In the Name of the Father

 (1993)

In the Name of the Father Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Based on the book 'Proved Innocent', by Gerry Conlon, the true story of the group of Irishmen dubbed the Guildford Four, who were the victims of a miscarriage of justice which saw them convicted of bombing a soldiers' pub in 1974. Daniel Day-Lewis plays Belfast wideboy and petty crook Gerry Conlon, who, along with his father (Pete Postlethwaite) and two friends, is forced into a false confession, claiming responsibility for the terrorist attack. 'My Left Foot' director Jim Sheridan focuses on the father-son relationship, as well as the long-running appeal against their sentences, led by their determined solicitor (Emma Thompson).

For more about In the Name of the Father and the In the Name of the Father Blu-ray release, see In the Name of the Father Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Daniel Day-Lewis, Emma Thompson, Pete Postlethwaite, Gerard McSorley
Director: Jim Sheridan

In the Name of the Father Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

In the Name of the Father is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Universal Studios with a VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. Perhaps surprisingly given that this is a Universal catalog release, it has not been DNR'd to death, and fine grain is still quite evident throughout this presentation. The biggest issue some may have with this transfer is what appears to be slight fading of the elements, something that often reduces flesh tones to pallid pinks. The image here is not overly sharp, and some midrange and wide range shots are actually pretty soft looking, but close-ups boast considerable fine object detail. (Even in its theatrical exhibition, In the Name of the Father was not a crystal clear looking experience.)


In the Name of the Father Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

In the Name of the Father features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track that tends to focus dialogue front and center but which offers some surprisingly immersive surround activity both courtesy of foley effects as well as the nice score (some songs were co-written by Bono). There's some floorboard shaking LFE in two brief bursts early in the film, but otherwise dynamic range is fairly muted. The scenes in the prison have some really well rendered effects that ably recreate both the cavernous open center section as well as the enclosed cell that the Conlons find themselves in. Dialogue is cleanly and clearly presented with excellent fidelity.
