Sunset Boulevard

 (1950)

Sunset Boulevard Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Noir-comic classic about death and decay in Hollywood. Joe Gillis, a handsome but bankrupt screenwriter, is hired by washed-up silent screen star Norma Desmond to pen her a comeback star vehicle. Gillis has had his latest screenplay rejected by the studios, and, desperate, takes up Desmond's offer to write Salome for her. She demands that he stay with her while he writes, and soon he becomes a virtual prisoner of the actress and her gloomy house.

Sunset Boulevard Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sunset Boulevard rises on Blu-ray with a faithful and film-like 1080p, 1.37:1-framed transfer that retains the picture's original aspect ratio, placing vertical black bars on either side of the 1.78:1 high definition display. This is a gorgeous image and one of the finest catalogue titles on Blu-ray, particularly amongst those photographed in black-and-white. Grain remains over the image, and the transfer offers brilliant details across the board, from clothes to faces, from old camera equipment to textured exteriors. The image is generally very crisp and naturally sharp; there are certainly a few softer shots, but the sturdier and more well-defined moments dominate. Black levels are fabulous, whether dark suits or shadowy backgrounds. The print is meticulous, very clean and exact. Paramount's efforts are to be commended; this is a top-flight transfer and it most certainly does this classic and historically significant film the justice it deserves.


Sunset Boulevard Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Sunset Boulevard makes its Blu-ray debut with a minimalist yet true-to-srouce Dolby TrueHD Mono soundtrack. Paramount's audio presentation is largely dialogue-focused and plays the spoken word with clear syllables and grounded, front-center location. As for the other elements, range is obviously limited to practically nothing. The presentation hangs right in the middle of things, only presenting sound effects and music rather than immersing the soundstage in them. In this case, that's perfectly acceptable. The soundtrack's music can be a touch crunchy at times, lacking precise definition but replicating the original elements to satisfaction. Minor ambient and general sound effects both are presented with suitable clarity, such as the clack-clack-clack of an old movie projector as heard in an otherwise silent environment. To be sure there are some slightly muddled and unkempt sound elements, but generally this is a very good, classy presentation that should please purists and satisfy Blu-ray aficionados.
