To the Wonder Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Whatever your thoughts on the film's other merits, you can't deny To the Wonder's dazzling beauty, shot with the same floaty, ethereal camerawork that graced The Tree of Life. This is cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki's third film with Malick—his first was The New World—and they've definitely established an aesthetic together, defined by natural lighting, deep depth of field, and swooping Steadicam movements that suggest some ghostly third party observing the ongoing events. Somehow, the image has both a documentary realism and a near-spiritual quality. No surprise, the film looks fantastic on Blu-ray, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's true to source, free from distractions, and lovely to watch. Clarity is excellent throughout, and color is accurately expressed, from the warm glow of Malick's characteristically backlit golden hour shots, to the morose grays of a snow on the Oklahoma plains. Filmed primarily on 35mm, the picture is fine-grained and untouched by digital noise reduction or any other kinds of unnecessary filtering. A few other formats were selectively used too. The scenes with Rachel McAdams' character were actually shot on 65mm—in a great interview with American Cinematographer, Lubezki claims this was to express "stability and a kind of hyper-reality"—and there are two digitally-shot scenes, one utilizing sleek nighttime Paris footage from the Red camera, and a flashback made with a toy Japanese camera that creates a degraded-but-nostalgic look.


To the Wonder Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

If you have the Blu-ray editions of The Tree of Life, The New World, or The Thin Red Line, you'll be familiar with the intertitle that Malick splashes on the screen before his (recent) films begin, recommending that viewers turn the volume up loud for the best experience. The suggestion is well worth taking. Sound design is clearly important to Malick, and To the Wonder's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track does indeed sound terrific with your receiver set a few notches higher than usual. I was a bit put-off at first that Magnolia's Blu-ray doesn't include the 7.1 mix that was featured in the U.K. release, but there's nothing lacking in this 5.1 track. From start to finish, it's expansive and dynamic, clear and enveloping. The rat-a-tat clatter of a train on its tracks. The deep tolling of bells. The rumble of worksite bulldozers. The quiet hush of a room with the windows open. The effects and ambience are involving and oh-so-carefully mixed. Behind this is the film's ever evolving, mood-setting soundtrack, which features an impressionistic score from 26-year-old composer Hanan Townshend, as well as classical pieces from Tchaikovsky and Haydn, Górecki and Wagner. The music is a wonder itself—lively, room-filling, and rich. Drifting in and out of all this are the film's small snatches of dialogue and voice-over narration, which are clear and understandable when they're supposed to be. The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
