Hounddog Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Whatever issues one may have with the plot, there are none with the video presentation. Three cinematographers are credited on Hounddog: Ed Lachman (who most recently created the rich period look for the miniseries of Mildred Pierce) designed the film's style and began the project, but had to leave midway through the shoot due to other commitments; Jim Denault; and Stephen Thompson (who was originally the gaffer on the film). But one of the advantages of the digital intermediate process is that it lets the DI colorist compensate for any variations created by such changes in personnel, and the film's image is beautifully consistent, with rich ambers, browns and greens dominating the daytime scenes, and cool blues and deep blacks at night. Hannover House's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray was presumably sourced from the DI, and the image is what we've come to expect from such sources: clean, noiseless and detailed, with excellent contrast, solid blacks and vivid colors. There's no indication of high frequency filtering or artificial sharpening, and the film fits comfortably on a BD-25 without artifacts, given the sparse extras.


Hounddog Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

As is often the case with the initial Blu-ray releases from new publishers, Hounddog offers identical audio options to what one would find on DVD, namely DD 5.1 and DD 2.0. I haven't yet seen any of Hannover's later releases, but presumably they either already have or shortly will adopt lossless audio as a standard, as have most other issuers of Blu-ray discs, because Blu-ray consumers expect nothing less. Just how much improvement would be obtained from lossless encoding here is debatable, though, because Hounddog's 5.1 mix isn't especially demanding. The surround speakers are used primarily to convey the pervasive sounds of nature (crickets at night, birds and insects by day), and in one creepy dream sequence the surrounds come alive with hissing snakes. Otherwise, they're limited to supporting the spare score by Gisburg (featuring guitarist G.E. Smith), and the mix remains front-centered, with dialogue that's generally clear, if not always entirely communicative.
