Requiem for a Dream Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Requiem for a Dream delivers a quality 1080p transfer framed inside a 1.85:1 window. The image appears slightly overblown in several scenes, with an unnatural sense of brightness to it that nevertheless seems to reflect the intended look of the film suitably well. Detail appears as above average but not absolutely striking; objects scattered about Mrs. Goldfarb's apartment, for instance, appear sharp and finely rendered both in the foreground in the more distant background areas as well. The most impressive details stem from the many extreme close-up shots in the film. Aronofsky often zooms in tight on skin, eyes, and lips, and the fine details -- particularly in chapped, dehydrated lips as seen later in the film -- offer startling clarity. Colors are finely rendered but don't pop off the screen, appearing as slightly washed out from time to time but never looking too terribly dull. There's minimal visible grain but there's little in the way of distracting artifacts. This Blu-ray release of Requiem for a Dream offers up a solid transfer but one that's not visually spectacular.


Requiem for a Dream Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Requiem for a Dream arrives on Blu-ray with a powerful DTS-HD MA 7.1 lossless soundtrack. The music as heard over the opening credits plays through every one of the speakers in the 7.1 configuration, a trend that holds through the course of the picture. The musical presentation enjoys excellent clarity and precision across the entire dynamic range; Clint Mansell's now-iconic score has never sounded better. The harsh strings that punctuate the madness and depravity of the film are duplicated here wonderfully. There are plenty of unnerving sound effects throughout, for instance those that accompany the drug preparation scenes or several hallucinations, including one revolving around a refrigerator with a mind of its own as heard in chapter 13. Bass isn't prevalent throughout, but when it arrives, it makes its presence felt. Other assorted sound effects, many far more subtle, permeate the soundstage as well. Whether visions of cupcakes and donuts flying around the soundstage or the gentle sounds of the Atlantic's rolling waves, the track handles a broad range of effects superbly. Dialogue delivery never falters, and even Keith David's booming voice is handled well. Requiem for a Dream relies heavily on its soundtrack to compliment the tone of the film, and this DTS-HD MA 7.1 offering is up to the task.
