Once Upon a Time in America Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

There already seems to be some (unfounded) controversy brewing over Once Upon a Time in America's AVC encoded 1080p image, in 1.78:1. I am probably one of the few people who saw the film theatrically (several times) in both its truncated and uncut versions, and it is my considered opinion that the film has never looked this good before. Overall there is a clarity and sharpness to this presentation which reveals whole new levels of fine detail. There is also a noticeable uptick in contrast and especially black values, at least in some scenes. Compare the opening moments of this Blu-ray with any previous home video version and the differences are striking. Not only are colors more beautifully saturated, black levels in the shadowy apartment reveal the glint of pearls around Noodles' moll's neck and other details which simply weren't readily visible in earlier incarnations. There are some niggling complaints which I'm sure some people will obsess over, but they are all endemic to the source material. Seemingly inexplicably, some shots are fuzzy and soft (almost always medium range shots, which argues toward the culprit being a lens), as in the medium shot of Noodles standing on a rural road as two bicyclists pedal by. Also some of the darker scenes are indeed murky, with some milky blacks, but again I'm firmly convinced these are inherent to the source material and not a result of any tinkering in the Blu-ray transfer. Some people have expressed concern over the film's length and the fact that it's "stuffed" onto one BD-50. Streaming rates hovered around 15-16 Mbps, certainly not incredibly robust, but also nothing to be very alarmed about. There really aren't many compression artifacts here of any real import.


Once Upon a Time in America Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Once Upon a Time in America is provided with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix that some viewers may find less than involving, but it accurately recreates the theatrical experience without "faking" a surround scenario that the film never had to begin with. Immersion here is a fleeting circumstance, and even sound effects like the rat-a-tat-tat of machine guns will often erupt solely from the front channels. The best thing about this track is the excellent fidelity, which supports one of the most glorious scores in 20th century film, yet another masterpiece by Leone's frequent collaborator Ennio Morricone. Use of source cues (including the intentionally ironic "God Bless America," sung by Kate Smith, as well as the old standard "Yesterdays") is also very well mixed into the soundfield. There's very good to excellent dynamic range here, and no dropouts or other damage to report. Perhaps not as bombastic as some listeners might expect, but still a decent and involving soundtrack that sports excellent fidelity across all frequencies.
