A Serious Man

 (2009)

A Serious Man Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

An original and darkly humorous story about one ordinary man’s quest to become a serious man. Physics professor Larry Gopnik can’t believe his life: His wife is leaving him for his best friend, his unemployed brother won’t move off the couch, someone is threatening his career, his kids are a mystery and his neighbor is tormenting him by sunbathing nude. Struggling to make sense of it all, Larry consults three different rabbis and their answers lead him on a twisted journey of faith, family, delinquent behavior and mortality.

For more about A Serious Man and the A Serious Man Blu-ray release, see A Serious Man Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Michael Stuhlbarg, Richard Kind, Fred Melamed, Simon Helberg, Adam Arkin, George Wyner
Directors: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen

A Serious Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

With a striking, nearly hypnotic 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer tucked snuggly in its belt, the Blu-ray edition of A Serious Man is a seriously stunning sight to behold. Cinematographer Roger Deakins' artful palette -- whether simmering in Jefferson Airplane oranges and reds, brimming with earthy leatherbound browns, swimming in autumnal oak, or awash with clinical greens and storm-cloud grays -- is strong and stable, populating the presentation with exceedingly natural skintones, alluring primaries, and impeccably resolved blacks. Contrast is remarkable as well, lending the image depth and dimensionality befitting the vast classrooms and cramped offices that dot Larry's descent into hopelessness. And detail? Just take a moment to peruse the screenshots accompanying this review, dear readers. Fine textures have been carefully rendered and refined, definition is incredibly sharp yet incredibly clean (no edge enhancement or ringing here), and delineation is quite revealing. Moreover, artifacting, source noise, aliasing, DNR, and crush are nowhere to be found. Some slight but pesky shimmering is an occasional distraction, but it isn't prevalent enough to warrant much concern. All in all, A Serious Man looks fantastic in high definition. Some will even argue, perhaps rightfully so, that its transfer is a top-tier, reference level presentation. Well done, Universal.

Please note: the Coens' opening segment is accurately presented with a 1.32:1 aspect ratio (see screenshot 13) while the remaining film is presented at 1.85:1.


A Serious Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Be careful passing judgment on Universal's oh-so-subtle DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track during A Serious Man's opening act. Make no mistake, when it wants to be heard, it does so with poise and power. While the majority of the film is a front-heavy, conversational affair, brief but steady eruptions of madness make the whole of the track a truly satisfying experience. Title cards appear with the hearty thunder of a slamming prison cell door, a three-car accident packs notable punch, intermittent '60s classics assault the listener from every direction, a surging storm calls upon the full force of the LFE channel, a face-on-blackboard attack arrives with a wince-inducing thud thud thud, and a rabbi's anecdote is blessed with enveloping sonics that makes its playful soundscape as memorable as his story's intentionally anticlimactic conclusion. Through it all, subdued rear activity delivers realistic interior acoustics and environmental ambience, all of which are a testament to the soundfield's worth. Dialogue remains warm, crisp, and perfectly prioritized regardless of the passivity or aggressiveness of the scene it accompanies, and directional effects are precise and convincing. Don't misunderstand. A Serious Man doesn't boast a bombastic mix or a traditionally immersive track. However, those who appreciate the Coen Brothers' less-is-more sound design will be more than pleased with the results.
