The Artist Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Artist performs on Blu-ray via a handsome black-and-white 1080p transfer which retains the picture's original 1.33:1 aspect ratio, placing vertical black bars on either side of the 1.78:1 high definition display surface. This is a rich, steady, visually captivating sort of transfer that serves up impressive detailing and clarity throughout. Early shots inside a cinema reveal precise audience member facial shapes and details from the front row to the back, a fine example of the transfer's crispness and stability. Period clothing textures impress, as do Los Angeles exteriors and interiors. Fine facial details, right down to the last freckle, lip lines, makeup powders, and natural creases, are plainly revealed in every scene. The black-and-white photography remains balanced and true throughout, with strong, steady black levels that never overwhelm the darkest corners of the frame. The image can be a little soft around a few edges, and intermittent banding shows up to hinder a few backgrounds, but this is otherwise a resplendent Blu-ray transfer from Sony, one that shows the strengths of a good, firm black-and-white image presented lovingly and with care in high definition.


The Artist Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Artist speaks easy and carries a big DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. OK, so "speak" and "big" aren't quite right (but who can resist the play on words?); "reserved" is more like it. Though music enjoys an evident richness, nice front-side spacing, a slight but evident surround support element, and superb clarity, it never really extends much of a sonic muscle, playing things relatively light and easy at reference levels. This isn't a track to blow away audience members but rather subtly submerge them into the film's musical accompaniments. And to be sure, and despite an absence of raw volume, separation impresses as does clarity and precision throughout the entire range, from sharp highs to a heavy and accurate bottom. Yet the music tells the story sometimes with the same clarity of actor movement; it's a critical centerpiece that makes "silent" into "not-so-silent" and instead "musically critical." To discuss any further particulars of the soundtrack would be a disservice to the surprises the movie and several key scenes hold, but suffice it to say whatever -- if anything -- appears within this lossless body is handled with the expert care and attention to detail listeners have come to expect from Sony Blu-ray releases.
