The Boys from Brazil is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Fans of Shout! and some of its imprints may know the label has struck a deal with ITV to release some of its catalog, and The Boys from Brazil is part of that haul. Though the British ITV Blu-ray is now several years old, a cursory comparison of the screenshots included with Svet Atanasov's review of that release seems to suggest this is either identical, or nearly identical. I'm perhaps slightly more pleased with the overall look of the transfer than Svet was. Elements are in surprisingly good shape, with hardly even minor issues to contend with. Colors are generally lustrous and nicely saturated, and as Svet pointed out, the grain field is natural and organic looking. There are slight discrepancies in clarity and grain structure, notably in a number of exterior shots toward the end of the film when Lieberman is tooling around in what looks like an old red Datsun. This retains the somewhat softer look of the film's theatrical exhibition, without any intrusive sharpening or filtering affecting the image.
