Coriolanus

 (2011)

Coriolanus Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Caius Martius 'Coriolanus', a revered and feared Roman General is at odds with the city of Rome and his fellow citizens. Pushed by his controlling and ambitious mother Volumnia to seek the exalted and powerful position of Consul, he is loath to ingratiate himself with the masses whose votes he needs in order to secure the office. When the public refuses to support him, Coriolanus's anger prompts a riot that culminates in his expulsion from Rome. The banished hero then allies himself with his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius to take his revenge on the city.

For more about Coriolanus and the Coriolanus Blu-ray release, see Coriolanus Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Gerard Butler, Ralph Fiennes, Brian Cox, Jessica Chastain, Vanessa Redgrave, John Kani

Coriolanus Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Appropriately enough for a film that echoes so many of The Hurt Locker's themes, Coriolanus also shares its cinematographer, Barry Ackroyd. (His other credits include United 93 and The Green Zone for Paul Greengrass, as well as the recent Contraband.) Ackroyd gives the battle scenes in Coriolanus the same gritty immediacy he supplied for Katherine Bigelow's Oscar winner, but both he and Fiennes are careful to minimize the use of the camera style commonly known as "shaky cam". There's just enough of it to convey the soldier's shifting point of view, but generally the battle effects are achieved by other means, including odd angles, variable speeds and desaturation.

The film was completed on a digital intermediate, and Anchor Bay's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray was presumably sourced from the digital files, thereby providing a faithful rendering of the finished film. Detail is excellent, grain patterns appear natural (to the extent they have survived the DI process), and the filmed sequences have been skillfully blended with the "found" footage culled from news reports (primarily from the war in Kosovo) so that it's often hard to tell what's been faked and what's real. Within the imaginary world of the film, the Serbian locations contribute a strong sense of reality, and the Blu-ray's impressive reproduction of the imagery is essential to the film's impact. Even though the film has numerous kinetic sequences, the lack of any major video extras has allowed Anchor Bay to get away with releasing this two-plus hour film on a BD-25.


Coriolanus Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There's a saying that war is good for business, but it's also good for sound designers. Particularly in its opening half hour, the DTS-HD MA 5.1 track of Coriolanus is positively unnerving in its evocation of the hell of an urban firefight, with automatic weapons fire from all sides, explosions, debris and rocket fire. In the Roman sequences, where political intrigues are always brewing, the sound of the crowd that will ultimately banish the general from the city fills the soundfield, sometimes as an ominous murmur, sometimes as a roaring chant of disapproval. A different kind of roar is heard after Coriolanus strikes his alliance with Aufidius and inspires admiration among his men: raucous, boisterous, but also dangerous. The sound design ensures that the viewer is always aware of these forces that are either raining down destruction or on the verge of doing so.

Long passages of the film proceed as visual storytelling, without dialogue. However, the mixers have been careful to ensure that the actors are fully audible when they deliver the portions of Shakespeare's text that Logan and Fiennes deemed essential (Fiennes speaks to this point on the commentary). One of the great advantages of Shakespeare on film is that it frees an actor to explore an entire range of volume for delivering the lines. In Coriolanus, Vanessa Redgrave's Volumnia is the chief beneficiary of this technical enhancement, as she explores every nuance of the steely mother's manipulative relationship with her warrior offspring, often speaking the harshest sentiments in a voice barely above a whisper. On the Blu-ray's track, you can hear every word.
