Keep the Lights On

 (2012)

Keep the Lights On Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

New York-set drama detailing the tumultuous gay relationship between documentary filmmaker Erik (Thure Lindhardt) and the self-destructive, closeted Paul (Zachary Booth). After a brief sexual encounter, the relationship between the two men develops into an on-off eight-year affair defined by heady highs, suffocating lows and deeply dysfunctional emotional patterns. In love but out of his depth, Erik struggles to deal with Paul's crack cocaine addiction and negotiate his own boundaries while remaining true to himself.

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

Keep the Lights On Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Keep the Lights On is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Music Box Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. A film (and Blu- ray) like Keep the Lights On demonstrates the fine line we reviewers need to walk when we attempt to offer a fair and representational account of how the image looks. Keep the Lights On was filmed in Super 16, and it therefore has a rather soft, grainy appearance that will no doubt grate on some videophiles' eyes. But should we judge the Blu-ray based on some objective "ideal" of how a contemporary film should look, or how well this Blu-ray recreates the original film experience? I tend to favor the second approach, but truth be told I can't completely ignore the first, at least insofar as some flaws in the actual high definition presentation may crop up. The general look of this film is reasonably sharp, which is a decidedly relative term given the source elements. A lot of the footage is indeed pretty fuzzy looking, without any overwhelming amount of fine detail, even in close-ups. Some of the location Manhattan footage exploiting exteriors actually looks quite commendable, with better clarity and sharpness, but overall this is kind of a middling appearing film that obviously is trying to walk a sort of quasi- verité path while remaining true to its more traditional dramatic framework. Contrast is generally pretty good, though some of the filtered scenes and overly dark sequences are notably robbed of both shadow detail and fine detail. This Blu-ray recreates the Super 16 ambience of the film to a tee, but some at least may find that a detriment rather than a selling point. My video score more or less splits the difference between the "ideal" and the reality. Your mileage may obviously vary depending on where on this particular continuum you place yourself.


Keep the Lights On Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Keep the Lights On features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix that may seem like a bit of overkill for a film that is this deliberately small in scope. By far the greatest bulk of this film is smaller dialogue moments, and this track certainly more than adequately supports such scenes. There are occasional bursts of surround activity, as in an early scene where Erik and his sister jog through Central Park, and a later sequence at a dance club. But the bulk of this film delivers just fine sounding audio that is nonetheless relegated pretty exclusively to the front channels. Fidelity is just fine, and dynamic range is about what you'd expect it to be for a small scale drama such as this.
