Layer Cake

 (2004)

Layer Cake Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Planning to retire and begin a new life, Mr. X, a successful West End drug dealer, has been asked for one last favor: to negotiate the sale of one million hits of Ecstasy. Unfortunately for Mr. X, the pills were stolen from a Serbian drug lord who'll cut off his head if he sells them. And with a London crime czar promising to retire him permanently if he doesn't, Mr. X may be rightfully concerned about his future.

Layer Cake Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in pristine Mpeg-2, Layer Cake makes its long-awaited Blu-ray debut with a fantastic transfer of stunning accuracy and clarity. I was impressed with the sumptuous shadow detail and inky black levels that this encode handles flawlessly. This is oftentimes a very dark film, yet the picture never rolls off in the darker scenes. Compression artifacts are never present in the transfer and I noticed no distracting picture anomalies. Dimensionality is also extremely impressive throughout the film. The opening scene, featuring a stroll through a computer generated illicit drugstore, is probably the most colorful scene in the film; the multitude of vivid hues strike a stark contrast to the film's mostly subdued palette. While Layer Cake might not qualify as the epitome of demonstration-level video, it is an accurately and carefully encoded product. Having seen the film on several occasions theatrically, I was immediately impressed at Sony's ability to remain consistent with those viewings.

Layer Cake is an unusual looking film that paints a unique portrait of London's seedier side. If accuracy and the preservation of a film-like image are high on your list of hallmarks for a quality transfer, you won't be disappointed. Highly recommended.


Layer Cake Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sony has made a habit of providing outstanding uncompressed PCM soundtracks for their Blu-ray releases; Layer Cake is no exception. This is an aggressive and powerful soundtrack with an impressive level of subtle nuance. Dialogue passages are perfectly rendered and the film's modern rock soundtrack strikes a nice balance between some of the film's more violent scenes and its quieter dialogue-heavy passages. About mid-way through the film, there is a shocking fight scene that occurs in a London diner. As a strange counterpoint to the brutal violence on-screen, the Duran Duran song "Ordinary World" is kicked up to top volume on the soundtrack and makes its presence felt in all six speakers. It's a shocking and bizarre way to score a brutal beating, yet remains a perfect representation of the unique sound design that makes Layer Cake such a remarkably off-beat entry into the Blu-ray catalog.

Bass response is particularly impressive on this disc while never sacrificing high-frequency information. Surround activity has also been creatively applied and is used in abundance. Layer Cake remains one of Sony's most impressive early 5.1 Lossless PCM tracks and should prove to be pleasing to the most demanding audiophiles. Highly recommended.
