The People vs. Larry Flynt

 (1996)

The People vs. Larry Flynt Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

At the twilight of the sexual revolution in the U.S., a sex industry entrepreneur named Larry Flynt leveraged a small string of Ohio strip-clubs into the beginnings of a publishing empire. "Hustler" magazine's publisher, a grade-school dropout and Kentucky redneck, was nobody's hero, but circumstance would cast him as the era's last crusader. It was a role that brought Larry Flynt both ruin and glory. Flynt becomes the unlikely champion of the First Amendment when he takes his fight against the Rev. Jerry Falwell all the way to the Supreme Court.

For more about The People vs. Larry Flynt and the The People vs. Larry Flynt Blu-ray release, see the The People vs. Larry Flynt Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Woody Harrelson, Courtney Love, Edward Norton, James Cromwell, Crispin Glover, Brett Harrelson

The People vs. Larry Flynt Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

At this stage of Blu-ray's life, there's no excuse for cramming a 130-minute film onto a BD-25. If Sony had kept People vs. Larry, it would have used a BD-50, but smaller publishers like Image are willing to risk video quality to save a buck. In this case, Image seems to have gotten away with it. I watched the disc looking for signs of compression artifacts, but didn't see any. However, my screen is 72", and it's possible that projection at a larger size will reveal defects I didn't see.

The 1080p AVC-encoded image appeared detailed and film-like. The film's clever production and costume design use the awfulness of Seventies fashion and decor to accentuate the humbleness of Flynt's beginnings and the unabashed crassness with which he challenged Playboy's hegemony among skin mags. As Flynt became more successful, his taste didn't improve, but he had more to spend, and the sets become bigger and grander accordingly. The Blu-ray allows one to appreciate, to an extent that hasn't been possible since the film was in theaters, Patrizia von Brandenstein's production design, Arianne Phillips numerous costumes and the convincing make-up that ages the various characters (the team was led by Ben Nye). The fine detail in many of the hideous checked and striped polyester patterns is one of many indications of the image's quality.

Black levels are generally good, as is shadow detail, although there are very few scenes in low light, and this may be one reason why Image was able to get away with a BD-25. Flynt liked his world bright and colorful, and to maintain a consistent palette through the film, cinematographer Phillipe Rousselot managed to find ways to make even courtroom scenes appear other than dully monochromatic.


The People vs. Larry Flynt Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Though made in the era of discrete multi-channel surround, People vs. Larry does not have an active sound mix. Indeed, the film's sound design is almost old-fashioned in its focus on dialogue and its confinement of sound effects to the front soundstage. Even the sequence at the big Fourth of July party Larry throws at his Ohio mansion is sonically restrained, despite multiple opportunities to feature the sounds of fireworks, crowded rooms and a mini-orgy in a jacuzzi. The rare moments when the entire soundfield comes alive are musical, to emphasize (or, in some instances, take over entirely) a key emotional moment. The music may be a classical selection, a piece of underscoring by Thomas Newman, or a period-appropriate selection like Gary Wright's "Dream Weaver". There is nothing to fault in the DTS lossless track.
