Man on Wire

 (2008)

Man on Wire Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Oscar-winning documentary by James Marsh telling the story of what has since been described as 'the artistic crime of the century'. On August 7th 1974, a young Frenchman named Philippe Petit stepped out on a wire illegally rigged between New York's twin towers, then the world's tallest buildings. After nearly an hour dancing on the wire, he was arrested, taken for psychological evaluation, and brought to jail before he was finally released. Following six and a half years of dreaming of the towers, Petit spent eight months in New York City planning the execution of the coup. Aided by a team of friends and accomplices, Petit was faced with numerous extraordinary challenges: he had to find a way to bypass the WTC's security, smuggle the heavy steel cable and rigging equipment into the towers, pass the wire between the two rooftops, anchor the wire and tension it to withstand the winds and the swaying of the buildings - all without being caught...

Man on Wire Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, James Marsh's Man On Wire arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Icon Home Entertainment.

Generally speaking, the overwhelming amount of the footage from this documentary looks very good. Obviously, contrast and clarity here vary quite a bit depending on the source materials that have been used. For example, some of the dated black and white footage does not compare well with the rest of the original content (you would notice plenty of scratches and debris). Still, one could easily tell that what hasn't been affected by time looks very strong in 1080p. Furthermore, I would also say that the 1080p transfer does as much as possible to enhance the color-scheme of Man on Wire (one must keep in mind, however, that there are still plenty of limitations affecting this transfer). As far as the quality of the actual print is concerned, I feel comfortable announcing that Man On Fire looks very strong. Finally, I did not detect any artificial manipulations that could detract from your viewing experience. (Note: Even though this Blu-ray disc is marketed as Region-B, it is in fact Region-Free. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your Region-A PS3 or SA without a problem).


Man on Wire Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (with portions of French) and English Dolby Digital 5.1 (with portions of French). Even though the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track offers only few substantial upgrades (mostly as far as the music soundtrack is concerned) over the Dolby Digital 5.1 track, I am more than happy to see that Icon Home Entertainment have treated this documentary as they have. This being said, the dialog is mostly crystal clear (again, excluding the portions of the film where time has clearly left its mark) and very easy to follow. Furthermore, I did not detect any overly disturbing cracks, pops, or hissings with the original content to report here either. Finally, Man on Wire arrives with optional English HOH subtitles and a descriptive audio text.
