Vertigo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Vertigo boasts an impressive 1080p/VC-1 encoded video transfer born of a challenging restoration and extremely problematic source materials. The results are terrific -- for the most part -- and there are only a few troubling shots that detract from the overall presentation, most of which involve muted blacks and fading present in the original negatives. Otherwise, there really isn't much room for water-into-wine improvement. Colors are quite striking, fleshtones are lifelike and convincing on the whole (barring a few brief mishaps), and contrast is dialed in with care, honoring Hitchcock and cinematographer Robert Burks' intentions. Detail is perhaps the most notable aspect of the image, though, with crisp edges, revealing textures, forgiving delineation and a fine, filmic layer of unobtrusive grain. Artifacts are in short supply too, as is any compression anomaly or digital distraction that might compromise the integrity of the presentation. Yes, the condition of Vertigo's source takes a small toll, particularly in the closing minutes of the film, but the restoration team's hard work ultimately overcomes and prevails.


Vertigo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

North by Northwest, Psycho and Vertigo are the only three films in the Alfred Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection afforded a 5.1 lossless mix, and it's arguably Vertigo that makes the most of the opportunity. Dialogue is clean, clear and perfectly intelligible and rarely has to compete with the soundscape, even when Bernard Herrmann's masterfully circular score -- full and enveloping as it can be -- quite literally presses in from all sides. LFE output and rear speaker activity are decisive but never overbearing, granting effects presence without amping up their punch or power. This is, after all, a 1958 thriller. Anything more would be detrimental to the tone and spirit of the film's original audio. The only issue I have, in fact, is that Universal didn't offer fans two lossless options: a 5.1 remix and the original mono track. The disc does include a decent two-channel DTS Mono mix, but it would have been nice to sample, compare and appreciate the best of both lossless worlds.
