Chasing Madoff

 (2010)

Chasing Madoff Blu-ray despite solid video and great audio falls short as an overall poor Blu-ray release

The story of Harry Markopolos and his team of investigator's ten-year struggle to expose the harrowing truth behind the infamous Madoff scandal. Throughout the decade long investigation, Markopolos pieced together a chain of white-collar predators consisting of bankers, lieutenants, and henchmen, all linked to the devastating Ponzi scheme. With risk and danger apparent, Markopolos and his loyal team relentlessly continued to pursue the frightening truth. Finding himself trapped in a web of epic deceit, the once unassuming Boston securities analyst turned vigilante investigator now feared for his life and the safety of his family, as he discovered no one would listen.

Chasing Madoff Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Chasing Madoff was shot primarily on high definition digital video, with additional stock footage--much of it in standard definition--drawn from a variety of sources, from 1930s gangster films to contemporary news broadcasts. On Blu-ray, the 1080p/AVC encode looks true-to-source and often impressive. The interview sequences are very striking, visually, with the subjects dramatically lit and placed in front of ink-black backgrounds. Here, the level of clarity is at its best, with fine facial and clothing detail that's easily visible, even at a distance. The overly histrionic reenactments featuring Markopolos aren't quite as sharp, but still reveal plenty of high definition texture. The black and white sequences are stark and noir-ish and appropriately shadowy, while those shot in color have a more realistic, documentarian style, with a picture that's never especially punchy but has good saturation and natural skin tones. Obviously, not a lot can be done about the standard definition footage, which is what is is. The encode itself is stable and mostly free of compression issues, though you will notice periodic aliasing and shimmer and source noise. Nothing particularly distracting, though.


Chasing Madoff Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

I don't normally expect documentaries to feature carefully engineered sound design, so I had practically written the audio portion of this review in my mind before I even popped in the disc--quiet, lots of talking heads, not much surround channel usage. I was pleasantly surprised, then, by the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track featured here, a potent mix that makes full use of its multi-channel encode. As I mentioned above, the documentary has a tendency to be extremely dramatic, and this goes for the sound effects and music too. From traffic noise and general city ambience to gun shots and impressionistic swooshes, the rear-channels come to life often and effectively with directional sounds. The sometimes overly emphatic music--by David Fluery--is punchy and anchored with plenty of bass. There are lots of talking heads, yes, but the vocal recording are cleanly recorded, well integrated into the mix, and easily understood. For those that need or want them, the disc comes with optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
