The Image Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.82:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Radley Metzger's The Image arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Synapse Films.

This is the most impressive presentation of a classic erotic film that I have seen since Blu-ray was launched. I would argue that in certain areas it actually outdoes Criterion's terrific presentation of Nagisa Oshima's In the Realm of the Senses - and this says a lot, because the two films were shot under vastly different conditions. Very impressive!

Synapse Films have included a short note indicating that the high-definition transfer has been struck from the original 35 mm camera negative - and it clearly shows. Throughout the entire film detail is outstanding and clarity vastly improved when compared to the old R1 SDVD release of the film. Contrast levels are also a lot stronger, particularly during the daylight footage. What impresses the most, however, is the color reproduction. I took a couple of different screencaptures that I believe could give you an idea how dramatic the improvements are - see screencaptures #2 and 4 - but you have to see the film projected to really appreciate the high quality of the presentation. Edge-enhancement is never an issue of concern. There are no traces of heavy filtering either. As a result, the high-definition transfer has retained all of the organic qualities we expect to see from excellent Blu-ray releases. Finally, there are absolutely no stability issues and cuts, scratches, or debris plaguing the high-definition transfer. Indeed, this is a mighty impressive presentation of Radley Metzger's The Image. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


The Image Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 (there is also an isolated music and effects DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track). For the record, Synapse Films have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The audio treatment is as impressive as the video treatment. The DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track, the film's "original" audio track, has a surprisingly strong dynamic amplitude that enhances the film's retro psychedelic music score quite well. Additionally, the dialog has definitely been stabilized and various clicks, thumps, and hiss removed.
