The Hudsucker Proxy

 (1994)

The Hudsucker Proxy Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

When the head of a large corporation dies, the Chairman installs a mailroom clerk as CEO so that he and the Board of Directors can become rich by shorting the stock. But the unassuming pawn takes his new position seriously and steadfastly pursues his own ideas, which only increase the company's worth.

For more about The Hudsucker Proxy and the The Hudsucker Proxy Blu-ray release, see the The Hudsucker Proxy Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Tim Robbins, Paul Newman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Charles Durning, John Mahoney, Jim True-Frost
Directors: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen

The Hudsucker Proxy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

WAC's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray accurately reproduces Gassner's design and Deakins' delicate lighting, which favors a palette of pastels, light grays and browns, and delicate earth tones that bestow a storybook quality on Hudsucker's vision of New York. (Primary colors are reserved for Norville's invention.) Busy though this city may be, it always looks pristine, even in the machinery of the clock tower at the top of the Hudsucker Building. Detail is very good, which is important for appreciating the exaggerated period costumes and hair styles, and black levels are solid. The grain texture is fine and film-like. Without extras or multiple language tracks, the 111-minute film has compressed onto a BD-25 without obvious artifacts (although I would have preferred a higher bitrate). My only real criticism is that contrast is slightly understated, but better that than the opposite.


The Hudsucker Proxy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The announcement from WAC that Hudsucker would be released with a DTS-HD MA 2.0 track prompted comment. Surely the film had been released in 5.1? While I have not been able to find a definitive answer, it should be noted that the film was released less than a year after the debut of DTS in theaters and two years after the formal introduction of Dolby Digital. Discrete 5.1 soundtracks were far from standard when Hudsucker hit the screen in March 1994, and the logo at the film's end is the "spectral recording" version used for Dolby Stereo soundtracks. When Warner released the film on DVD in 1999, it provided a stereo track—and as one of the major proponents of the DVD format, Warner was generally reliable about including the best available audio format.

The Blu-ray's lossless 2.0 soundtrack nicely reproduces the film's lighthearted mix, which is so playful that it helps transform even Waring Hudsucker's extended suicide into a comedy sketch. The eclectic score mixes original compositions by the Coens' regular composer, Carter Burwell, with selections from Duke Ellington, Georges Bizet and Aram Khachaturyan, among others. Many of the sound effects are as exaggerated as the vocal performances. When played through a surround decoder, the stereo track images effectively and provides an immersive sense of presence through the rear speakers, while the dialogue remains clearly in front. If one listens to the track instead of dwelling on the stats, it's an enjoyable experience.
