Food, Inc

 (2008)

Food, Inc Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

The veil on our nation's food industry is lifted, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the U.S. consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of our farmers, the safety of our workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of e coli--the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 of our citizens annually.

Food, Inc Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Shot with the beguilingly bright colors of a supermarket aisle, Food, Inc. arrives on Blu- ray with a 1080p/VC-1 encoded transfer of the film's high definition video source material. To be honest, the film could look muckier than a factory farm and still be effective, but thankfully, this presentation is generally strong. As you'd expect from a documentary, colors are bold but realistic. There's no stylization here, no digital trickery or post-production color toning. What you see is what you get—a lifelike appearance. Black levels are adequately deep—though never as inky as you might see in a more cinematic film—and contrast is also kept within the bounds of reason. Clarity can be hit or miss. Close-ups show the fine facial detail you expect from high definition video, but some of the longer shots look slightly unresolved. As the documentary was shot on video, it occasionally exemplifies some of the shortcomings of the medium. Digital noise varies from being practically non-existent to buzzing heavily over the frame, depending on the lighting. There are a few instances of mild macroblocking—usually in background detail—and I spotted some slight banding during two or three scenes, through you'd really have to crane to spot it. Some of the talking head close-ups show some haloing on strong lines, but it's hard to tell if this is native to the camera that was used or if some edge enhancement was applied in post- production. Either way, it's never a distraction. Do note that the documentary uses a lot of archive footage that is obviously culled from standard definition sources. During these segments, which are often masked to mimic the shape of an older television screen, you'll spot lots of blocking and aliasing, though this is entirely unavoidable. It may sound like I've nitpicked a bit, but I really have no reservations about the look of Food, Inc.


Food, Inc Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Going into a documentary, I'm never quite sure what to expect sound-wise. I was pleased, then, that Food, Inc. sports a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track that is more than capable. While there are no swoops, swooshes, or multi-channel pans, no thundering sequences of deep LFE rumble, this track does exactly what it needs to do—broadcast the information presented with unwavering clarity. Obviously, almost all of the dialogue was captured on location, and voices are clear and easily understood throughout, never once getting lost in any of the surrounding noise. There are few environmental sounds to be heard in the rear channels—occasionally you'll hear cows moo or stampede—but the largely guitar-based music regularly fills all the speakers with detailed plucking, warm strumming, and satisfyingly deep and round bass notes. The mix is weighty and nicely balanced, putting clear priority on the voices of the interviewees. There's not much else to comment on here, other than the fact that there's no hissing, crackling, popping, or drop-outs to report.
