Lord of the Flies Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Peter Brook's Lord of the Flies arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"Supervised by cameraman and editor Gerald Feil, this new digital transfer was created in 4K resolution on an ARRISCAN film scanner from a 35mm composite fine grain and a 35mm duplicate negative; the restoration was then performed in 2K resolution. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, and jitter were manually removed using using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Image Systems' Phoenix was used for small dirt, grain, noise reduction, and flicker.

Transfer supervisors: Gerald Feil, Lee Kline.
Colorist: Lee Kline/Criterion, New York."

The film's transition to Blu-ray is quite impressive. It has received a new new 4K high-definition transfer which at this point allows it look as good as it can. Detail and clarity are outstanding. Many of the close-ups, in particular, reveal small details that were previously impossible to see on the old DVD release of the film. Perhaps the most impressive improvements, however, are present during the nighttime footage where the balance between the blacks, whites and variety of grays is indeed outstanding. Image depth here is substantially improved (see screencapture #12). Grain is evenly and beautifully resolved throughout the entire film (see screencapture #12). There are no problematic sharpening corrections. Overall image stability is also excellent. It is also very easy to tell that a large amount of debris, scratches, and specks have been removed as best as possible with current digital tools. Finally, there are no serious transfer-specific anomalies to report in this review. To sum it all up, this is a wonderful presentation of Lord of the Flies which is likely to remain the definitive presentation of the film for years to come. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Lord of the Flies Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

It is a well known fact that there are portions of the dialog that had to be dubbed because the filming conditions were not ideal, but with this new lossless track one would have an incredibly difficult time telling that such work was done in the past. Depth, clarity, and balance are indeed very good. Overall dynamic intensity remains somewhat limited, but the lossless track is clearly not to be blamed. Also, there are no problematic audio dropouts, background hiss, or distortions fo report in this review.
