Ms. 45 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Ms. 45 was shot by James Lemmo (as "James Momel"), a frequent cinematographer for William Lustig. Reports have circulated that Drafthouse has restored the film from original negatives, but at least some portions have been taken from a print, because I spotted a few of the "cigarette burns" formerly used by projectionists to note reel changes. Still, the quality of Drafthouse's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is impressive, given the film's low-budget origins. Sharpness and detail vary throughout the film, but at their best they are strikingly good, and at their worst, they do not interfere with the story. The seedy New York streets and alleys of 1980, when the film was shot, have been preserved for posterity without the psychedelic overlay that Martin Scorsese and Michael Chapman gave them a few years earlier in Taxi Driver . The color palette is muted and dull (or, at Thana's workplace, pastel) in the early portions of the film, but as Thana's "mission" gathers momentum, colors become richer and more saturated until, at the Halloween party where the film reaches its climax, an abundance of rich colors are on display.

Visible damage is minimal, confined to a few scratches and occasional speckling. The film's natural grain pattern is observable and, in some shots, rather pronounced, but the grain does not appear to have been scrubbed away by digital means. To the extent the image appears soft, this is undoubtedly inherent in the original photography.

The average bitrate of 22 Mbps is adequate, given the film's deliberate pace and slow buildup to its sudden explosions of violence.


Ms. 45 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Ms. 45's original mono soundtrack is presented in lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0, and it's a perfectly adequate reproduction with good dynamic range, clear dialogue and a fine reproduction of Joe Delia's score, which serves as both music and sound effects. The track has the slightly artificial quality that fans of the period's exploitation films will recognize, as if many of the voices have been dubbed (and, in fact, several of them were). Certain sound effects are exaggerated to give a sense of how Thana experiences them, although it's worth noting that the gunshots are relatively tame, perhaps because Thana doesn't consider them a big deal.
