Taxi Driver Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Columbia Pictures logo looks kinda rough. Bummer. That's about all there is that's bad to say about Sony's breathtakingly gorgeous Blu-ray release of Taxi Driver. A recent recipient of a 4K restoration, Taxi Driver looks extraordinarily good, so good, in fact, that it's difficult to imagine the movie looking any better than this upon its initial theatrical release in 1976. That's the beauty of this restoration; the film looks as it's meant to look: it's occasionally a bit rough around the edges -- a few scenes appear soft, colors are slightly dulled, a bit of grain swirls around the image - - but the critical factor for this and most any Blu-ray release, really, is preserving the integrity of the image as it was and was meant to be seen. Sony's Blu-ray release does just that. As a general rule, clarity is astounding -- positively astounding -- and viewers both intimately familiar with Scorsese's film and Cinematographer Michael Chapman's handiwork or new to the picture will be awed at the way the image doesn't look like a new 2011 movie, but looks like a brand new 1976 release. The general film-like texture makes this a revelation, and the Blu-ray resolution, grain retention, and the like only add to the way the transfer so effortlessly brings out the finest available details, right down to ever-so-slight layers of dirt on Bickle's yellow taxi. Facial and clothing details are extraordinary, too, and shadow detail is top-notch; black levels are positively immaculate. As noted, colors aren't particularly vibrant, but they appear in such a way that they blend into the general context and broader look for which Scorsese's films strives. Still, the yellow cab, various shades of period clothing, and even the bluing on Bickle's .44 magnum revolver all look positively gorgeous within the context of the film's parameters. In short, this is a revelation, one of the finest transfers of a classic film ever to grace a Blu-ray disc. Sony continues to prove to be the cream of the crop when it comes to quality of Blu-ray transfers; Taxi Driver may be the studio's crowning achievement to date.


Taxi Driver Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Taxi Driver's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack is just as great as its 1080p video counterpart. While the precision of a brand-new track might be absent, Sony's 5.1 mix captures the very essence of Taxi Driver's varied soundtrack with ease. Besides, clarity and definition are top-shelf as they are; Bernard Herrmann's soundtrack has never enjoyed so much accuracy for home listening as it does here. Every Jazz-like note is smooth and every more mangled, heavy element is as it should be. Spacing is terrific; music plays primarily across the front, enjoying a robust presence and some surround sound support. Ambience is exceptional, too; whether the sounds of the city or the bustle of a campaign office, Taxi Driver delivers an accurate and noticeable but not overwhelming atmosphere that gives body and life to the overall presentation. Gunshots and a few heavier effects play as a bit crunchy and mushy, but better to leave such effects as they were meant to be head rather than give them a phony amped-up 2011 feel. Of course, dialogue is problem-free and center-focused. It probably won't get quite the attention that the video transfer will deservedly earn, but Sony's lossless soundtrack is no less impressive.
