Paths of Glory

 (1957)

Paths of Glory Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Safe in their picturesque chateau behind the front lines, the French General Staff passes down a direct order to Colonel Dax: take the Ant Hill at any cost. A blatant suicide mission, the attack is doomed to failure. Covering up their fatal blunder, the Generals order the arrest of three innocent soldiers, charging them with cowardice and mutiny. Dax, a lawyer in civilian life, rises to the men's defense but soon realizes that, unless he can prove that the Generals were to blame, nothing less than a miracle will save his clients from the firing squad.

For more about Paths of Glory and the Paths of Glory Blu-ray release, see Paths of Glory Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Paths of Glory Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Stanley Kubrick's Paths of Glory arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"Stanley Kubrick's technical assistant Leon Vitali supervised this new high-definition digital transfer, which was created on an HD Spirit 2K from a 35mm fine-grain master positive from UCLA film archivist Robert Gitt's collection. 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.

Telecine supervisor: Leon Vitali.
Telecine colorist: Jeff Chavez/Point 360, Los Angeles."

This is a very strong high-definition transfer, one that represents a dramatic upgrade over the SDVD release of Paths of Glory MGM released back in 1999. Fine object detail is very good, particularly during the daylight footage; clarity notably improved; and contrast levels carefully balanced, producing terrific results during the nighttime footage. The color-scheme is also impressive - there are a variety of rich blacks and gentle, natural looking grays and whites. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are not a serious issue of concern. Some mild noise corrections have been applied, but the film's grain structure is very much intact. There are no serious stability issues either. I also did not see any serious compression artifacts. Lastly, Criterion have performed a thorough cleanup, and as a result there are no annoying large scratches, cuts, debris, or stains. To sum it all up, this is yet another solid presentation of an important classic film, which certainly wasn't treated with the proper care when it appeared on SDVD. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Paths of Glory Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0 (Mono). For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

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

"The monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from Robert Gitt's 35mm monaural magnetic track. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated audio workstation."

The English LPCM 1.0 track is solid. Naturally, its dynamic amplitude is limited, but the sound conveys pleasing depth and fluidity. The dialog is clean, crisp, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow. Gerald Fried's prominent music score has has certainly benefited from the loseless treatment, particularly as far as the low frequencies are concerned (the brass section sounds fuller and better balanced; there are no sound distortions either). Lastly, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hiss, or dropouts to report in this review.
