Samsara

 (2011)

Samsara Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this absolutely must-own Blu-ray release

Filmed over a period of five years in twenty-five countries on five continents, and shot on 70mm film, Samsara transports us to the varied worlds of sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial complexes, and natural wonders.

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

Samsara Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

This is your new high definition demo disc. It's as simple as that. Shot in 70mm, scanned at 8K, and mastered at 4K, Samsara outdoes even Baraka—it's spiritual and technological predecessor—with a 1080p/AVC-encoded Blu- ray presentation that's start-to-finish gorgeous. The screenshots really do speak for themselves; for clarity and color and sheer jaw-drop factor, this transfer is unparalleled, even among other 70mm productions. The large-format cinematography here has such dimensionality and presence that the image nearly passes for 3D. Stone busts seem to loom out of the frame, and the water-sculpted walls of a canyon recede with near-tangible depth, to give but two of many possible examples. Each and every frame is strikingly defined, revealing the finest textures of rock walls, human faces, and intricate clothing. In the mandala sequence, individual grains of sand can be made out, even in longer shots. Color is just as striking—dense, vivid, and anchored by deep blacks and perfect contrast. Besides two or three instances of extremely slight aliasing/moire on fine patterns—where the sharpness of the 70mm picture is effectively outresolving 1080p—there's nothing here whatsoever to mar the picture. Grain is extremely fine, there's no banding or errant compression artifacts, no digital noise reduction or unnecessary edge enhancement. Samsara looks pure, and as far as I'm concerned, it's now the film to beat when it comes to picture quality.


Samsara Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

One aspect of the film I neglected to mention in my review above is the emotive and propulsive score by multi-instrumentalist Michael Stearns, singer/composer Lisa Gerrard—who had both previously worked on Baraka—and Marcello De Francisci. The music borrows from numerous world traditions without being able to be pinned down, and it suits the film wonderfully. It also sounds great, premiering on Blu-ray with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track that reproduces the breathy flutes, ambient droning, and choral expressiveness with ease. While there are no words—no narration, no interviews, no conversation—this is definitely not a silent film. The mix is constantly alive with both the music and washes of natural—or manmade—sound, filling all channels with excellent directionality and immersion. Wind whipping off the tops of sand dunes. The deep LFE-assisted rumble of a volcanic eruption. The tiniest servo noises of professor Ishiguro's robot. The sounds of typing emerging from a sea of cubicles. Soldiers marching in rigid unison. Everything has tremendous clarity and presence, and I'd recommend listening to the film loud to get the full effect.
