Melancholia Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. I couldn't help but take screencaptures of every shot in the slow-motion opening prologue, which is easily one of the most visually striking sequences I saw in a film in 2011. (In this regard, Melancholia and Tree of Life once again go head-to- head.) I love the cinematography here. The elegant stillness of the slow-mo shots compared to the handheld jitteriness of the rest, the golden yellow color cast of Part One that gives way to appropriately somber blues in Part Two, the painterly tableaus and even the CGI shots of the rogue planet--it all looks stunning on Blu-ray, with a 1080p/AVC encode that's practically perfect. The film was shot digitally using Arri Alexa cameras and razor-sharp Zeiss prime lenses, and the level of clarity is consistently exceptional. Closeups, especially, are wonderfully crisp--facial details and clothing textures are finely resolved--and it's rare to see a soft or muddled-looking shot. (Since most of the film was shot handheld, focus does drift and shift, but that's another thing entirely.) The color grading is excellent too, and like I said before, the look of the film changes quite drastically between "Justine" and "Claire." In both sections, black levels are stable, contrast is tight without looking overcranked, and skin tones are natural. And while there's an expected level of source noise in some of the darker scenes--which is unavoidable--I didn't spot any compression problems or encode issues. I have no qualms giving this disc full marks.


Melancholia Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

As it should be clear by now, Melancholia isn't your typical end-of-the-world sci-fi movie, and accordingly, doesn't feature your usual explosions- a-plenty end-of-the-world sci-fi action movie sound design. This is a largely quiet, conversational film, and its DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track on Blu-ray reflects that with a mix that's mostly focused on clean, balanced dialogue. That's not to say this track never delivers any moments of aural bliss. The use of music in the film is sublime. The prelude to Wagner's opera Tristan und Isolde is featured prominently, and the orchestral arrangement--especially if you like to have the volume on your receiver set relatively high--sounds breathtakingly rich and clear. The music is often bled subtly into the rear speakers, but otherwise the surround channels stay fairly reserved, host only to low-level ambience and a few isolated effects. It might be low on sonic theatrics, but I think this mix works almost perfectly for the film. The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles, both of which appear in easy-to-read white lettering.
