Double Indemnity Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.32:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Billy Wilder's Double Indemnity arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

I think it is fair to say that the wait was well worth it as this is undoubtedly the best presentation this stylish noir film has ever seen on any home video format. I must speculate that a lot of people will be enormously pleased with it.

Detail and clarity are very good throughout the entire film. The daylight sequences look sharp and fresh, while the nighttime sequences boast pleasing depth. The blockiness from the R1 DVD release has also been eliminated (if you still have a copy in your library, see and compare the sequence screencapture #11 is taken from). Color grading is also convincing. The blacks are lush and stable, never looking boosted, while the grays and whites are well balanced. However, I am most pleased with the fact that there are no traces of overzealous sharpening corrections. Unsurprisingly, when projected the film looks lovely, especially where there is plenty of light (see screencapture #13). The more subdued shots also have strong organic qualities (see screencapture #5). Generally speaking, grain is evenly distributed and present throughout the entire film, and selected close-ups look beautiful (see screencapture #1). Occasionally, there are small fluctuations, and a bit of extremely light noise sneaks in, but overall the high-definition transfer is indeed very strong. Finally, there are no large damage marks, debris, warps, or splices. To sum it all up, this is a competent presentation of Double Indemnity that should please its fans. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Double Indemnity Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. A music and effects track is also included. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The dialog is stable, clean, and easy to follow. There is no strong background hiss or problematic audio distortions to report in this review. This being said, the film's dynamic amplitude is quite limited; there are only a few sequences where Miklós Rózsa's music score truly comes alive (thanks to the excellent strings). But this is not to imply that there are serious technical issues, rather that the film's sound design is fairly modest. All in all, the lossless track opens up the film very well in all the right places.
