The Last Days of Disco Blu-ray offers decent video and superb audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

During the early 1980s as the disco era comes to a close, recent Hampshire College graduates Alice and Charlotte move to Manhattan to search for love and entertainment. By day, they toil as publishing-house assistants.

For more about The Last Days of Disco and the The Last Days of Disco Blu-ray release, see the The Last Days of Disco Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Chloë Sevigny, Kate Beckinsale, Chris Eigeman, Mackenzie Astin, Matt Keeslar, Jennifer Beals
Director: Whit Stillman

The Last Days of Disco Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Whit Stillman's The Last Days of Disco arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears on the leaflet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"Supervised by director Whit Stillman, this high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from a 35mm interpositive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Image Systems' DVNR was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisors: Maria Palazzola, Whit Stillman.
Colorist: Doug Drake/Universal Studios, Hollywood."

This is one of the harshest looking high-definition transfers I've seen from Criterion. While during close-ups detail is mostly adequate, sharpness levels are often elevated quite a bit. Occasionally, contrast levels are also too strong. Unsurprisingly, light to moderate edge-enhancement is quite easy to spot (see screencaptures #5 and 17). There are traces of light filtering as well. As a result, some of the footage from inside the big disco club look rather soft (see screencapture #9). Generally speaking, colors are stable, but do not appear as lush and natural as they should. The reds and blues seem to suffer the most, especially where there is plenty of light. Finally, there are light artifacts that are occasionally noticeable as well. All in all, while viewing the film some of the issues mentioned above could be easy to ignore, but the larger your screen is, the more likely it is that you will be distracted by them. Naturally, my advice to you is to find a way to rent this disc before you add it to your collection. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Last Days of Disco Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears on the leaflet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The original 5.1 surround soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from the original 35mm magnetic audio tracks. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated workstation."

The Last Days of Disco has a great retro soundtrack that benefits tremendously from the lossless track. The club sequences, in particular, sound great. Admittedly, the surrounds are not too active, but the sound has excellent depth and and good crispness that enhance the viewing experience quite well. The dialog is stable, clean, and easy to follow. Additionally, there are no distortions, pops, or cracks to report in this review.
