Lay the Favorite Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Lay the Favorite was shot by Michael McDonough, the talented cinematographer of such digital works as Winter's Bone and Albert Nobbs. According to IMDb, the film was shot with the Sony CineAlta F35, which is consistent with the final product after post-production on a digital intermediate. Anchor Bay's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray offers a clean, sharp, colorful image without noise or artifacts, which does a nice job of capturing the daily life of Vegas without overemphasizing the glitz and glamor of which, at least as told in the film, Beth Raymer saw very little. The film's palette becomes somewhat darker and more monochromatic for the New York scenes, but otherwise the cinematography is not overtly stylized. The photography is naturalistic, and that's what the Blu-ray delivers.


Lay the Favorite Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The best parts of Lay the Favorite's DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack are those conveying a cacophony of voices shouting over each other, usually in Dink, Inc.'s offices. The mix effectively separates the individual voices so that they criss-cross, without dissolving into aural mush. Otherwise, the sound mix is functional and unremarkable, with little for the surrounds to do except provide a general sense of ambiance and add depth to the serviceable score by James Seymour Brett (Planet 51).
