One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

With a VC-1 encode and an aspect ratio of 1.85:1, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest delivers high-quality 1080p. The definition is by no means reference quality; however, the resolution is an enormous step up from the NTSC versions we have all been watching for the past 20 years, on DVD or when the networks show One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Textures on clothing and highlights or sheen on skin tones is especially improved compared to DVD versions. The definition is not as dramatic, but the overall impact of the film is stronger in 1080p. Supple grain is visible, especially in darker areas, although it appears that Warner has applied its token DNR. Blacks are inky and deep, showing good detail in grey areas and dark scenes. Likewise, light areas, such as the white uniforms of the inmates and staff, show strong brightness and contrast.

A major achievement for this BD release is its depth of picture. The outdoor shots are a good indicator of how the picture benefits from transfer to 1080p. Of course the most dramatic shots deliver the front-to-back definition of scenes involving people or objects that appear close in the foreground, giving way to a long distance view in the background. Rarely is this near versus far definition shown better than during the exercise breaks outside the asylum on the basketball court. The foliage and suburban landscaping go soft in the background but with much stronger resolution than NTSC versions. And Nicholson's facial expressions and dark leather jacket are paid off with the 1080p. Another good scene for depth is during the "fishing expedition" on the boat, when the camera pans back to reveal the boat far off shore. The visuals never rise to the level of "stunning" or "reference quality", but I found the picture to be something of a revelation for this classic.


One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The audio resolution, presented in Dolby Digital 5.1, does not showcase a significant improvement over the DVD version, never rising to the level of reference-quality BD. From the earliest notes of the scraggly, native American-inspired score, the sound is anchored across the front three channels. I would have preferred a high resolution mono mix to the DD 5.1. That said, dialog is resolved with good clarity and definition. Though surrounds and the LFE channel are not a major part of the audio track, only delivering ambient sound, the DD 5.1 is critical in a couple of the crowded scenes in the ward when the noises of inmates, microphoned speech, orchestral score and shouting must all be resolved. The Blu-ray manages to keep a certain amount of definition around each piece of the sonic landscape. Even the vinyl playback of classical recordings in Ratchet's ward sounds lush. But the noises are stuck to the speakers and do not image the way lossless mixes create a 3D soundstage.

Listen to the sequence during one of Nurse Ratched's therapy sessions when the dialog begins as soft mumbling and gradually crescendos to a point where the inmates are all shouting above each other, culminating in someone burning with a cigarette and screaming at the top of his lungs. The detail is actually palpable, despite the DD standard track. Each vocal is clearly audible and communicates excellent detail from the characters, though the voices collectively do not have the separation or air associated with quality BD audio. It essentially sounds like a very good DVD. Listen to the increasingly concerned and manipulative tone in Nurse Ratched's voice as the session spirals out of control. Another interesting scene to evaluate the sonics is the boat trip. It features a tremendous amount of noise from the wind and the boat's motor, as well as the water. None of this is resolved particularly well and hinders the dialog. Again, it sounds like a DVD. That's because DD 5.1 is DVD quality. It would be nice if Warner would at least make the effort to deliver something special, of reference quality.
