Thirst Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Park Chan-wook's Thirst arrives on Blu-tay courtesy of British distributors Palisades Tartan.

This is an excellent transfer! Fine object detail is terrific, clarity very good and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. However, what really stands out here is the color-scheme. Blues, greens, browns, grays, blacks and whites are incredibly rich, giving the film a unique look that is as impressive as its story (the final ten or so minutes are absolutely stunning). Furthermore, the transfer is free of heavy edge-enhancement and macroblocking. I did not detect any disturbing aliasing either. When blown through a digital projector, Thirst looks simply beautiful. I noticed a few tiny dots very early into the film, but did not see any scratches or stains to report in this review. To sum it all up, I feel very comfortable stating that this is the best looking Blu-ray release I have seen from Palisades Tartan thus far. Bravo! (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free player in order to access its content).


Thirst Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Palisades Tartan have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.

The audio treatment is every bit as impressive as the video treatment. Though not too active, the bass is strong and powerful. The rear channels are used intelligently - there are more than a few very unique ambient effects that I noticed (for example, pay close attention to the scene where Sang-hyeon and Tae-ju confront each other on the rooftops). The high frequencies are not distorted. The dialog is crisp, clear and exceptionally easy to follow. Furthermore, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hiss to report in this review. There are no balance issues with Cho Young-ook's music soundtrack either. The English translation is also of exceptionally high quality.
