Picnic at Hanging Rock

 (1975)

Picnic at Hanging Rock Blu-ray comes close to perfection with top scores all around making it one of the best Blu-ray's ever

On a drowsy St. Valentine's Day in 1900, a party of girls from a strict boarding school in Australia goes on a day's outing to Hanging Rock, a geological outcropping not far from their school. Three of the girls and one of their teachers disappear into thin air. One of them is found a week or so later, but can remember almost nothing. The others are never found.

For more about Picnic at Hanging Rock and the Picnic at Hanging Rock Blu-ray release, see Picnic at Hanging Rock Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.

Starring: Rachel Roberts, Vivean Gray, Anne-Louise Lambert, Jacki Weaver, John Jarratt
Director: Peter Weir

Picnic at Hanging Rock Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Peter Weir's Picnic at Hanging Rock arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Second Sight.

Supervised by director Peter Weir, this new high-definition transfer looks excellent. Fine object detail is terrific, clarity very pleasing and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. The color-scheme is also striking - yellows, greens, blues, reds, browns, blacks and whites look warm and very natural. Edge-enhancement is never a serious issue of concern. Macroblocking, which plagued the old Criterion DVD release of Picnic at Hanging Rock, is also nowhere to be seen. There are no serious stability issues to report in this review either. I noticed a couple of tiny flecks popping up here and there, but did not see any large scratches, cuts, splices, or stains. Finally, some minor noise corrections have been performed, but the fine film grain has definitely been preserved. To sum it all up, I am incredibly pleased with Second Sight's treatment of Picnic at Hanging. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Picnic at Hanging Rock Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, English Dolby Digital 5.1, and English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Second Sight have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 tracks is excellent. The bass is not overly active but effective, the surround channels intelligently used, and the high-frequencies not overdone. The pan-flute solos, in particular, have never sounded this good - the sound is rich, full, and incredibly nuanced. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and very easy to follow. There are no serious pops, cracks, hissings, or dropouts to report in this review either.

I tested a few scenes with the English LPCM 2.0 track but was not overly impressed with it. While the dialog was unproblematic, the music was not as nuanced as it is when I listened to it with the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. Simply put, there is an entire set of dynamics which the LPCM 2.0 track cannot reproduce.
