Coma

 (1978)

Coma Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

After a patient at her hospital emerges from a routine operation in a coma, Dr. Susan Wheeler learns that several otherwise healthy patients have met the same fate, after which they have been sent off to a mysterious institute. But when she tells her doctor boyfriend, he finds the story hard to believe.

Starring: Geneviève Bujold, Michael Douglas, Rip Torn, Elizabeth Ashley, Richard Widmark, Lois Chiles

Coma Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Coma looks like it should on Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray, which is to say that it's a low-key affair with a muted palette, a soft but reasonably detailed picture and an evident grain structure that never gets in the way of the viewer's enjoyment, unless you're one of those people who thinks all films should have their grain removed. Except for the Jefferson Institute, which is clearly intended to look bizarre and otherworldly, Crichton was clearly going for an ordinary, everyday look that would make the increasingly bizarre events of Coma all the more frightening. His cinematographer, Victor J. Kemper, on whose work I've commented elsewhere, was the ideal cameraman for the job, especially in urban environments. The one limitation in Kemper's photography for Coma is that the blacks are almost never truly black, but this is almost certainly a limitation of the source.

As has been typical of Warner's catalog output, I did not see any indication of degraining, high frequency filtering or detail stripping, nor did I detect any artificial sharpening. The lack of any special features or multi-track audio options has allowed Warner to get away without even using the entire BD-25, let alone risking compression artifacts.


Coma Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Yes, it's a mono soundtrack, but it's a carefully considered one, and it's well-presented in DTS-HD MA. In roughly the first half of the film, where it's business as usual at Boston General Hospital, Crichton makes little use of underscoring, preferring to let ordinary sounds of hospital life create their own sort of tension. Only later, when it's clear that Dr. Susan Wheeler has stumbled across something nefarious, does Crichton bring in Jerry Goldsmith's suspenseful orchestra, effective as always. Dialogue is clear throughout, and the dynamic range is good enough to register a solid impact with a loud tea kettle whistle that plays a critical part in a tense scene.
