Scum

 (1979)

Scum Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The film tells the story of a young offender named Carlin as he arrives at the institution, and his rise through violence and self-protection to the top of the inmates' pecking order, purely as a tool to survive.

For more about Scum and the Scum Blu-ray release, see Scum Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Ray Winstone, Mick Ford (I), Julian Firth, Phil Daniels, Philip Jackson, John Grillo
Director: Alan Clarke (I)

Scum Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Many Kino-Lorber releases get the "as is" treatment—with little-to-no significant cleanup work—but Scum arrives on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC- encoded transfer that's nearly pristine, remastered from the original 35mm negative in 2012 by Pinewood Studio's restoration team. They've done terrific work, removing scratches, spots, and bits of debris without compromising the integrity of the image or its inherent grain structure, which is untouched by digital noise reduction and edge enhancement. The picture looks warm and organic—like a film print, not some over-digitized bastardization—and the lone distractions are a few errant white specks missed in the cleaning pass. (Compared to a lot of Kino's recent Redemption Films-label releases—which are typically scratched and dotted throughout—Scum is a revelation.) Clarity seems true to source and drastically improved—if you've seen standard definition versions of the film—with cleaner lines and more finely resolved textures in faces, hair, and clothing. Color is balanced and consistent too, with good density/saturation and stable contrast. If only all of Kino's classic titles could look this good.


Scum Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two audio options on the disc, a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track and an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 mono mix. Since the film was originally mixed monaurally, purists will prefer the latter, but the default multi-channel remaster certainly isn't obtrusive. The expanded sound design is limited to some light ambience and effects in the rear speakers—footsteps, cafeteria clamor, etc.—and you rarely even notice it. Both mixes have a decent sense of clarity for a film of this age and genre, although there are a few scenes where it's obvious that the actors' voices have been ADR'd in. Still, dialogue is clear and understandable, and there are no major hisses, pops, or crackles. Sound plays a minimal role in Scum—you'll quickly notice that there's no score—so these two tracks gets high marks just for doing exactly what they need to do.The only shortcoming here is that Kino hasn't included any subtitle options, which would be helpful for following some of the more unusual anglo slang.
