Brüno

 (2009)

Brüno Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Sacha Baron Cohen (the creator and star of Borat) returns to the big screen in the hilarious adventures of Austria's favorite fashionista, Bruno. In this gleefully anarchic mockumentary, the flamboyant television host loses his homeland talk show, "Funkyzeit," and does what any self-respecting wannabe would do -- he moves to Hollywood to pursue worldwide super-stardom. From worlds of fashion and entertainment to the military, Bruno puts his worst foot forward as Baron Cohen fearlessly tramples the boundaries of good taste in ways that confound celebrities and just plain folks alike.

For more about Brüno and the Brüno Blu-ray release, see Brüno Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Sacha Baron Cohen, Gustaf Hammarsten, Josh Meyers

Brüno Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Brüno's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is difficult to evaluate. It strikes me as a technically proficient presentation that, for better or worse, captures the intended look of Cohen's faux-documentary, but it's also plagued by source anomalies that undermine the end result; anomalies I can only assume are products of Cohen's handheld footage rather than an uneven transfer. Brüno never looks better than it does in its opening minutes. Colors burst from every corner of the Milan Fashion Week stages, shadows are suitably deep, textures are crisp, and detail is commendable. But while Cohen continues to employ high definition cameras throughout the production, a lot of his footage is culled from on-the-go, lower quality devices. In these instances, fine detail is inconsistent, contrast vaults between overblown (during daytime exterior scenes) and murky (as it is when the actor retreats to dark hotel rooms and streetside locales), and various other issues -- as arguably minor as they may be in the grand scheme of things -- become distractions. Artifacting, crush, pulldown (as evidenced during the wrestling sequence), interline twitter, source noise, smearing, unresolved black levels, and ringing are all evident at one point or another, and rarely does five minutes go by without one or more disruptions making an appearance.

Still, when Brüno is viewed as a documentary, such oddities serve to enhance audience immersion and fulfill Cohen's intended illusion. As it stands, anyone approaching the Blu-ray edition with appropriate expectations will be satisfied with Universal's efforts.


Brüno Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

I could essentially rehash everything I just wrote about Brüno's video transfer and apply it to Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Cohen doesn't often have the luxury of capturing the best sound during his various encounters and the studio's mix, while distinctly a lossless experience, is ultimately a tad underwhelming. Dialogue is generally crisp and well-prioritized, but often gets trampled in the inevitable chaos that erupts around Brüno. Likewise, LFE output is weighty and rear speaker activity involving, but only when the agile Austrian finds himself on the run with security officers, an angry dominatrix, or furious Middle Eastern mobs in hot pursuit. Moreover, directionality is imprecise, pans are rather stocky, and dynamics are decidedly hit or miss. With that in mind, I doubt Brüno could possibly sound much better. Its sonics, while strained, get the job done and its presentation, while unreliable, respectfully adheres to Cohen's faux-documentary style. Fans won't be disappointed.
