The Hustler Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Hustler looks absolutely gorgeous on Blu-ray courtesy of an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.34:1. The film's special edition DVD from a few years ago looked pretty spectacular itself, and that same sharpness and clarity is only increased on this new release. There is virtually no damage, save for some very, very minor issues, on the source elements and the richness of the blacks is really amazing at times. Contrast is exceptional, and fine detail is completely intact with a very natural looking grain structure. Fox has done itself proud once again with this release. Rossen's insistence to film The Hustler on location pays off incredibly well, and the grimy aspect of the city and the pool halls is virtually palpable on this new release. Shadow detail is also quite remarkable at times, bringing new dimension into the murky scenes during the showdown segments. This film won a well deserved Oscar for its black and white cinematography, and The Hustler's gorgeously gritty look is fully on display on this new Blu-ray.


The Hustler Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Some may accuse me of being a little churlish with my score of The Hustler's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix, but the fact is the limitations of the source stems simply can't be overcome. The boxiness of the sound is apparent from Alfred Newman's iconic 20th Century Fox fanfare on, and in fact the lossless audio only seems to highlight the narrow, tinny sound that was readily apparent on previous home video releases of The Hustler. OK, that's the bad news. The good news is, if you can get past that unappealing processed sound, Kenyon Hopkins' evocative score has never sounded better, and the 5.1 repurposing is really rather artful, with well positioned environmental effects and excellent, if not overwhelming, immersion. Dialogue is crisp and clear and the overall mix is very pleasing. The original mono mix of the film, delivered in Dolby Digital 2.0, is also available.
