The disc’s picture quality is good (with some slight brightness issues that wash out contrast), and the newly remixed soundtrack for 5.1 adds to the ambiance of the empty streets.

Neil deGrasse Tyson calls it one of the greatest science-fiction films ever made. Its beauty and its profundities are all accidental. One could never repeat an effort like The Quiet Earth; it stands alone in a universe that seems to be itself completely an original. But you could have hundreds, if not thousands, of The Tree of Life. It turns out that the weirdest flowers and shrubs grow best in the soil of B movies.
