Dark Horse Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Dark Horse bears all the marks of digital photography, and after this review was posted, I was contacted by someone who worked on the film, who confirmed that the film was shot with the Red system. The cinematographer was the talented Andrij Parekh, whose effective intermingling of film and digital was essential to the aesthetic of the haunting Blue Valentine. As he so often does, Solondz has situated his dark tale in a superficially cheerful suburban world, and the image on Virgil Films's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray aptly conveys the brightly lit surroundings that merely serve to emphasize the black hole of Abe's life. Noise is wholly absent, blacks are deep and solid, and detail is so good that toy and memorabilia enthusiasts may want to pause the disc during scenes in Abe's bedroom to admire his collections. (The life-size gremlin in his office is also impressive.) Bright primary colors dominate Abe's favorite places, including Toys "R" Us, er, the toy store, but even his father's office looks brighter and more inviting than your typical dingy bean counter's affair. Abe drives a bright yellow Hummer, because, apparently, that's just one of the many toys that sustains his interest in clinging to the edge of the abyss.

A BD-25 is more than sufficient to accommodate this 86-minute film with no extras.


Dark Horse Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The film's DTS-HD MA 5.1 track is serviceable and front-oriented with clear dialogue and a general sense of ambiance, but no real use of discrete effects in the rear channels. The film has no separate score but features a distinctive soundtrack anchored by the recurrent track "Who You Wanna Be", written and performed by Michael Kisur.
