We Need to Talk About Kevin Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Oscilloscope has given We Need to Talk About Kevin an impressive 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, framed in the film's original 2.35:1 aspect ratio. The image is untouched by noise reduction, edge enhancement, or excess filtering of any kind, and for good reason--there's absolutely no need for digital alterations. Shot on fine-grained anamorphic 35mm, the print often yields a striking amount of detail—anamorphic lenses are almost always produce a sharper picture than non-anamorphic glass—with closeups revealing extremely fine facial and clothing textures. The film's carefully considered color palette is reproduced perfectly here too; neutral tones are rich and dense, while the cherry-red that's in nearly every shot pops brightly off the screen. Contrast is punchy without looking artificial, and black levels are appropriately dense. There are two or three flashback scenes shot digitally, with a Canon 5D Mark II DSLR and these have a dreamy, almost hyper-real quality. Finally, the encode fits easily on a dual-layer disc; I didn't notice any overt compression-related issues. A fantastic-looking film, all around.


We Need to Talk About Kevin Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

We Need to Talk About Kevin features two audio options, a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track and an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo fold-down. Both mixes are clear and dynamically robust—big and full and crisp—but if you've got a surround sound system you'll definitely want to stick with the multi-channel offering. Kevin's pervasive mood of hysteria and unsettling family dread owes a lot to its carefully sculpted sound design, which uses disembodied voices and repeated sounds—like the click-click-click-spray of a lawn sprinkler—to illustrate Eva's fractured mental state. Key effects fill or move seamlessly through the rear speakers—from a pounding jackhammer and a chainsaw's roar, to pouring rain, zipping arrows, and running children—while Jonny Greenwood's dark score plinks away atonally. The use of music in the film is fantastic, not just Greenwood's cues—which set an immediately uneasy vibe—but also the numerous oldies pop tunes, like Buddy Holly's "Every Day," which are used in an ironic, contrapuntal way. Dialogue throughout is clean and easily understood, and there are optional English SDH subtitles if you need or want them.
