Snowtown Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Justin Kurzel's Snowtown arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Revolver Entertainment.

The presentation is very strong. Despite the fact that contrast is effectively toned down and natural light used as much as possible to give the film a documentary look, clarity is consistently pleasing. Close-ups also convey very good depth, while the larger panoramic shots during the final third of the film boast excellent fluidity (see screencapture #3). Color reproduction is also very convincing - there are a variety of cold blues, light browns, greens, and grays. There are no traces of problematic lab tinkering. Excluding one sequence where some light banding is present, there are no purely transfer specific anomalies to report in this review either. Lastly, there are no serious stability issues. To sum it all up, this is a very competent, practically flawless presentation of Snowtown that should impress videophiles. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Snowtown Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Revolver Entertainment have not provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Snowtown is complimented by an exceptionally strong ambient soundtrack that gets a tremendous boost from the lossless 5.1 track. I don't have a DVD release of this film to run some direct comparisons, but I must speculate that a number of sequences would not be as effective as they are with a lossy track. The depth and richness of the sound are truly outstanding. Surround activity is also very effective, though you should not expect to hear the type of movement and intensity that are often present on big-budget action productions. The dialog is crisp, clean, and stable. The lack of optional English subtitles, however, is somewhat disappointing because occasionally the thick accents could present challenges for some viewers.
