Traffic

 (2000)

Traffic Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A patchwork of stories about various factions of the drug trade, including dealers, abusers and the law enforcement officials who pursue them. Mexican policeman Javier Rodriguez works on and around the border with his close friend and fellow policeman Manolo Sanchez, under Mexico's number one crime fighter, General Salazar. Confronted with temptations of power and money, Javier resists them but finds himself--and Manolo--caught in a web of corruption that leads to an untenable situation. Back in the U.S., Ohio State Supreme Court Justice Robert Wakefield is named by the president as the new antidrug czar. Collecting information, the uncompromising and conservative Wakefield prepares to supervise the country's task forces and partner them with Mexico's. But, at home, he and his wife Barbara must deal with their increasingly drug-addicted teenage daughter Caroline. In San Diego, undercover DEA agents Montel Gordon and Ray Castro work overtime to help the U.S. government build its case against the infamous Obregon drug cartel. Their bust of midlevel drug trafficker Eduardo Ruiz pays off when their new prisoner cuts a deal to testify against wealthy drug baron Carlos Ayala, who lives in the upscale suburbs. Carlos is arrested, shocking his unknowing and pregnant wife Helena. Helena and her son are quickly threatened by her husband's associates and tailed by the DEA agents. Enlisting the aid of attorney Arnie Metzger. Helena vows to get Carlos out of jail and keep her children safe-- even if it means taking over her husband's business.

Traffic Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Traffic's image quality on its various home video releases has been a subject almost as convoluted as the film's storylines themselves. I start this analysis by saying up front I have only seen the first SD-DVD release (which is contained on this flipper disc), and the Criterion SD-DVD version. I have not seen the HD-DVD or the international Blu releases that have cropped up in recent years. The SD-DVD was marred by horrible contrast and what some people alleged were incorrect color schemes. What few people seemed to realize is that Soderbergh clearly delineated the three major stories in the film with a very clear separation of tones, from cool blues to warmer sepias and beiges. While this may be a subliminal effect, once you begin paying attention to it, it's unmistakable and really quite fascinating in its own regard. So, what are we really seeing in this latest, VC-1 encoded Blu in 1080p and a 1.85:1 aspect ratio? The first thing you will notice in this particular release is omnipresent grain, which I found absolutely in keeping with Soderbergh's quasi-verité approach to Traffic. The grain is certainly more noticeable in the dusty, grimy Mexican sequences, but it's there throughout the film and may trouble those who want their films CGI smooth all of the time. As far as the variegated color schemes go, they're remarkably well represented here, with a fine array on both the cool and warm sides of the color wheel. Detail is impressively sharp throughout the film, and a simple flip of the disc to the SD-DVD side will show what an improvement in sharpness and clarity is achieved in this latest Blu incarnation.


Traffic Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The good news is we're given a lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix for this Blu-ray release. The bad news, it's still a bit on the lackluster side, with too few immersive moments to really satisfy hardcore audiophiles and a general lack of low end, except in one or two sequences, to make it really come alive. Don't misunderstand what I'm saying, though, for what is here is perfectly fine, with dialogue nicely directional and for the most part easy to hear (you have to wade through some thick accents at times), and foley effects and underscore very well mixed into the proceedings. In one or two literally explosive sequences, we finally get the sort of "wow" factor that most high-def aficionados demand from their Blu experience. Bullets whip pan brilliantly, with a nice 'thunk' as they find their targets. For all of its occasional bombast, Traffic really eschews an overly violent ethos and remains solidly grounded as a dialogue heavy dramatic film, and for those purposes, this track does just fine.
