Seconds Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.75:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, John Frankenheimer's Seconds arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray release:

"This new digital transfer was created in 4K resolution on a SCANITY film scanner from the original camera negative; the restoration was then performed in 2K resolution. The colorist referenced a previous transfer supervised by Frankenheimer to generate this version. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Image Systems' Phoenix was used for small dirt, grain, and noise management.

Transfer supervisor: Maria Palazzola.
Colorist: Sheri Eisenberg/Colorworks, Culver City, CA."

Recently restored in 4K, Seconds looks stunning in high-definition. Detail and especially depth are simply outstanding. During close-ups one could easily see even extremely small facial details (see screencapture #5), while during larger shots clarity is enormously pleasing (see screencapture #2). Contrast levels remain stable throughout the entire film. Also, there is a wide range of beautiful and very natural grays that are perfectly balanced with the blacks and whites. (See screencapture #4). As it is always the case with high-quality 4K scans, there is an ultra-fine layer of beautifully resolved and evenly distributed grain. Unsurprisingly, the film has a terrific organic look. Lastly, there are no debris, scratches, dirt, or stains to report in in this review. To sum it all up, this is indeed an outstanding presentation of Seconds that should impress a lot of people. I personally think that it is on par with Criterion's presentation of Elia Kazan's On the Waterfront. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Seconds Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

It is easy for me to tell that the audio has been remastered - clarity and depth are excellent. Jerry Goldsmith's soundtrack is also very effective during a number of key sequences, which suggests to me that balance improvements have been made. The dialog is crisp, very clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow. There is no background hiss, pops, cracks, audio dropouts to distortions.
