The Last Circus

 (2010)

The Last Circus Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

1937: Spain is in the midst of the brutal Spanish Civil War. A "Happy" circus clown is interrupted mid-performance and forcibly recruited by a militia. Still in his costume, he is handed a machete and led into battle against National soldiers, where he single handedly massacres an entire platoon. Fast forward to 1973, the tail end of the Franco regime.

For more about The Last Circus and the The Last Circus Blu-ray release, see the The Last Circus Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Carlos Areces, Carolina Bang, Antonio de la Torre, Manuel Tallafé, Sancho Gracia, Santiago Segura

The Last Circus Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Shot digitally and thoughtfully color graded, The Last Circus' picture quality is just as striking as the film itself, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded digital-to-digital transfer that's clean, vivid, and impressively sharp. You'll notice it in the screenshots, but it's just as apparent in motion—the image almost always exhibits a high level of clarity. For examples of the fine details on display, look no further than the skin texture visible beneath the two clowns' heavy make-up, or the grisly mutilations that turn their faces into ravaged grotesqueries. Elsewhere, you'll notice the intricacies of the costuming—the stitching and sequins, baubles and threading—and the general sharpness of the props and backgrounds. Color is more impressionistic than realistic, with vibrant golds and purples and reds, and highlights that tend to be creamy rather than white. The overall color cast shifts from scene to scene, sometimes warm and nostalgic-looking and occasionally icy cool. Contrast is enhanced, and while black levels are plenty deep, shadows overwhelm detail in certain scenes, although this is clearly intentional. Since the film was shot digitally there's no grain to contend with, and noise stays tamed with the exception of a few darker scenes. Likewise, I didn't spot any compression issues or encode quirks. I imagine this is exactly how the film is supposed to look.


The Last Circus Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

As usual for their foreign-language releases, Magnolia Home Entertainment has included two lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround tracks here— the original Spanish mix and a decent but in no way preferable English dub. Stick with the Spanish if you can help it. From the very first frames, you know this track is going to be engaging and carefully designed. Even before we see a picture we hear children's laughter emerging from the blackness, coming out of all speakers. Throughout, the full soundfield is utilized for effects—gunshots popping off between channels, cars zipping from left to right, and LFE-heavy explosions emanating from all sides—along with environment-establishing ambience like crickets, heavy rain, and other outdoorsy sounds. Roque Baños bombastic score is spread throughout all 5.1 speakers too, and the music sounds excellent—rich and dynamic. There are times when dialogue sounds a bit low in the mix—particularly during the more action-heavy scenes—but this is rarely an issue. Voices are usually clean and clear and, of course, you'll have subtitles to help you out anyway unless you're a native Spanish speaker.
