The Lost City

 (2005)

The Lost City Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Andy Garcia stars and makes his directorial debut in a passionate and historical tribute to his native Cuba. Havana in 1958 is a place of pleasure for many, but others are not happy under the rule of dictator Fulgenico Batista. As the revolutionary forces of Fidel Castro and Ernesto "Che" Guevara prepare to move on the city, Fico Fellove (Garcia)-owner of the city's classiest music nightclub, El Tropico-struggles to hold together his family and the love of a woman (Inés Sastre). Observing all is The Writer (Bill Murray) an ex-patriot American who sees Fico being drawn into events as the revolution changes everything. Though Fico watches a culture vanish and a people transformed, it is his love of Cuban music that keeps his memories alive.

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

Director: Andy García
Writer: Guillermo Cabrera Infante

The Lost City Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 (slightly cropped from its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1), encoded with MPEG-2 and granted a 1080p transfer, The Lost City appears on Blu-Ray courtesy of Magnolia Pictures.

This was one of the distributor's earlier releases and while it is not disappointing it is certainly not an A-grade material either. The color-scheme is largely intact as the lush vistas from Havana's beaches are captured rather nicely – reds, yellows, blues, and greens are generally pleasing while the blacks appear solid enough (at least during the daylight scenes). There are some issues with the night-time scenes however. First of all the print does reveal a few tiny dust specks and oddly enough these are mostly obvious during the night-time scenes. Second, there is some notable inconsistency in the sharpness and detail that I must assume is an enhanced byproduct of the original print (The Lost City is a low-budget production). On the positive side during daylight scenes detail and clarity are at a satisfactory level. The rest of the basics are also intact and I did not detect any major issues that needed to be discussed here. To sum it all up Magnolia Pictures have provided a good transfer for The Lost City but I certainly would not place it next to some of their strongest efforts (The War Within, The World's Fastest Indian).


The Lost City Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There are three different audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English: PCM 5.1, English: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, and English: Dolby Digital 5.1. None of them, however, is particularly pleasing. I opted for the PCM 5.1 track (and did experiment with the DTS-HD Master track as well) and while the mix certainly gets the job done it is nowhere as potent and expansive as I hoped it would be given the spectacular soundtrack The Lost City boasts. The trumpet solos in particular are not as sharp and ringing as one would expect them to be on a high-def disc. The gunshots on the other hand (the sugarcane field scene) were quite loud pointing to the fact that balance here isn't as carefully addressed as it should have been. The dialog is very easy to follow and I certainly did not detect any pop-ups, hissing, or cracks. This being said, I did experiment with the DTS-HD Master 5.1 mix as well (I specifically focused on the opening dance scene where Fico's family is in El Tropico as well as the dreamy sequence at the very end with the great trumpet solo) and to be honest could not detect any major differences between the two. Optional English and Spanish subtitles are provided for the main feature (English subs were not provided for the SDVD release).
