The City of Your Final Destination Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Don't let the opening moments of The City of Your Final Destination scare you off. After some pretty bad shimmer on an opening lithograph, we get a few moments of what looks like 8mm stock footage, with fuzzy detail and a wealth of grain. As director Ivory reveals in his short, scene-specific commentary included as a bonus, these incredibly grainy opening shots underneath the credits actually come from a 1953 documentary he shot about Venice. Why Venice, when the bulk of the film is set in Uruguay? Because reclusive author Gund's "one-hit wonder" novel was called The Gondola, and there is indeed a gondola in the film. Once the actual film gets underway, we're treated to a sharp and excellent AVC encode in 1080p and 1.78:1. City offers some wonderfully well saturated colors, especially in some of the opening scenes in Uruguay, where the brightly colored school bus Omar takes to Ocho Rios fairly bursts through the screen. While the Gund estate is somewhat darker, dealing mostly in tones of green (apt for its verdant jungle setting), the palette is always robust and well saturated, with accurate flesh tones and abundant detail. Best of all, despite large swaths of the film having a glut of leaves, there are no instances of shimmer or other artifacting.


The City of Your Final Destination Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

It's probably no surprise that this Merchant Ivory production is a dialogue heavy affair without a lot of opportunity for surround immersion. That said, it's something of a surprise that City's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track does indeed provide some nice moments of ambient surround activity, especially in the many outdoor scenes set at Ocho Rios. The buzzing of bees and gentle flutter of trees in the breeze waft through the surrounds, giving a remarkably lifelike representation of the actual environment. Drexler's score is also beautifully mixed into the surrounds, providing some beautiful, if subtle, immersion. Dialogue is crisp and clear and always easy to hear. While this is certainly not going to be a reference quality sound mix due to the limited sonic ambitions of this particular film, what's here is excellently recorded, mixed and reproduced.
