The Elephant Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and grated a 1080p transfer, David Lynch's The Elephant Man arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Optimum Home Entertainment.

Even though this transfer is not as convincing as the ones Optimum Home Entertainment/Studio Canal introduced for Belle de jour and The Deer Hunter, it still represents a solid upgrade when compared to previous SDVD releases of The Elephant Man. Fine object detail and clarity are good but not consistent. For example, some of the darker scenes in the film tend to look a bit soft. Mild digital noise is also easy to spot. On the positive side, contrast levels appear relatively stable. Finally, I noticed a few minor flecks while watching the film, but I did not see any large cuts, dirt, or stains. All in all, even though there are a few minor issues with the transfer, I believe that it certainly allows one to experience David Lynch's film in an entirely new way. (Note: This is a Region A/B "locked" disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A, Region-B or Region-Free player in order to access its content. Please note that the disc's main menu could be set in one of the following languages: English, Spanish, Danish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian, Finnish, Swedish, or Japanese).


The Elephant Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are five audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, Spanish DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 and Italian DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. I opted for the English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track.

I don't have any reservations with the English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. The dialog is crisp, clear and very easy to follow. John Morris' terrific music score is also well balanced with it. Dynamically, the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 certainly does not rank as one of the best I have heard, but this is hardly surprising; surround activity is indeed rather limited. Finally, there are no disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review.

For the record, Optimum Home Entertainment have provided optional English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish and Japanese subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, the split the image frame and the black bar below it.
