Copycat

 (1995)

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

Helen Hudson is a brilliant forensic psychologist who specializes in the study of serial killers. After one of her subjects attempts to kill her, Hudson suffers a nervous breakdown and becomes agoraphobic. However, when a series of ritualized murders baffle the San Francisco Police Department, M.J. Monahan, a feisty, intelligent detective, turns to the unwilling Hudson for help in finding the killer. The team of doctor and detective becomes a target when their quarry learns who is on his trail.

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

Copycat Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Copycat was shot by the late László Kovács, and it somehow seems appropriate that a film which prominently features a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the so-called "Summer of Love" was photographed by the cinematographer of Easy Rider. The 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray captures the rough, slightly grainy but detailed texture of Kovács' images, which run the gamut from the spotless white ladies room where Daryll Lee attacks Dr. Hudson, to the green public spaces where celebrations are being held, to the barren hilltop where the killer displays one of his victims, to the darkened interiors of Dr. Hudson's apartment. Black levels and shadow detail are good even in the darkest scenes, and this is especially important in Copycat, where Kovács frequently achieved impressive depth of field even though he was using anamorphic lenses. Colors are vividly differentiated but not oversaturated. (I am aware that another site's review complained about unstable reds, but a red dress worn by Dr. Hudson plays a key role in the film, and it looked fine on my 72" screen.)

If there is any criticism to be made of Warner's effort, it's that a film running over two hours should never be crammed onto a BD-25, especially with the large assortment of audio options that Warner has included. After looking very carefully at both the image in motion and at screen captures accompanying this review, I could not detect any DNR or other digital filtering intended to simplify the compressionist's job. However, light filtering can be difficult to detect in the absence of an unfiltered source for comparison, and I was struck by how quickly the image lost cohesion when one zooms in on still shots. It would not surprise me to find that the Blu-ray of Copycat looks considerably less appealing when projected on a large screen. This should not necessarily deter a purchaser today, but I share Robert Harris' view that every Blu-ray should be playable with equal quality on any size screen.


Copycat Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The sound editing for Copycat is subtle and sophisticated, but the 5.1 track, presented here in DTS lossless, makes almost no use of the surrounds. The film's credits indicate that it was released in Dolby Digital surround, but the DVD's credits state that the sound had to be "remastered" for DD 5.1; therefore, it's possible that the original soundtrack was limited to stereo, which would be consistent with the film's relatively limited budget and would account for the front-centered nature of the 5.1 mix. In any case, voices are clearly rendered, as are atmospheric changes in sound that reflect changes in point of view, particularly as Dr. Hudson's fragile psyche reacts to various developments. The score by Christopher Young (Drag Me to Hell) is particularly good, evoking such disparate sources as Bernard Hermann, Michael Small in Klute and classical composers. The Police's "Murder by Numbers" features prominently at one point, because the killer uses the lyrics as a message (and a taunt). At least he has good taste in music.
