I received the Studiocanal 4K package of The Deer Hunter today. I'll have to wait a few weeks before I can see the whole film, so have been looking at the scenes of the deer hunt, after the wedding. I project in 4K on a 133 inch screen, without UHD turned on. I no longer have the Universal blu-ray to compare with, but the 4K restored version seems to have a few problems in the few scenes I chose. Of course, because the cinematographer was Vilmos Zsigmond, the film has a really gritty, grainy, ´70's look. In comparison to Close Encounters however, the grain doesn't seem to be properly resolved during these scenes - the mist during the deer hunt is full of noise. It's much worse on the blu-ray, but not eliminated on the 4K disc. There are also odd registration issues: Axel, who gets left behind after taking a leak by the side of the road, has a pink halo around his head. Otherwise, the colours seem very punched up. I wonder if this was how it looked originally? I never saw the film theatrically and I don't have time this month to see the whole film in its entirety. It would be interesting to hear what any of you seasoned film buffs, who can project in 4K, think? The review over at blu-ray.com is of the blu-ray on a mid-size TV screen and I'll wager that the picture artefacts are more obvious on large screens. Otherwise the package itself seems impressive: 4 discs, including the 4K UHD and (region B-locked) blu-ray, both remastered and including a 5.1 soundtrack. There is an additional blu-ray with supplements carried over from the previous Studiocanal DVD, as well as the soundtrack on CD. The script that originally had nothing to do with the Vietnam War, called “The Man Who Came to Play” (written by Louis Garfinkle and Quinn K. Redeker), which was about Vegas and Russian Roulette, is included, plus a nice 60 page booklet and some black and white stills.
