44 Inch Chest Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Image Entertainment brings 44 Inch Chest stateside to Blu-ray with an impressive-for- what-it-is 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, framed in the film's original 1.85:1 aspect ratio. The image is intentionally bleak and dingy—the whole movie is cast in a dismal grayish brown—but the lack of color belies an otherwise decently appointed picture. Clarity is quite strong throughout, with the frequent close-ups of Colin displaying minute, facial feature details, from the tiniest beads of sweat on his brow to the definition of each hair in his scraggly beard. 1080p doesn't really do the art direction any favors—the set really looks like a set—but it's tight and crisp all the same. Given the restrained color scheme and somewhat weak contrast, there's little "pop" or presence to the image, even though black levels are deep and very rarely crush any detail. I popped in a DVD screener for comparison, and the Blu-ray handily beats it, but this is by no means a wowing high definition experience. The cinematography is restrained and non-showy, making sure the dialogue remains the focus. Grain is fine, only spiking a handful of times, and though the movie was shot on film, it has a certain video-esque quality that I can't quite put my finger on. I think it has to do with lighting, mostly. I didn't notice any compression-related distractions or other mishaps or mishandlings.


44 Inch Chest Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Like the cinematography, the film's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is extremely reserved, enhancing the story's this could easily be a stage play vibe. Obviously, the dialogue is the most important element here, and it's handled flawlessly, broadcast up front and center with clarity and strength. Angelo Badalamenti and Massive Attack's score is quiet and complementary, never overpowering the proceedings but hanging back to subtly underscore Colin's emotions. The music is bled into the rear channels quite often, but otherwise there's little use of the surrounds, except for some understated ambience and two, maybe three cross-channel effects, like passing cars and the spin of a 2-pence coin on a hardwood floor. The track never gets a chance to outright roar, but bass does creep in to accentuate the tension at times, and the music has plenty of depth and detail. English SDH and Spanish subtitles are available in easy-to-read white lettering.
