The Spy Who Came in from the Cold Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.67:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Martin Ritt's The Spy Who Came in from the Cold arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray release:

"The high-definition transfer was created on a Spirit DataCine from a 35mm composite fine-grain master positive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed suing MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Image Systems' DVNR was used for small dirt, grain, and noise management.

The original stereo soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from a 35mm optical soundtrack print. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated workstation.

Transfer supervisor: Maria Palazzola.
Colorist: Gregg Garvin/Modern VideoFilm, Los Angeles." The film looks wonderful in high-definition. Image depth is consistently pleasing, even during the big noirish sequences where light is restricted. Contrast levels are stable. Blacks and whites are well balanced, while the wide range of grays always look healthy. There are no traces of problematic degraining corrections. Edge-enhancement is also not an issue of concern. Overall image stability is excellent. When blown through a digital projector, the film remains tight around the edges and looks pleasingly crisp. Also, there are no large damage marks, cuts, stains, debris, or warps to report in this review. All in all, Criterion's Blu-ray release of The Spy Who Came in from the Cold delivers a solid upgrade in quality, which should make fans of the film very happy. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Spy Who Came in from the Cold Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track is very strong. There is an excellent range of nuanced dynamics and depth is very good. Despite the fact that there are only a few sequences where gunshots are heard, dynamic intensity if also excellent. The dialog is consistently crisp, stable, and very easy to follow. There are no pops, problematic background hiss, audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
