An Officer and a Gentleman

 (1982)

An Officer and a Gentleman Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Once in a great while a movie comes along that truly grips and uplifts its audiences. Such a movie is An Officer And A Gentleman, a timeless tale of romance, friendship and growth. Loner Zack Mayo (Richard Gere) enters Officer Candidate School to become a Navy pilot and in thirteen tortuous weeks he learns the importance of discipline, love and friendship. Louis Gossett, Jr. won an Academy Award for his brilliant portrayal of the tough drill instructor who teaches Zack that no man can make it alone. And while Gossett tries to warn the young officer about the local girls who will do anything to catch themselves pilot husbands, Zack eventually learns to love one (Debra Winger) while his fellow candidate, a memorable character portrayed by David Keith, struggles with a very different fate. An Officer And A Gentleman is a rich and satisfying story with moving performances that will stay with you long after the film has ended.

An Officer and a Gentleman Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

An Officer and a Gentleman was shot by DP Donald E. Thorin, whose intriguing Eighties resumé also includes director Hackford's Against All Odds and Michael Mann's Thief. Thorin made the most of the production value supplied by the locations in the town of Port Washington, and his work is crisply and clearly represented on Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray of this Paramount film. The image is fine-grained, detailed and richly colored, with the kind of film-like appearance that sometimes appears "soft" to eyes conditioned by digital photography and post-processing. But pay close attention, and you'll observe that all of the minute elements of uniforms, landscapes, machinery and expressions are fully resolved without the harsh edges that the digital age often imparts. The sole exception is Gossett's face, because it is frequently shaded under the drill instructor's wide-brimmed hat (a major lighting challenge to the DP, as Hackford notes in his commentary). Even so, Gossett's performance is so vivid that he makes the occasional darkness work in his favor.

The sole criticism—and it is so minor that most viewers probably will not notice—is an occasional flicker on complex backgrounds (e.g., a shot behind Foley and Mayo during the "six to ninety" exercise) that resembles aliasing. Otherwise, no artifacts were observed. The average bitrate is an impressive 29.93 Mbps.


An Officer and a Gentleman Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Paramount's 2000 DVD offered the film's original mono soundtrack in Dolby Digital. The studio's "special collector's edition" DVD in 2007 offered a choice between 5.1 and mono tracks, both in DD. This Blu-ray from Warner offers a single 5.1 option in English, which has been encoded as lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1.

The omission of the film's original mix is unfortunate, but at least the 5.1 remix has been handled conservatively. The sound remains in front, with the soundstage expanded across the three front channels and the dialogue firmly anchored to the center. Dynamic range is excellent, with deep extension that really brings out the bass notes of the orchestrations and the bass drums of a military band. Sound effects are somewhat less pronounced, however. During scenes at the paper factory, for example, the machinery doesn't roar with the kind of authority that is characteristic of such industrial devices in real life. These limitations are undoubtedly inherent in the original mix, with its tight budget.

Jack Nitzsche's score sounds wonderful, as do the various period-specific pop tunes rendered either as source music or as soundtrack selections, including Pat Benatar's "Treat Me Right" (which supplies an ironic undercurrent to Paula's and Lynette's ride to the base) and Van Morrison's "Hungry for Your Love".
