Catfish

 (2010)

Catfish Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

In late 2007, filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost sensed a story unfolding as they began to film the life of Ariel’s brother, Nev. They had no idea that their project would lead to the most exhilarating and unsettling months of their lives.

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

Catfish Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Shot on a shoestring and a prayer with whatever cameras first-time feature film directors Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost had at their immediate disposal, Catfish isn't primed for high definition glory. Be that as it may, Universal's 1080p/VC-1 encoded transfer is a proficient one, and documentary diehards will shrug off its shortcomings accordingly. Digital video anomalies litter the proceedings, colors and skintones are slaves to a variety of lighting sources, nighttime sequences are a mess, crush and ringing are frequent offenders, and clarity rises and falls as Schulman and Joost deploy everything from adequate handheld cameras to low-quality lapel cams. Still, aside from some semi-regular bursts of noise and artifacting, all of which trace back to the film's source, there aren't any debilitating distractions to endure. Certainly none that call Universal's efforts into question. Suffice to say, the Blu-ray edition of Catfish isn't going to turn any heads, but it looks about as good as it possibly could.


Catfish Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The same goes for Universal's decidedly decent DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, an inherently flawed but technically capable lossless mix that handles Schulman and Joost's shifty soundscape with ease. Dialogue is as clean and clear as can be expected, wind noise and mic issues are kept to a reasonable minimum, and the tic-tac of keyboards is nice and crisp throughout. A few scenes struggle with throaty and muffled sonics (a sequence involving a late night excursion is particularly problematic), but it tends to enhance the film's tension rather than undermine it. There also isn't much LFE oomph or rear speaker support to speak of -- save that which allows Mark Mothersbaugh's score to commandeer the soundfield -- and the film is far more immersive than its 5.1 mix. Even so, there aren't any real issues to complain about. Catfish is a low-key documentary and the studio's DTS-HD MA track follows suit. Filmfans won't be blown away, but they will be pleased with the results.
