Repulsion

 (1965)

Repulsion Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Roman Polanski followed up his international breakthrough Knife in the Water with this controversial, chilling tale of psychosis, starring Catherine Deneuve as Carol, a fragile, frigid young beauty cracking up over the course of a terrifying weekend. Left alone by her vacationing sister in their London flat, Carol is haunted by specters real and imagined, and her insanity grows to a violent pitch. Thanks to its unforgettable attention to disturbing detail and Polanski’s unparalleled adeptness at turning claustrophobic space into an emotional minefield, Repulsion remains one of cinema’s most shocking psychological thrillers.

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

Starring: Catherine Deneuve, Ian Hendry, John Fraser, Patrick Wymark, Yvonne Furneaux, Renee Houston
Director: Roman Polanski

Repulsion Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

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

Approved by Roman Polanski, this new high-definition transfer has been created on a Spirit 2K Datacine, in 2K restoration, from the original 35mm negative, a 35mm composite fine-grain master positive, and a 35mm duplicate negative. Film scanning and photochemical compositing was done at Soho Images, London. Grover Crisp was the telecine supervisor while Scott Ostrowsky was the telecine colorist. Both are from Sony Pictures.

Simply put, Criterion's Blu-ray release outperforms every other release of Repulsion that I have seen. Even the old Anchor Bay UK SDVD, which was held in high regard by many, looks notably weak next to this new Criterion release. Contrast is excellent, clarity very impressive and detail simply fantastic. The color-scheme is also superb - blacks are deep and lush while whites are gentle and natural looking. Additionally, this is a pure, unfiltered print with plenty of healthy grain. Those of you with digital projectors will also be pleased to know that Repulsion looks notably stable. Finally, I did not detect any disturbing debris, specs, or debris to report in this review. To sum it all up, Criterion's Blu-ray release is nothing short of a revelation. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" disc. Therefore, unless you have a native Region-A or Region-Free player, you will not be able to access the disc's content).


Repulsion Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

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

The English mono track has been remastered at 24-bit from a 35mm optical soundtrack print. As a result, the dialog is crisp, clear and very easy to follow. The manner in which silence is treated throughout the film is also impressive. Furthermore, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report on this review. There are no balance issues either. Simply put, there is absolutely nothing to criticize here.
