It's a Disaster Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Oscilloscope brings It's A Disaster to Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that has its own peculiarities but seems absolutely true to source. What's unusual here is that while the film was shot digitally using the ever-popular Arri Alexa camera, director Todd Berger thought the crisp HD picture looked too clean—he mentions this in his commentary track—and decided to put a layer of film grain on top of the image in post- production. The sometimes heavy grain you see in the picture was very much an aesthetic choice, then, and not the result of camera noise or compression. And actually, the image does look very filmic; if you didn't know it was shot digitally, you'd have a hard time telling. Does the added grain detract from the sense of clarity? Maybe a little, but only if you're pixel-peeping screenshots. From a normal viewing distance, the picture looks excellent, with visible fine detail in hair and faces and clothing, especially in closeups. The color grading starts off realistically, with neutral skin tones and white balance, and as the "disaster" of the title ramps up, the light shifts towards a green-tinged warm cast, hinting at the poisonous air outside. Saturation, black levels, and contrast are all even-handed and unobtrusive, and there are no obvious compression/encode issues.


It's a Disaster Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two audio options on the disc, the default lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track and an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo mixdown. If you've got a capable home theater setup, the multichannel track is obviously the way to go, although, functionally, the two aren't that different. This is very much a dialogue driven film, with little cause for cross-speaker effects or aural theatrics. The sound design is cleverly subtle, though, slowly introducing sirens and whirring helicopters off in the distance behind the conversations of the oblivious characters. It's also worth noting that Berger doesn't use a score or any non-diegetic music; the classical pieces you hear throughout—from Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" to Bach's "Moonlight Sonata"—come from sources within the story. Buck and Lexi even do a guitar/glockenspiel duet of "House of the Rising Sun," which was picked—according to Berger's commentary—because the song is in the public domain. Overall, this is a low-key mix that does everything it needs to do well, with good clarity and balance throughout. The disc also includes optional English SDH subtitles.
