some of the time. The film is simply swathed in shadows and darkness a lot of the time, and unfortunately that tendency when added to the Red proclivity for kind of flat, textureless appearances add up to what seems to my eyes a sometimes overly soft and ill defined presentation. That said, things pop really well in the well lit sequences (see screenshot two of Eva Mendes for a great example). In those moments, fine detail improves dramatically and colors are also much more robust. But a lot of this presentation left me wanting more—more detail, more visual information in the dimly lit parts of the frame and just overall more crispness and clarity.

(Rather oddly, all of the supplementary material is in fact encoded via AVC.)


Holy Motors Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Unlike the British release's lossless audio offerings, Indomina's version presents the soundtrack via only a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. What's here is certainly fine sounding, and some might argue about how much more lossless audio could have added to a film that is frankly not awash in huge sound effects or overwhelming immersion to begin with, but of course most Blu-ray consumers want lossless audio one way or the other. Fidelity here is quite good, and the surround activity, while sometimes quite subtle, is nicely done, especially due to the fact that Oscar visits such a huge variety of environments. Dialogue is clean and the entire mix is well prioritized.
