Barrymore

 (2011)

Barrymore Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

With his career in tatters, aging actor John Barrymore rents an old theater and begins rehearsing for a backer's audition to raise money for a revival of his former triumph as Shakespeare's Richard III.

For more about Barrymore and the Barrymore Blu-ray release, see Barrymore Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Christopher Plummer
Director: Erik Canuel

Barrymore Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Shot on hi-def video by cinematographer Bernard Couture, a frequent collaborator of director Erik Canuel, Barrymore arrives in a first-class 1080p, AVC-encoded presentation from Image Entertainment that captures the tiniest flicker of star Christopher Plummer's precisely calibrated performance. The blacks in this image are deep and solid, and the shadow detail is precisely delineated so that Canuel's and Couture's artful use of shadows in the wings—which is crucial to the expanded function of the prompter, Frank—registers perfectly. Whether in long shots showing the entire stage or in close-ups on Plummer, details of costumes, props and the theatrical machinery surrounding the stage are readily discernible.

When the image occasionally fades to black-and-white, the effect has been achieved in post-production); the shades of grey don't have quite the depth of old-fashioned Hollywood cinema, but the contrast with images in color achieves the necessary effect. Other digital tricks, such as the view of Florence, are obviously artificial, which gives them an appropriate theatricality. Colors are soft but rich. The image has none of the harshness often associated with digital photography.

Banding or other artifacts, including compression issues, did not appear.


Barrymore Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Barrymore's original 5.1 soundtrack is provided as lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1, and it's a far more active affair than one might expect from such a dialogue-driven film. Because Frank's lines are delivered from the wings, good stereo separation is essential. Depending on the perspective of the moment, his voice issues from either the left or the right, while Barrymore remains in the middle. In one memorable sequence, Barrymore insists that Frank switch to the other side, and we hear him move. The live audience that Barrymore imagines in the theater when he first enters laughs gently at his opening jokes (and, of course, there really was an audience there for this portion), and later the massive house lights rumble through the soundfield with tremendous impact as they switch on and off.

Of course, there's Plummer's wide array of vocal acrobatics as Barrymore, ranging from the quietest murmur to violent fits of anger to eloquent oratory. Plummer alone gives the audio track's dynamic range a thorough workout.

The discreet score by Michel Corriveau (another frequent collaborator of director Canuel) plays gently and often so unobtrusively that it's easy to finish viewing the film without ever noticing that it had music.
