On the Road

 (2012)

On the Road Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Brazilian director Walter Salles helms this adaptation of the iconic novel by Jack Kerouac that defined the Beat Generation. Sam Riley stars as Kerouac's self-styled protagonist, down-and-out intellectual Sal Paradise, who takes to the backroads of America with his free-spirited friend Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund) in a frantic odyssey fuelled by jazz, poetry and drugs in search of the 'it' at the heart of life. Viggo Mortensen, Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst and Amy Adams co-star.

For more about On the Road and the On the Road Blu-ray release, see On the Road Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Kristen Stewart, Sam Riley, Amy Adams, Kirsten Dunst, Garrett Hedlund, Terrence Howard

On the Road Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

On the Road finds Walter Salles once again working with The Motorcycle Diaries' cinematographer, Eric Gautier, who shot the film beautifully on 35mm. (This movie just wouldn't've have felt right shot digitally. I'd even argue that 16mm might've been an even better choice.) MPI's Blu-ray release seems mostly true to source—no obvious noise reduction or edge enhancement here—though the image does occasionally seem to have a slightly mushy look that might suggest compression and/or a low bit-rate. Granted, from a normal viewing distance you'd never notice this; you really have to pixel peep to make out any compression artifacts. (Look carefully at some of the driving scenes in heavy snow—they're there.) The film's grain structure is quite pronounced, which also contributes to some of the softness, but overall, clarity is still great, with fine skin and clothing textures visible at least in closeups, if not always in longer shots. Color—so important to the film's mood—is balanced nicely too, from the sun soaked desert-scapes to the cold blues of a drive through a blizzard. Contrast is consistent, the print is clean, and there are no major distractions to be found.


On the Road Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The disc includes two audio options, the default lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track and an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo mix-down. Both are fine, but for our purposes we'll focus on the multi-channel mix, which is well-designed and has a great sense of clarity and presence. The rear speakers are utilized in just about every scene. The hum of insects and the busy hands of workers out in a cotton field; the rush of a turbulent river; the clamor in jazz clubs; the flat hum of car tires zipping down the road—it's all lively and engaging. The real draw here, audio-wise, though, is the music, both the score by Babel and Brokeback Mountain composer Gustavo Santaolalla—gamers might know him from his lonely guitar motif for The Last of Us—and the near-constant presence of jazz flowing through the background of the film. (And sometimes in the foreground, like when Dean and Sal go see Slim Gaillard—played by Coati Mundi—perform his scat-jive hit "Yip Roc Heresy," which uses the names of Lebanese food dishes as nonsense words.) The ambience and music come together to form a rich soundscape, and dialogue cuts through it cleanly, balanced perfectly in the mix. You'll also find optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles on the disc, which appear in bright yellow lettering both inside and outside the 2.40:1 frame.
