Slacker

 (1991)

Slacker Blu-ray delivers great video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A day in the life of various misfit twenty-somethings in Austin, Texas. Told in a series of short vignettes, highlights include a UFO buff who insists that the U.S. has been on the moon since the 1950s, a woman with a glass slide purportedly of Madonna's pap smear, and an old anarchist who sympathetically shares his philosophy of life with a robber.

For more about Slacker and the Slacker Blu-ray release, see Slacker Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Richard Linklater, Rudy Basquez, Jean Caffeine, Jan Hockey, Stephan Hockey
Director: Richard Linklater

Slacker Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Richard Linklater's Slacker arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criteiron.

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

"Supervised by director Richard Linklater and director of photography Lee Daniel, this high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit DataCine from a 16mm interpositive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, 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 reduction.

Transfer supervisors: Lee Daniel, Lee Kline, Richard Linklater.
Colorist: Joe Gawler/Technicolor, New York."

Excluding some light banding that I noticed after Linklater exits the taxi, the presentation is indeed quite good. The film looks appropriately raw - depth and clarity are very good despite various minor fluctuations, while colors remain stable. Light noise is visible throughout the entire film, but its presence never becomes overly distracting. Edge-enhancement is not a serious issue of concern. Overall image stability is good. When projected, the film remains tight around the edges of the frame and depth never suffers. Lastly, there are no large damage marks, cuts, debris, or stains. However, there are a few tiny white flecks that occasionally pop up here and there. To sum it all up, there is definitely some room for improvement, but the current presentation is indeed quite good. (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).


Slacker Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Dynamic intensity is very limited. However, considering how and under what conditions Slacker was shot, this should not be surprising. This said, the conversations are very crisp, stable, and easy to follow. There is no background hiss, pops, cracks, or other general stability issues to report in this review.
