Frozen River

 (2008)

Frozen River Blu-ray offers solid video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Strapped for money and having been deserted by her husband, working class Ray (Melissa Leo), reluctantly teams up with Lila (Misty Upham), a widowed Mohawk Indian, to smuggle illegal immigrants across the frozen St. Lawrence River from Canada to the U.S. in the trunk of a Dodge Spirit. Both women swear each trip will be their last, but one final run across the river leads to a showdown with the law on all sides.

For more about Frozen River and the Frozen River Blu-ray release, see Frozen River Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Frozen River Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Frozen River was filmed on video in 720p and makes the transition to this 1080p AVC MPEG-4 transfer relatively unscathed. While I'm not often fond of video, the medium suits the subject matter here, giving Frozen River a gritty documentary vibe. As such, many of the issues I have with the film visually are by-products of the source material and not necessarily of the transfer. Video is generally poor at handling dynamic levels of contrast, and it shows in the overblown whites that make up some of the film's skies. Black levels are strong, for the most part, but there were one or two scenes (Lila in the tree, in particular) that were much too dark and had me craning toward my display to make out detail. Naturally, these dark moments also harbor the film's most intense digital noise. Like I said, though, video is an effective choice for Frozen River, and this is apparent in that first, brilliant close-up of Melissa Leo. The lines of her tired face are sharp, almost unrelenting, and her splotchy skin tones are rendered with unhindered realism. This is what it looks like when a broken woman cries.


Frozen River Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

This Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track certainly gets the job done, but I couldn't help but feel it was dynamically flat. Imagine the deep, bone splitting crack of ice as it groans apart, feet crunching through the snow at a hurried pace, the wind whipping violently overhead. Can you hear that? I can too, and I really wish it was represented more fully in Frozen River's audio offering. Still, I understand that sound effects are not always the chief concern during a lower-budget shoot, and with that in mind, the sound here completely suffices. Voices are clear and clean, ambient noises occasionally grace the rear channels, and the soundtrack—a haunting and reverb-heavy guitar drone—fills the sound field with an appropriate, melancholy menace.
