Scenic Route Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Scenic Route was shot by cinematographer Sean O'Dea using both the Arri Alexa and Red Epic cameras. From the commentary, it appears that the Alexa was used for the desert sequences, which means that the Red Epic would have been used for scenes like Mitchell's extended flashback of an experience at a business conference. The completed film was color-corrected on a digital intermediate to emphasize the hot yellows and browns of the desert during the day and the chilly blues and blacks at night.

The image on Vertical Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray appears to be a perfect or near-perfect reproduction of the DI, as one would expect with such a digitally originated project. The image is clean, noiseless, sharp and detailed, except in those portions of the frame where flaring and deliberate overexposure have blown out detail on purpose, to accentuate the sensation of relentless desert sun. The blacks in the nighttime sky are so dark that they almost look artificial, like a digital effect (for which the Goetzes did not have the budget). In the non-desert scenes, the ordinary look provides a nice sense of contrast.

The 86-minute film is presented on a BD-25 with no extras other than trailers and a commentary. Compression artifacts were non-existent.


Scenic Route Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Scenic Route's lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 track is as effective for what is not there as for what is. The daytime scenes are almost silent, except for the sounds of whatever activities Mitchell and Carter are engaged in, and their conversation, which is always clearly rendered. The night scenes are dominated by the chilly desert wind, which sweeps through the surround system. Other than the rare occasion when another vehicle passes, no sounds of civilization are heard. A few appearances by a coyote are sonically memorable, because the rustling is so unusual. The fight scene has been punctuated with disturbingly organic sounds, as Mitchell and Carter damage each other as much as they possibly can.

The film's soundtrack was composed by Michael Einziger of the band Incubus. It's minimalist, mournful and spooky.
