Life During Wartime

 (2009)

Life During Wartime Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Separated from her incarcerated husband Bill, Trish is about to be married again. Bill is a pedophile, so Trish couldn't be more excited to have Harvey, a "normal" father figure for her two sons. But when Bill is released from prison and the boys finally meet their future stepdad, the family is forced to decide whether to forgive or to forget. Trish's sister, the virginal, angelic Joy, is also haunted by ghosts of lovers past. On leave from her degenerate husband, Allen, and her job at a New Jersey correctional facility, Joy unwittingly leaves behind a trail of shame and exposed secrets wherever she goes. In one of the film's most stylized sequences, the image of Joy walking the dark streets of Miami in her nightgown maintains her innocence against a backdrop of self-affliction and desire.

For more about Life During Wartime and the Life During Wartime Blu-ray release, see Life During Wartime Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Life During Wartime Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Todd Solondz's Life During Wartime arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"Director of photography Ed Lachman supervised and approved this new transfer, which took place in New York at Technicolor and Final Frame. The film was shot with the RED One Digital Camera at 4K resolution and the entire production was completed in a fully digital workflow. During the grading sessions, the original .r3d RED files were used and standard DPX files were rendered out from SCRATCH. The final color-corrected DPX files were also output to Rec. 709 high-definition color space for BD and DVD release."

RED digital colorist: Tim Stipan/Technicolor, New York.
Color correction supervisor: Ed Lachman.
Additional color correction: Joe Gawler."

Life During Wartime looks exceptional. There are selected sequences in the film that convey clarity and depth that are simply overwhelming. Che, which was also shot with the RED One Digital Camera, is the only release that comes close to matching this truly remarkable image quality, but there is a sense of balance here that Che lacks. Even the darker footage looks remarkably fluid -- there are no contrast fluctuations or sporadic image softness. What impresses the most, however, is the color reproduction. The variety of yellows, greens, and especially browns and blacks are simply superb. Some of the outdoor scenes convey a degree of crispness that is at times borderline distracting (see screencapture #8). Finally, there are absolutely no transfer related anomalies whatsoever. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Life During Wartime Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"This film features a fully digital soundtrack. The 5.1 surround audio was mastered at 24-bit from the original digital audio master using Pro Tools HD."

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is flawless. The dialog is exceptionally crisp and fluid, and there are absolutely no distortions whatsoever. The surround channels are not overly active, but when they are used, they are indeed very effective. Similarly, the bass rarely comes alive, but its presence is certainly felt. All in all, it is clear that the audio has been optimized as best as possible.
