The Tree of Life

 (2011)

The Tree of Life Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this absolutely must-own Blu-ray release

The impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950's following the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father. Jack finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith.

The Tree of Life Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

If Tree of Life's director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki (Children of Men) doesn't win the Academy Award next year for best cinematography, then something is seriously awry in Hollywood. Whatever you think about the content of the film, you can't say it isn't staggeringly beautiful from start to finish. It usually doesn't take me very long to take screenshots for these reviews, but with Tree of Life I was faced with a gorgeous, desktop wallpaper-worthy high definition image in nearly every frame. (As a testament, I've included 40 screengrabs, rather than our standard 20, in the screenshots section.) And other than the fact that I noticed two or three tiny white specks on the print over the course of nearly two and a half hours, I can't find any real fault with the 1080p/AVC-encoded, 1.85:1-framed picture Fox has assembled for this Blu-ray release. Shot predominately on 35mm, with some of the "evolution" scenes filmed using IMAX-ready 65mm cameras, the film retains it's natural grain structure and integrity here, with no visible evidence of DNR or edge enhancement. You may notice that grain is a bit heavier than it would be in a more glossy film, but this is a product of the way Tree of Life was shot--on location and almost entirely with natural lighting, which necessitates "faster" film stock. With this in mind, clarity is excellent. Fine detail is easily visible in the actors' faces, and the period clothing is wonderfully defined in closeups. Any softness seems due to the fact that the film was predominately shot using darting, sweeping Steadicam movements, which means focus isn't always precise. What impresses most is the rich, painterly color palette; everything looks realistic but amplified, poeticized, with great use of light and shadow and the balanced contrast to back it all up on Blu-ray. Black levels are deep without putting stress on shadow detail, and there are no clipped highlights or general overexposure. The encode is solid too, with no overt compression artifacts or other troubles. This will definitely be one of, if not the, best-looking releases of the year.


The Tree of Life Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

You know you're in for a true audio experience when a disclaimer pops up before the movie begins stating that the filmmakers suggest you should keep the volume loud. Malick has always used sound as a thematic signifier--especially in The Thin Red Line and The New World--and Tree of Life is no different, featuring a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track that's thoughtfully designed, a perfect balance of the powerful and the delicate. As you can imagine from a film that depicts the beginning of the cosmos, the end of the Earth, and the general power of nature by way of volcanic explosions and pounding waterfalls, the subwoofer gets plenty of chances to rumble and throb. But the track also excels in the realism of its quieter moments--the sound of waves and gulls squawking in the rear channels, wind rustling through curtains and leaves and tall grass, crickets see-sawing the night away. Each location has its own sense of ambience and acoustics. Throughout, voices are clear and easy to understand, both the interior narration and the dialogue between characters. And then, of course, there's the epic soundtrack, which features original music by Alexandre Desplat--who has most recently done scores for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and The King's Speech--along with nearly forty classical pieces, from piano interludes to full-blast operatic requiems. The film is wall-to-wall music, and it all sounds wonderful here-- dynamic, rich, and expressive. Follow the disclaimer's instructions and crank your receiver up a few notches past your usual listening levels; you'll definitely appreciate the additional volume.
