Naked Lunch Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The approved by director Cronenberg high-definition transfer has a lot in common with the one Italian distributors Eagle Pictures used for their Blu-ray release of Naked Lunch. The contrast settings and color reproduction, in particular, are virtually identical. The biggest advantage the Criterion release has is the substantially better compression, which has eliminated the edge shimmer present on the Italian release. Generally speaking, grain is also much better resolved. Brightness levels have been toned down a bit, but the difference isn't too obvious. However, the better saturated reds and browns, both very prominent colors throughout the film, give the Criterion release a richer, at times appropriately edgier look. During darker sequences some light noise still sneaks in, but it never becomes distracting. Some traces of extremely light sharpening, most likely inherited from the master that was used to produce the transfer, also remain. Lastly, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. Damage marks, flecks, scratches, and debris have also been removed as best as possible. To sum it all up, Criterion's Blu-ray release of Naked Lunch represents a solid upgrade in quality over the old R1 DVD release. It is also superior to the Italian release. However, there is still room for additional minor improvements. (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).


Naked Lunch Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio standard track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

I prefer the two-channel lossless track, not the 5.1 track present on the Italian release. Unsurprisingly, dynamic movement is far better balanced and, in my opinion, more natural. Depth and especially clarity are also more consistent. This becomes very obvious where Ornette Coleman and Howard Shore's jazzy score becomes prominent and after the dialog returns. There are no audio dropouts, pops, cracks, or distortions to report in this review.
