Dressed to Kill Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.34:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Brian De Palma's Dressed to Kill arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Arrow Video.

The following text appears inside the booklet included with this release:

"Dressed to Kill was transferred from a 35mm interpositive. The film was transferred in High Definition on a Spirit Datacine at the Post Group in Hollywood, California. The audio was transferred from an original 35mm mono mag. This work was managed by David Sargent and Mary Grace Nicolas for MGM.

I did not see any sizable discrepancies between Carlotta Films' release of Dressed to Kill and this new release from Arrow Video. Generally speaking, detail and clarity are consistently very pleasing. Some softness is present, but as I noted in our review of the French release it could easily be traced back to the film's principal photography. There are no traces of excessive deraining or sharpening corrections. Some light noise occasionally creeps in but it never becomes distracting. Color reproduction is pleasing. Lastly, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. Also, there are no large cuts, splices, damage marks, or stains. All in all, I think that this is a competent and pleasing presentation of Brian De Palma's classic thriller that should make its fans happy. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Dressed to Kill Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: English LPCM 2.0 and English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Arrow Video have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.

I think that the English LPCM 2.0 track is outspreading. Some viewers will likely choose the 5.1 track, which is also quite good, but the LPCM 2.0 track gives the film the period feel it needs. Depth, clarity, and overall dynamic movement are indeed very good. Pino Donaggio's score, in particular, benefits a great deal from the lossless treatment. The dialog is clean, stable, and easy to follow.
