Brawler Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

I have been unable to confirm the shooting format of Brawler. The cinematographer, Zoran Popovic, shot another film entitled Shiver the same year on the Red system. While the Red is capable of enormous flexibility in post-production, especially in the hands of skilled technicians in a digital intermediate suite, Brawler's visual texture looks more like that of film origination (even 16mm film in some of the softer shots). Whatever its origins, the Image on XLrator Media's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is clear and detailed. Even in darker spaces where the image detail fades with the darkness, it's apparent that the threshold where detail begins to vanish has been deliberately chosen.

Brawler favors a desaturated palette, especially in evening and night scenes, and it's obviously intended to convey the down 'n' dirty world of the Fontaine brothers' shadowy fighting pursuits. Even during the day, however, colors are muted, so much so that an occasionally strong color stands out, e.g., the green garden of older brother Charlie's "real" home. There are few scenes with deep black, but one of them is a fancy dress party, where Charlie secures the brothers an evening of "legitimate" catering work, and younger brother Bobby misbehaves. Take Bobby out of the murky world of illegal boxing and into a place with a dress code, and his reverse snobbery kicks into high gear.

The Blu-ray appears to have been sourced from digital files from the DI, which eliminates any issues of high frequency filtering or digital sharpening. At 84 minutes with virtually no extras, compression artifacts were not an issue.


Brawler Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The film's DTS-HD MA 5.1 track uses the surrounds for ambiance, with an occasional strong effect in the rear for a special impact. One memorable example is a knock at the door that initiates a critical sequence (you'll know it when it comes). The lossless track also does full justice to the New Orleans/Cajun soundtrack by Tim Rutili, with original songs written and performed by Howlin Rain and Armand St. Martin, among others. The music never lets you forget where you are.
