The Lost Weekend

 (1945)

The Lost Weekend Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Don Birnam, long-time alcoholic, has been "on the wagon" for ten days and seems to be over the worst; but his craving has just become more insidious. Evading a country weekend planned by his brother Wick and girlfriend Helen, he begins a four-day bender. In flashbacks we see past events, all gone wrong because of the bottle. But this bout looks like being his last...one way or the other.

For more about The Lost Weekend and the The Lost Weekend Blu-ray release, see the The Lost Weekend Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Ray Milland, Jane Wyman, Phillip Terry, Howard Da Silva, Doris Dowling, Frank Faylen
Director: Billy Wilder

The Lost Weekend Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Billy Wilder's The Lost Weekend arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

In certain areas the presentation is even stronger than that of Billy Wilder's Double Indemnity. Close-ups convey terrific depth (see screencaptures #1 and 9), and when there is sufficient light clarity is excellent. Color grading does not disappoint either - the blacks are exceptionally rich and stable while the grays and whites look notably healthy. There are no traces of problematic lab corrections. Grain is prominent and well resolved (see screencaptures #9 and 13), and noise never affects its integrity. A few light scratches and flecks and some extremely light edge shimmer occasionally pop up, but there are no serious damage marks or frame transition issues to report in this review. Lastly, when projected the film has a pleasing fluid look. To sum it all up, this is yet another competent presentation of an important film from Eureka Entertainment that should make its fans very happy. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Lost Weekend Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

There are no serious technical issues with the lossless track to report in this review. The dialog is crisp, clean, and easy to follow, while Miklós Rózsa's excellent score (with a prominent role in the film) gets a strong boost. Also, there is actually a decent range of nuanced dynamics that further enhance the unusual atmosphere. For the record, there are no audio distortions of problematic dropouts to re port in this review.
