In 1984, British newspaper reporter Arthur Stuart is investigating the career of 1970s glam rock star Brian Slade, who was heavily influenced in his early years by American rock singer Curt Wild, whose show was quite crazy for his time.

Starring: Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ewan McGregor, Christian Bale, Toni Collette, Eddie Izzard

Velvet Goldmine Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Velvet Goldmine is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate/Miramax with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. This hugely colorful film really pops nicely in this new high definition presentation, with a bold and bright palette which offers really excellent saturation and robustness. On the negative side, the overall look of the film is disappointingly soft a lot of the time, especially in midrange and far range shots, some of which are positively blurry (see Bale's face on screencap 5 for a good example). Grain can tend to approach digital noise levels in some of the darker sequences (and even in some of the brighter scenes, as you can see from some of the screencaps). Fine detail is generally well above average, especially in close-ups, though some of the film's concert sequences suffer from gauziness and inconsistent black levels. While the bulk of this transfer is artifact free, there is one recurrent issue with the many pinstripe suits that a number of the male character wear, with slight shimmer and aliasing disrupting the vertical lined patterns of the apparel. There's some very minor haloing in a couple of sequences, notably on backlit close-ups of faces.


Velvet Goldmine Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Velvet Goldmine's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix is a wonder to listen to, and it's no wonder that Haynes is inordinately proud of the soundtrack to his film (he has a great line in his commentary about how some may dismiss the film itself but no one can complain about the [insert expletive here] fine soundtrack). As mentioned above in the main body of the review, Velvet Goldmine is a virtually nonstop compendium of fantastic music, some of it actual "relics" from the glam rock era, and other, newer material that was written expressly for the film. McGregor did all of his own singing here (as he did in Moulin Rouge) and Meyers evidently did at least some of his own, but even putting aside their contributions, the slashing, burning, bass and drum heavy work of the bands involved means that Velvet Goldmine's lossless track gets a consistent workout, especially with regard to the lower end. There's excellent immersion throughout this track, obviously with the music, but with nice ambient crowd noises in the many concert scenes as well. Fidelity is spot on, clear and precise with beautiful reproduction through all frequencies. Dynamic range is actually surprisingly wide, including everything from relatively quiet dialogue scenes between Bale and Collette to the head banging music segments.
