Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry

 (2012)

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Ai Weiwei is known for many things—great architecture, subversive in-your-face art, and political activism. He has also called for greater transparency on the part of the Chinese state. Director Alison Klayman chronicles the complexities of Ai’s life for three years, beginning with his rise to public prominence via blog and Twitter after he questioned the deaths of more than 5,000 students in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. The record continues through his widely publicized arrest in Beijing in April of 2011. As Ai prepares various works of art for major international exhibitions, his activism heats up, and his run-ins with China’s authorities become more and more frequent.

For more about Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry and the Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry Blu-ray release, see Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Shot primarily on small, portable HDCAM video cameras and featuring a variety of archival TV news clips—many in standard definition—Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry nevertheless looks great on Blu-ray, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that seems true to its sources. Of course, anytime you're shooting with fairly inexpensive video gear, you can expect certain issues to crop up—blown out highlights, occasional aliasing, heavy noise in darker situations—and while these are certainly present, they're never distracting. Just like many documentaries in the '60 and '70s were shot on 16mm— more flexible than 35mm but with reduced analog resolution—it makes sense for filmmakers to work with whatever type of camera suits their immediate needs, even if picture quality is slightly diminished. In this case, with Alison Klayman following Ai Weiwei around from police stations to galleries to hotel rooms, an HDCAM is perfect. Clarity can vary somewhat in the out-and-about scenes, but most of the sit-down interview material is quite sharp, with strong facial detail and visible fine textures. Color is strictly realistic—no heavy grading here—and while the highlights do often peak, contrast is otherwise right where it needs to be. Beyond some minor color banding, there are no obvious compression issues here. Overall, a faithful presentation that's a good step or two up, visually, from streaming or VOD options.


Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Never Sorry features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that's surprisingly well-mixed for a follow-a-guy-around-type documentary. What makes it is the fantastic score by Ilan Isakov, which drifts in and out of the background, filling all the channels with an ambient wash of guitar, Chinese instrumentation, and electronics. The music suits the mood of each sequence and has good dynamic presence without being overpowering. There's even occasional environmental noise panned into the rear speakers, like light rain, street clamor, and other outdoor sounds. The real focus, though, are the subjects' voices—expect to hear Mandarin and English about equally—which are always cleanly recorded and easy to understand. Any muffling or peaking here is fleeting. The disc defaults to English subtitles for sections spoken in Mandarin, but there are also optional English SDH, Spanish, and Simplified Chinese subtitles, all in legible yellow type.
