Something Wild

 (1986)

Something Wild Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Charlie Driggs is a timid New York investment broker who lets himself be abducted during his lunch hour by an attractive nut named Lulu. While drunk, she drives him to a New Jersey hotel for some kinky sex and petty thievery, and later convinces him to accompany her to Pennsylvania and pose as her husband at her high school reunion. More misadventures ensue, and Charlie gradually finds himself loosening up and falling in love, but then the film makes a sudden left turn with the appearance of Ray, Lulu's real husband.

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

Something Wild Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jonathan Demme's Something Wild arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

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

"Supervised by director of photography Tak Fujimoto and approved by director Jonathan Demme, this new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from a 35mm interpositive struck from the original camera negative. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisors: Tak Fujimoto, Lee Kline.
Telecine colorist: Jow Gawler/Deluxe, New York."

The overall quality of the presentation is very good. The high-definition transfer conveys wonderful depth and fluidity and color reproduction is very pleasing. Clarity and contrast levels are also consistent. Fine object detail does not disappoint either; the close-ups and the larger panoramic scenes look good. This being said, I noticed various traces of mild sharpening that pop up during specific scenes. However, the image does not have that unique coarse look that typically accompanies heavy sharpening and excessive contrast boosting. Extremely mild edge-enhancement occasionally tries to creep in as well (see the first screencapture in our review). Generally speaking, film grain is very much intact - it is well resolved and consistent. Additionally, I did not see any heavy aliasing or banding to report in this review. There are no serious stability issues either. Lastly, I did not see any large damage marks, scratches, stains, or debris. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Something Wild Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

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

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

"The Dolby 2.0 surround track was mastered at 24-bit from the 35mm magnetic track. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated workstation."

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track is excellent. In fact, I was quite surprised to hear what a terrific range of nuanced dynamics it has. The diverse soundtrack, a mix of World Music and American Rock, has benefited greatly from the loseless treatment. The witty dialog is also exceptionally crisp and clean. For the record, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hissings, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
