Mildred Pierce

 (TV) (2011)

Mildred Pierce Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Glendale, California, 1931: Mildred Pierce, a young mother with a talent for baking, is left a "grass widow" after throwing her husband, Bert, out of the house. Forced to hunt for work to support herself and her two young daughters, 11-year-old Veda and seven-year-old Ray, Mildred visits an employment agency, only to encounter job opportunities she feels are beneath her. Amidst her job search, she receives dating advice from her friend and neighbor, Lucy Gessler, and begins an unexpected affair with an ex-business partner of her husband's, Wally Burgan. When Mildred receives a call from the agency regarding an opening as a housekeeper to a wealthy socialite, she reluctantly agrees to meet with her. After cutting the acerbic interview short, Mildred seeks refuge at a local diner, Cristofor's Café, where fate, and a waitress named Ida, will play a role in shaping her future.

Mildred Pierce Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Shot on 16mm, Mildred Pierce isn't designed to turn heads, at least not in high definition. Don't get me wrong: Edward Lachman's Emmy-nominated photography and yellowed newspaper palette are lovely, awash with evocative light and battered Depression-era hues. But neither one results in the most striking 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer HBO has produced. Still, all is precisely as it should be, and well within the bounds of Haynes and Lachman's period aesthetic and intentions. Detail isn't razor sharp, far from it, and fine textures come and go, seemingly as they please. But the image itself isn't at any disadvantage. Edges are clean and as refined as possible, the miniseries' moderate veneer of grain is intact, aliasing and debilitating ringing are nowhere to be found (although some halos creep in), and delineation is quite good. Black levels are nice and deep as well, skintones are warm but lifelike, and contrast and color saturation are both commendable and consistent. Yes, grain spikes now and again, detail in low-lit interiors wavers, and fleeting compression artifacts are visible on a scant few occasions. But so long as you know what a miniseries shot on 16mm is bound to look like, and as long as you can appreciate the artistic merit of Haynes and Lachman's visuals, HBO's video presentation shouldn't disappoint. Set your expectations accordingly.


Mildred Pierce Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The quality of HBO's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track isn't immediately apparent either. But, given some time, its excellence becomes evident. Dialogue is intelligible, perfectly prioritized and wonderfully grounded in Haynes' Great Depression soundscape. Voices fill believable spaces, be it a small sitting room, a crowded restaurant or a busy street corner, and ambience and interior acoustics are spot on. No pomp, no circumstance. Reserved as they can be, the rear speakers indulge in a variety of tiny touches and faint flourishes, all to the benefit of the already immersive soundfield. And while the LFE channel doesn't make its presence known very often, it still subtly and tactfully supports a number of scenes, lending weight and heft when called upon. And then there's Carter Burwell's score; easily the most engaging element in the mix. Restrained, almost hesitant at times, it doesn't chase after melodramatic pursuits, presiding over the soundstage with an elegance and effortlessness that shouldn't be overlooked. Mildred Pierce's lossless audio mix doesn't deliver the most arresting sonics you'll ever hear, but considering the tone and tenor of the material, it holds its own.
