Mystery Train

 (1989)

Mystery Train Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Aloof teenage Japanese tourists, a frazzled Italian widow, and a disgruntled British immigrant all converge in Memphis, the city of dreams. Mystery Train is a triptych of stories that pay playful tribute to the home of Stax Records, Sun Studio, Graceland, Carl Perkins, and, of course, the King himself, who presides over the film like a spirit.

For more about Mystery Train and the Mystery Train Blu-ray release, see Mystery Train Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Masatoshi Nagase, Youki Kudoh, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Steve Buscemi, Tom Noonan, Rick Aviles
Narrator: Tom Waits
Director: Jim Jarmusch

Mystery Train Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.77:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jim Jarmusch's Mystery Train arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"Supervised and approved by director Jim Jarmusch, this new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit HD from a 35mm interpositive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction." (Telecine supervisors: Jim Jarmusch, Lee Kline. Telecine colorist: Joe Gawler/Deluxe New York).

This is an excellent high-definition transfer. Fine object detail is outstanding, clarity excellent and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. The film's color-scheme also looks substantially stronger compared to the old R1 SDVD release MGM produced quite some time ago. Blues, greens, reds, yellows, browns, blacks and whites look lush yet natural (color bleeding and pixelating were major issues on the SDVD R1). The close-ups look outstanding, and so do the panoramic shots from downtown Memphis. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are not a serious issue of concern. I also did not see any traces of heavy noise reduction; the film's fine grain structure is fully intact. There are no serious stability issues to report in this review either. I only noticed some extremely mild background flicker very early into the film, when the two Japanese tourists arrive in Memphis, but I don't think that this is something that would even partially affect your viewing experience. Finally, I did not detect any disturbing scratches, cuts, debris, stains, or marks to report in this review. (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).


Mystery Train Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

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

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

"The monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from the 35mm magnetic tracks. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated audio workstation."

I don't have any major reservations with the English LPCM 1.0 track. Mystery Train is primarily a dialog-driven feature, and as far as I am concerned, the quality of the dialog is exceptionally strong. As expected, the dynamic amplitude of the English LPCM 1.0 track is rather limited. Finally, while viewing Mystery Train, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review.
