Apt Pupil

 (1998)

Apt Pupil Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Todd Bowden is learning about the Holocaust in high school, and recognises an old photograph of a concentration camp officer as an old man in his neighborhood. He confronts the man, Kurt Dussander, with his knowledge. Obsessed with the atrocities Dussander committed during the war, Todd begins to blackmail the old man: in exchange for the teenager's silence, Dussander must reveal his evil past. As Todd probes the old man's buried memories, indications of his evil begin to re-emerge. A game of psychological warfare begins that spirals out of control.

Apt Pupil Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Image Entertainment has been on a roll with their re-releases of catalog titles from the 1980s and '90s, and Apt Pupil continues that streak, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that makes for a solid upgrade from the DVD edition. The print used here is in great condition, with no scratches or even white specks, and it looks to have been transferred faithfully, with no attempts to artificially bolster clarity with edge enhancement or smooth out grain with DNR. The film's palette has always been a bit drab—appropriately so—but color is as consistent and dense as it needs to be, showing no sudden fluctuations or wishy-washy-ness. Black levels could stand to be a little deeper, with more sculpted contrast—the image looks somewhat flat—but this is hardly a concern. Although the film isn't extremely sharp, thanks to a slightly chunky grain structure, the jump to high definition is immediately visible in Ian McKellen's wrinkles and the threading of his knit sweaters. Finally, while darker scenes tend to get noisy, you shouldn't notice any other compression-related distractions. This is probably as good as a release as fans could hope for.


Apt Pupil Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Apt Pupil also makes good use of its lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, with thoughtful, if occasionally overzealous sound design. Todd's nightmare sequences are especially interactive, with gas seeping ominously in through the rear speakers and all-manner of impressionistic swooshes and jolts. The surround channels get ample usage throughout, mostly in the form of ambience, like pouring rain, tweeting birds, blowing wind, and tolling school bells. There also seems to be an attempt at acoustic accuracy. During one scene in the school gym, for example, the sound of Todd's basketball slamming into the backboard reverberates convincingly from all sides. Perhaps the most memorable aspect of the track, though, is composer/editor John Ottman's score, full of bright, rich strings and deep pounding kettledrums. The music does venture into "jump scare" territory a few times, but this is forgivable. Everything has clarity and a decent amount of dynamic breadth, and dialogue sits comfortably on top of the mix, always easy to understand. The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
