The Third Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

As mentioned above, if you are making a choice solely on video quality, there's little doubt that Criterion's 2008 release is better. But this StudioCanal's AVC encoded 1080p image (in 1.33:1) isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, if one had never seen the Criterion release, this version would probably be seen as mostly exemplary. While contrast is noticeably less well modulated here, and blacks especially don't bristle as they do on the Criterion release, sharpness is quite excellent. There may have been some minor digital noise reduction on this release, but there is still abundant grain noticeable, as is clearly evident on virtually all of the screen captures included in this review. The Criterion version has considerably less damage than this print, but, again, there's very little here to really complain about. If you don't feel like shelling out some major buckage to get the out of print Criterion version, don't feel like you're giving yourself short shrift with this release, because you're not.


The Third Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Third Man is presented by StudioCanal with a very good sounding lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track. I spot checked against the Criterion Blu-ray, and while there are some very subtle differences, my hunch is those must be traceable to the stems or print utilized for this release. There are some very slight volume fluctuations on this release which do not seem to plague the Criterion release, at least not as much, but aside from that, this is a crisp and clear audio presentation. Especially effective is the expressive Karas score, which doesn't sound brittle or overly bright. There is some noticeable compression on the extreme highs of this track, leading to a bit of boxiness, but for a 60 or so year old recording, this sounds quite admirable, if one is willing to tolerate minimal hiss and a narrow soundfield.
