The story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the best sushi chef in the world. A thoughtful and elegant meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection, chronicling Jiro's life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world and as a loving yet complicated father.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

For the sake of being discrete, director David Gelb shot much of his initial footage with a small DSLR, eventually graduating to the larger and more capable Red One camera once he'd established Jiro's trust. There is a slight but noticeable gap in picture quality between the two sources, with the DSLR material more subject to compression artifacts and low-light noise. You'll also notice that highlights frequently seem a bit blown out, as if the exposure should've been dialed down an f-stop or two, but otherwise, there are no real distractions here. Color is strictly realistic, and peaked highlights aside, the image looks great, with satisfyingly deep blacks and balanced skin tones. And although the shallow, open-apertured depth of field results in some occasional softness from misplaced focus, clarity is strong enough to make you appreciate the fact that you're watching the film in high definition—via a 1080p/AVC encode—and not on DVD. It looks to me like Magnolia's Blu-ray presentation is entirely faithful to source.


Jiro Dreams of Sushi Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The disc includes a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, and at risk of stating the obvious, yes, the entirety of the documentary is in Japanese. Since all of the audio was recorded on location, there are times when the voices can sound a bit thick or muddy, and you might notice a slight high-gain hiss on occasion, but none of this ever goes to the level of distraction or unintelligibility. For the most part, this mix does exactly what it needs to do. As you probably expect, most of the activity is constrained up front, but the rear channels do occasional get to put out some quiet ambience—like the lapping of ocean waves—and give some bleeding room to the musical cues. One of the highlights of the film is its elegant soundtrack selections, from Phillip Glass to Tchaikovsky to Bach, and it all sounds wonderful. The disc defaults to English subs, but those who might need or want them can also select English SDH or Spanish subtitle tracks.
