Two-Lane Blacktop

 (1971)

Two-Lane Blacktop Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The Driver and The Mechanic are two car freaks driving a 1955 Chevy throughout the southwestern U.S. looking for other cars to race. They are totally dedicated to The Car and converse with each other only when necessary. At a gas station, The Driver and The Mechanic, along with a girl who has ingratiated herself into their world, meet G.T.O., a middle-aged man who fabricates stories about his exploits. It is decided to have a race to Washington, D.C., where the winner will get the loser's car. Along the way, the race and the highway metaphorically depict the lives of these contestants as they struggle to their destination.

For more about Two-Lane Blacktop and the Two-Lane Blacktop Blu-ray release, see Two-Lane Blacktop Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: James Taylor, Warren Oates, Laurie Bird, Dennis Wilson, Harry Dean Stanton

Two-Lane Blacktop Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.36:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Monte Hellman's Two-Lane Blacktop arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

Some minor noise corrections have been performed. While some of them are rather easy to spot on a few of the screencaptures we have included with our review (see the girl's face in screencapture #17 and the edges on the blue shirt in screencapture #10), in motion they are hardly noticeable. In fact, the nighttime scenes convey very good depth and pleasing clarity, and detail does not appear compromised. During the daylight scenes, however, occasionally color reproduction appears somewhat weak. Contrast levels are stable. There are no large cuts, damage marks and warps, or serious stability issues to report in this review. All in all, considering the fact that the new high-definition transfer was supervised and approved by director Monte Hellman, I think it is fair to say this is the very best Two-Lane Blacktop has ever looked. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Two-Lane Blacktop Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, and English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 (music & effects track). For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

I chose to watch the film with the original mono track and was not disappointed. The lossless track has a very good dynamic amplitude that effectively opens up the film during key scenes. Screeching tires and roaring engines, in particular, get a strong boost. The dialog is also far clearer and easier to follow when compared to the dialog from the Criterion R1 DVD release of the film.

I tested only a couple of different scenes with the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. The dynamic levels are definitely elevated during the racing scenes, but surround activity is fairly modest.
