Graceland Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Graceland is a testament to the power that digital technology has placed in the hands of independent filmmakers. It was shot on DSLR cameras (the Canon 5D series, according to IMDb) by Sung Rae Cho, a Japanese DP who relocated to America and worked his way up as a focus puller and camera operator on TV, feature films and commercials. The consensus seems to be that one must have professional expertise to obtain good results when filming with a DSLR camera, and Graceland certainly bears out Cho's technical mastery. His images are consistently as detailed, focused, well-resolved and well-composed as many productions shot on much bulkier and more costly equipment. (In the commentary, Cho gives credit to rigs constructed by director Morales, whose early experience in the film industry was as a grip.)

The image on Drafthouse Films' 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is consistently finely detailed, free of interference and, with minor exceptions noted below, noiseless. The blacks, essential in a film where so many scenes occur at night or in darkened interiors are solid and deep; indeed, there are a few scenes where one might have wished (and the filmmakers probably did) for additional light. Colors are almost unrelentingly drab, which partly reflects a heavy reliance on available light and partly results from an artistic choice for a palette that suits the film's somber mood. The film's average bitrate of just under 24 Mbps is more than sufficient for the material, and compression errors were nowhere to be seen.

The one flaw in the image probably reflects the limitations of any film shot on DSLR, both in terms of the sensitivity of the electronic sensors capturing the image and the available lenses. Aliasing is sometimes visible on horizontal edges, usually of distant objects, where either the lens or the sensor cannot maintain a stable focus on the edge. The phenomenon is rare enough that it isn't a major distraction, but aliasing has become so uncommon in digitally originated movies that its appearance is now noteworthy. Otherwise, Graceland represents a truly remarkable feat of no-budget filmmaking, and the Blu-ray represents it well.


Graceland Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Graceland's original 5.1 soundtrack is offered in both lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 and Dolby Digital 5.1 (at 448 kbps). The dialogue is almost entirely in the Filipino language of Tagalog, although characters occasionally interpolate a line of English. The English subtitles include the fragments of English dialogue, not only for the sake of continuity, but also because the words are almost impossible for the unaccustomed ear to pick out from the stream of Tagalog conversation.

The sound design for Graceland is subtle but sophisticated. It places sounds appropriate to each environment in specific locations in the surround field, but doesn't call so much attention to them that the viewer is pulled out of the movie. If one doesn't stop and pay attention (as I try to do from time to time with each review title), these sounds simply blend into the experience. So, for example, in the opening sequence when Marlon enters the hotel room where Changho has concluded his assignation with the teenage prostitute, the sounds of rumbling city traffic outside the building are distinctly audible, but they are part of the environment. The room where Visel holds Elvie captive has a constant drip of water, which operates as a kind of sonic signature. The garbage dump has the usual scavenging birds. The film uses sound to help identify place and also to mark certain major events (I can't be more specific).

The moody score for Graceland was supplied by Adam Schoenberg and Steven Schoenberg, who look related but don't admit to it anywhere in their official bios.
