A Perfect Murder Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Polish cinematographer Dariusz Wolski (The Crow, Prometheus) discusses on his commentary track what a departure it was for him to shoot a film that was primarily dialogue instead of action set pieces, but he also says that director Davis shoots dialogue like an action director, with the camera constantly moving. Wolski also had to address the practical demands of shooting in places like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, whose proprietors placed severe restrictions on what lighting equipment could and couldn't be used. In the end, he delivered a rich and glossy image for the Taylors' life, taking full advantage of his background working with directors who came from the world of advertising such as Alex Proyas and Ridley Scott. In contrast to the deep hues and luxuriant surfaces of the Taylors' world, Shaw's studio and general environs are rougher and edgier (with brighter colors, especially red, as an accent), and the image has more "grit" to it.

Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray reproduces Wolski's imagery with a detailed and fine-grained picture that is natural and film-like. The blacks are deep, which is essential in such dark locations as Shaw's studio. The subtly rich hues in both the Taylor apartment and Steven's enormous downtown office are reproduced with understated intensity. (In his commentary, production designer Philip Rosenberg says he wanted Steven's office to reflect that its occupant was tasteful, as opposed to, say, Donald Trump.) The grain structure appears undisturbed by filtering, sharpening or other inappropriate tinkering, and I did not encounter any compression artifacts.


A Perfect Murder Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

As befits a film that is primarily dialogue, A Perfect Murder's soundtrack, presented in DTS-HD MA 5.1, doesn't have any showy surround effects, but it does use the full speaker array to create a sense of ambiance in interesting environments like the museum gala attended by Steven and Emily, the subway when Emily rides it, an Amtrak train, various restaurants, a U.N. summit meeting and a crowded downtown park. The bass extension on James Newton Howard's characteristically dramatic score is solid and powerful, and the rest of its range sounds good as well. Dialogue is always clear.
