Internal Affairs Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Internal Affairs was photographed by the late John A. Alonzo, who shot Chinatown, one of the greatest L.A. noirs of all time. Regarded as one of the best handheld cameramen in the business, Alonzo's skill is demonstrated in many of Internal Affairs's most intense scenes, where close encounters between individuals seethe with the potential for violence (and often erupt).

Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray (from a Paramount transfer) is something of a mixed bag. It has wonderful color saturation and deep blacks and blues, which are essential in a film where patrolmen in "black and whites" are a constant presence. As director Brian De Palma has said many times, corruption always look fantastic, and Alonzo (who shot Scarface for De Palma) makes Dennis Peck's world look warm and inviting, in contrast to the troubled household of Van Stretch or the chilly mansion of the Arrocas (John Kapelos and Katherine Borowitz), a wealthy couple who hire Peck for some dirty work and get more than they bargained for.

Where the image falls short is in the area of sharpness and detail. It's difficult to determine whether the issue is source-based or a product of transfer and/or mastering. Despite having started in TV and, late in his career, pioneered filming in HD, Alonzo shot films for the big screen, and he would have had no patience for the current Blu-ray enthusiasts' preoccupation for flyspecking screenshots. Still, there are undeniably shots and scenes in Internal Affairs that appear softer than they should be, and it is troubling to see Warner crowd this 115-minute film onto a BD-25 with an unusually low average bitrate of 19.43 Mbps. No compression artifacts leap out, which leads one to question whether some judicious detail stripping might have occurred, but there's no way to be sure.


Internal Affairs Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Internal Affairs was released to theaters in Dolby Stereo, but the soundtrack was remixed for 5.1 when the film was released on DVD in 1999. The Blu-ray appears to contain the same remix, presented in lossless DTS-HD MA. It's a largely front-oriented mix, but it has never sounded better, with a truly impressive presentation of the film's dynamic and atmospheric score composed by Figgis, Brian Banks (Young Guns) and Anthony Marinelli (the underrated 2 Days in the Valley). As the music shifts from brooding detective noir to Latin beats to suspense mode to sudden short bursts of action rhythms, the music almost feels like the film's narrator. On the Blu-ray's track, the left and right front speakers carry most of the score's weight, with the surrounds used as support. The dynamic range is wide, and the instruments are clear and distinct. The dialogue is also clear, and the ambiance of various environments can be heard, when it is not being overpowered (deliberately) in the mix by the musical accompaniment.

Several scenes involve gunplay, and the shots have impact without being overwhelming. This is a psychological thriller, not an action movie.
