New York, New York Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

As with all recent MGM Blu-rays, there is no information about the source material. Scorsese notes in the documentary that he was unable to shoot the film in the Technicolor process he originally envisioned, because it was no longer available. It's unclear whether this accounts for the film's grainy texture, or whether a superior image could be harvested from existing sources, if MGM were able to devote more resources to the project than its current finances allow. The good news is that the grain in the image hasn't been sandblasted away by digital postprocessing, and, for the most part, the grain remains sufficiently under control that it doesn't interfere with the viewer's enjoyment.

More good news: The source material for NY, NY is in much better condition than many other MGM films from this period that I have reviewed recently. There is hardly anything in the way of visible dirt, scratches or other print damage. Even if a new image harvest were to be done in the future, it's unlikely that NY, NY has ever looked better in theatrical prints than it does on this Blu-ray. Outside the theater, I do know that the film has frequently looked worse, because prior home video formats lacked sufficient detail to resolve the elaborate imagery with which Scorsese and his collaborators packed the frame.

Colors in the 1080p, AVC-encoded presentation are rich and varied without oversaturation or blooming. Black levels are sufficiently good that the many night scenes are full of well-delineated detail. Indeed, the real triumph of this Blu-ray is to bring home the full extent of the stylized artificiality of the many elaborate sets and costumes designed by the creative team to realize Scorsese's vision of an old-style studio film in an era when that system no longer existed. As one watches Jimmy and Francine in a soundstage forest, or Jimmy missing a train that's an obvious fake, or the many New York street scenes that are clearly not real city streets, you spot the artifice just as surely as you know, e.g., while watching White Christmas that the actors most assuredly are not in Europe, Florida or Vermont. But you play along anyway. That's how movies used to work. Viewers were willing to "play along" with the film, instead of leaning back in their seats and insisting that every last detail be one hundred percent convincing.

Perhaps the most problematic sequence is the long, elaborate shot accompanying Francine's rendering of "But the World Goes Round", which provides a critical transition to a montage of her solo career. The shot is grainier than the rest of the film and also appears to be less stable, with a distinct pulsing in the image. However, this does not appear to be a flaw in the Blu-ray. As described by Kovacs in his short commentary, the shot involved elaborate rear projection, which would account for both the pulsing and the change in texture.


New York, New York Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The soundtrack is presented in DTS-HD MA 5.1, but the rear two channels might as well not be there. Consistent with his desire to mimic the look and sound of Forties and Fifties films, Scorsese has kept the sound entirely in the front, as if NY, NY were a mono film with a very wide front presence. There's a sense of spaciousness to the musical numbers, but no sense of stereo separation. The sound of the various jazz groups and orchestras has a pleasant tonality, and Liza Minnelli's vocals have been well recorded and reproduced. Dialogue is always clear and centered.
