Don't Say a Word

 (2001)

Don't Say a Word Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A group of thieves steal a rare gem, but in the process, two of the men double cross the leader of the thieving group, Patrick, and take off with the precious stone. Ten years later, prominent psychiatrist Nathan Conrad is invited to examine a disturbed young woman named Elisabeth. Patrick immediately kidnaps Nathan's daughter, forcing Nathan to attempt to get Elisabeth to reveal a secret number which will ultimately lead Patrick to the whereabouts of the precious gem that has eluded him.

Don't Say a Word Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The cinematographer of Don't Say a Word was the Iranian DP Amir Mokri, who began his career in the Eighties on small films for such arthouse directors as Wayne Wang and (at the time) Kathryn Bigelow, then graduated to big-budget fare (most recently the third Transformers film for Michael Bay, for whom he also shot Bad Boys II). Working at the tail end of the photochemical era, Mokri created three distinct looks for the film. For the robbery prologue, he used "bleach bypass" processing to desaturate the negative and create an appearance signifying a past event. For Elisabeth's childhood memories, he used reversal stock to obtain intense colors and rough, almost harsh images, because these are not happy memories. For the rest of the film, Mokri used standard 35mm film, but he used washes of tint to distinguish between cold, antiseptic environments, such as Elisabeth's room at the Bridgeview facility or the coroner's office, and warm locales like the Conrad apartment.

The 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray reproduces these varied colors and textures faithfully, with excellent detail and black levels that accurately present Mokri's carefully balanced shadows. (In his commentary, director Fleder penitently notes a shot where he overruled his DP by insisting that Michael Douglas' face be fully lit, then decides he was right after all.) Grain is faintly present if you look for it, but this is overall an elegantly smooth image, even in the reversal stock footage, which is more likely to display blown-out whites than grain (and that's a deliberate effect). I did not detect compression artifacts, DNR, ringing or any other distortions. This is often a dark image, but it's a very good one.


Don't Say a Word Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Fleder says in his commentary that he believes in using sound to convey the subjective state of characters, and that he encourages his sound designers to add sounds that aren't there. This philosophy is evident before the film's first image appears, as the sounds of the subway fill the surrounds, because the subway plays a crucial role in Elisabeth's memory. Another notable example occurs when Nathan first realizes his daughter is missing and rushes out onto his apartment terrace; the cacophony of the city surrounds him when he first steps outside, but in reality it would be part of the continuum of sound long before he reached the terrace door.

The Blu-ray's DTS-HD MA 5.1 track reproduces these and many other immersive effects with power and presence. Subways, power boats and various excavations provide interesting opportunities for sound design, as a does a trip into Chinatown. Dialogue remains clear throughout, and Mark Isham's score is well-reproduced. (As Fleder points out, Isham's score is crucial at the end of the second act, where the story cuts back and forth among several different chains of events, and the score serves as the common thread holding them together.)
