Paris, Texas Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in director Wim Wenders' preferred aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Wim Wenders' Paris, Texas arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"Supervised and approved by director Wim Wenders, this new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from the original 35mm camera negative. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisors: Lee Kline, Wim Wenders.
Telecine colorists: Joe Gawler/Deluxe New York; Kerstin Kellner/CinePostproduction, Berlin."

Fine object detail is terrific, contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film, and clarity outstanding. The most impressive upgrade, however, is with the color-scheme. I've seen Paris, Texas more than a dozen times, and I don't recall ever seeing such incredibly vibrant colors. Many of the panoramic vistas are simply breathtakingly beautiful. Edge enhancement and macroblocking are not a serious issue of concern with this transfer. You won't have to worry about aliasing, ringing, or excessive denoising either. Paris, Texas has a natural and very filmic look that should please even the most demanding amongst film aficionados. Finally, there are absolutely no disturbing flecks, cuts, scratches, warps, dirt, or debris that I noticed while viewing the film. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free player in order to access its content).


Paris, Texas Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"Presented in a surround format, the soundtrack was remixed under the supervision of the director using the original audio stems. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD."

The DTS-HD Master Audio track Criterion have provided certainly does not disappoint. Ry Cooder's fantastic score sounds great - the guitar solos are richer, fuller and a lot more effective here. On the other hand, the dialog is remarkably crisp, clean and easy to follow. There are no balance issues to report. There are no annoying clicks, pops, cracks, or hiss that I noticed either.
