Tam Lin Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Tam Lin is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. Perhaps because this film had such a troubled history, with only minimal releases (and not very many in this form), the elements here are in generally very good shape, with only minor specks occasionally showing up. Colors seem to have faded just slightly, with flesh tones skewed minimally toward the brown side of the spectrum, but otherwise this is a solid and nicely detailed release, which is not to say that it's razor sharp. McDowall and his cinematographer Billy Williams intentionally filter quite a bit of the film to give a gauzy, soft, appropriately dreamlike ambience that frequently dabbles in diffused light and soft focus (on occasion with regard to some close-ups of Gardner, which may have been done as a courtesy). Despite this approach, fine detail is quite good, revealing lush textures on Gardner's outfits and the rich appointments of Mickey's palatial manse, though the color scheme here is unexpectedly dowdy some of the time. Contrast is generally quite strong, though the last section of the film, while intentionally murky, seems to have slightly under performing differentiation between light values, and low level noise creeps into just one or two dark, fog shrouded, shots. There's one kind of bizarre anomaly at around 1:23:00 where some major instability creeps in for just a couple of shots; it looks like telecine wobble or gate weave on steroids, but I have a feeling it may have more to do with problematic elements having been reassembled for this version. Once again, Olive's standard "hands off" approach means that while no restoration appears to have been done, there's also no problematic digital tweaking, either.


Tam Lin Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Tam Lin features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix which has just a few more pops and cracks than one might expect from a film of this vintage. Those anomalies occasionally distract from some of the quieter moments in the film, but the good news is for the most part dialogue and the rather haunting score (which combines songs by Pentangle, which sounds like a kind of Celtic Jefferson Airplane, and more traditionally Celtic underscore as well as more standard orchestral fare by Stanley Myers) sound fine. Aside from the relatively few pops and cracks, fidelity here is very good, and once the drugs set in, dynamic range is quite wide.
