The Grifters Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Grifters is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Echo Bridge Entertainment and Miramax Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. While this isn't the sharpest looking high definition presentation imaginable, it's still a considerable upgrade over the DVD, with decently saturated (if sometimes admittedly pallid) color, good fine detail and an obvious layer of natural looking grain (some of the opticals have a good deal more than a mere layer, as should be expected). The elements still reveal some weaknesses, with occasional density and emulsion issues that were also clearly visible on the previous DVD. In one regard, that should put those who fear overly aggressive digital tweaking at ease, since it's obvious no restoration work has been done on the title. But some might have wished for at least a minimal clean up here, as my hunch is this film could look at last marginally better than it does in this presentation. As it stands, The Grifters is well above average, but certainly far short of reference quality.


The Grifters Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Grifters features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix that ably supports the relatively modestly structured soundtrack of this film. Some of the more crowded scenes, like Lilly's jaunts at the racetrack and a couple of bar scenes with Roy, have decent enough depth, even if things are obviously fairly narrowly focused across a standard soundfield. Elmer Bernstein's music sounds great and well supported by this lossless track. Dialogue is also very cleanly presented. There's not a lot to write home about with regard to this mix, but there's also next to nothing to complain about, either.
