A Single Man

 (2009)

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

In Los Angeles 1962, at the height of the Cuban missile crisis George Falconer, a 52 year old British college professor is struggling to find meaning to his life after the death of his long time partner, Jim. George dwells on the past and cannot see his future as we follow him through a single day, where a series of events and encounters, ultimately lead him to decide if there is a meaning to life after Jim. George is consoled by his closest friend Charley, a 48 year old beauty who is wrestling with her own questions about the future. A young student of George's, Kenny, who is coming to terms with his true nature, stalks George as he feels in him a kindred spirit. A romantic tale of love interrupted the isolation that is an inherent part of the human condition and ultimately the importance of the seemingly smaller moments in life.

A Single Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

A Single Man earns a strong 1080p, 2.40:1-framed transfer. Tom Ford's picture isn't the stuff of high definition eye candy by default, but the transfer handles the film's varied visuals nicely. The image generally takes on a pale gray appearance that washes out much of the color; at other times, color springs onto the screen and looks almost over-saturated and with an excessively red push. Likewise, flesh tones carry these traits; they look pasty and pale in some scenes and capture a heavy reddish/orange tint in others. However, black levels remain stable and honest throughout. The image features a variable grain structure that's potent in some scenes and barely visible in others. Fine detail is lacking in a general sense, but the absence is more a result of Ford's and Cinematographer Eduard Grau's visual style than it is a fault of the Blu-ray transfer. Objects sometimes lack pinpoint definition, but close-ups of clothes and faces do deliver more intricate texturing. A Single Man isn't a film constructed for dazzling visuals. True to Blu-ray's strength, however, the film looks wonderful within the context of the director- and cinematographer-intended visuals.


A Single Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

A high-quality DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack accompanies A Single Man onto Blu-ray. The track proves highly aggressive from the outset; one early scene is dynamic, full, and loud but also precise, making fine use of the entire dynamic range while also engaging the surround channels. The picture's classically-oriented score enjoys a flowing, easy, and crystal-clear presentation. The low end isn't often engaged, but when it is, it delivers a potent and hard-hitting sensation that's not overbearing but certainly a step up from the picture's more generally relaxed and dialogue-heavy foundation. Ambient sound effects are nicely realized when active; a cacophony of buzzing insects in chapter seven nicely immerses the listener into an outdoor environment, and a gusting wind blows clearly and precisely across the front half of the soundstage in the same scene. Dialogue reproduction never misses a beat from beginning to end. Like the video, this isn't a presentation meant to wow the senses, but it's a fine listen within the context of the movie.
