The Swimmer Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.85:1 aspect ratio) presentation continues Grindhouse's exemplary work in the BD realm, with a gorgeous filmic offering of "The Swimmer." Free of debris, the viewing experience is rich with color, exposing deep blues found in numerous pools and the depths of Lancaster's eyes, while neighborhood greenery looks summery and true. Skintones are natural, and flesh fuels a crisp sense of fine detail, while locations are defined and easily surveyed. Grain is managed perfectly, retaining a cinematic touch that brings the image to life. Blacks are stable and exact. "The Swimmer" looks fresh and inviting on this disc, preserving the moods and mystery of the original cinematography.


The Swimmer Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The 1.0 DTS-HD MA sound mix is a respectful and crisp representation of the film's confluence of aural elements. Scoring (from the late Marvin Hamlisch) stands out as clean and rich with instrumentation, providing bold orchestral support to the picture without drowning out the on-screen action. Dialogue is sharp and expressive, clearly communicating emotions. Atmospherics are evocative, with pool activities and outdoor particulars serviced well, setting the mood. As with the visual experience, everything here is freshly prepared, without hiss and overt damage, delivering what was originally designed without distortion.
