Lawrence of Arabia Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

To be sure, no rose-colored glasses are required to see the greatness in the look back at Lawrence of Arabia, and now through the high scrutiny lens of Blu-ray comes an image that today requires only the gift of sight to see in all of its filmic glory. Sony's meticulous 4K restoration is not just a treat, it's a revelation and perhaps the definitive Blu-ray catalogue release, if not the format's finest presentation. It's a beautiful picture, to say the least, every frame lovingly cared for and displayed on Blu-ray with the sort of attention to detail and, indeed, flawlessness that a film of this magnitude commands. Sony's picture dazzles from the opening shots of Lawrence speeding down very well-defined pavement and past sharp and accurate foliage. Detail remains exacting throughout the film; whether fine grains of sand, sweeping desert vistas, intricate clothing lines, or complex facial textures, there's never a frame in which the picture doesn't dazzle with its perfect film-like elements. Light grain remains over the image, and there's a natural sharpness, unsurpassed clarity, and startling accuracy that will impress even the most demanding viewer. The image is absolutely clean, showing no signs of wear and succumbing to no unwanted artifacts or digital tinkering. Colors are equally resplendent. There are many instances of the sandy earthen terrains contrasting with the bright blue sky overhead; both are picturesque in hue and the balance is beyond words. The image handles everything from white flowing robes to black costumes with equal precision. Gold trim, bright reds, lush natural greens, and all variety of colors simply dazzle in every scene. Black levels are perfect, as is shadow detail. Flesh tones never betray natural appearances. In short, this is everything the transfer needed to be. It's the sort of timeless image that transfixes and immerses, one that is so precise that viewers will become absolutely lost in the beauty of the film. Many will want to watch twice in succession, once for the transfer and once for the movie.


Lawrence of Arabia Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Lawrence of Arabia makes its long-anticipated Blu-ray debut with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack that's up to the task of sonically carrying the film and supporting its splendid visuals. The prologue music plays with superb clarity, excellent separation and distinctive notes, natural heft, effortless balance, and fine spacing, including a prominent but natural surround element. Music is certainly the sonic highlight throughout the film and a necessary ingredient in dramatically shaping the Lawrence of Arabia experience. Maurice Jarre's stunning score has never sounded better on a home video release; the level of pinpoint detail and the way the track naturally immerses the listening area is a true asset to the film. The presentation is every bit as rousing as it should be, and it's the perfect dynamic compliment to the faultless visuals. The track implements sound effects with ease and precision, too. Lawrence's bike hums down the roadway with excellent power, the effect naturally filling the stage and practically placing the listener on its seat. Aircraft move about the stage with efficiency, natural tone, seamless spacing, and perfect placement. There's a good power and rhythm to machine gun fire, a steady accuracy to single shots, and perhaps the most intense listening moment comes as horses stampede through the soundstage during an assault sequence in chapter 16. Ambient effects are handled quite well, including subtle environmental effects and more potent elements alike, the former things like light chatter in an encampment and the latter demonstrated by heavy, gusty wind as heard in chapter 17. Dialogue is perhaps a hair shallow at times but clarity is natural and placement remains firmly in the middle, save for a few instances of reverberation both light and heavy, the latter exemplified by a wonderfully cavernous echoing heard as Lawrence travels alone early in the film, his singing voice bouncing off various rock faces. This is a high quality vintage soundtrack that's the perfect compliment to a classic film and its first-class video transfer.
