Running with Scissors

 (2006)

Running with Scissors Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Based on the personal memoirs of Augusten Burroughs, Running with Scissors is a wickedly funny, brave and moving tale of surviving a most unusual childhood. Augusten's (Joseph Cross) mother (Annette Bening) is a deluded aspiring post with bipolar disorder whose marriage to his dad (Alec Baldwin) is in ruins. Soon, she is seeing a very eccentric therapist named Dr. Finch (Brian Cox), while Augusten is left in the care of Finch's wackly family, including his tightly-wound daughter (Gwyneth Paltrow). Abandoned by his parents and adopted by the Finches, he finds a kindred spirit in youngest daughter Natalie (Even Rachel Wood) and motherly support from Finch's long suffering wife Agnes (Jill Clayburgh). Constantly recording the events of his life in his journals as a way to cope, Augusten finds himself avoiding school, learning about love from an older man (Joseph Fiennes), and making big decisions at the tender age of fifteen.

For more about Running with Scissors and the Running with Scissors Blu-ray release, see Running with Scissors Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Running with Scissors Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Sony's 2007 Blu-ray edition of Running with Scissors was among its early crop of releases on the then-fledgling format. It used MPEG-2 compression but was granted the expansive digital real estate of a BD-50. Mill Creek has reauthored the film using the AVC codec (while retaining the 1080p format), but Sony almost certainly provided them the same transfer. Despite the low average bitrate of 18.29 Mbps (attributable, no doubt, to the many "talking head" shots with relatively little movement in the frame), AVC encoding has offered small improvements in clarity and contrast, allowing the viewer to take in more of the chaotic decay in the Finch household and the grotesquerie that is Deidre Burroughs' life. The deep blacks noted in Casey's review remain, and I agree with his assessment that their overpowering of detail in certain scenes is intentional. It's not an accident that cinematographer Chrisopher Baffa had prior experience on films like The Prophecy and Phantoms. Much of the camerawork in Running with Scissors deliberately apes the style of a horror film.

Despite have less space to work with, the compressionist seems to have managed to fit Running with Scissors into the available space without generating artifacts.


Running with Scissors Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Previously provided as PCM 5.1, the film's soundtrack is now offered as DTS-HD MA 5.1, and it appears to be the same track as the Sony disc. The mix remains front-centered, with the sound editing achieving its effects by means of abrupt transitions, much like the film itself. For me, the single best thing about the film was the soundtrack's selection of pop tunes, mostly from the Sixties and Seventies, but that's a matter of personal taste.
