Possession Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.67:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Andrzej Zulawski's Possession arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Second Sight Films.

Excluding some light banding that I spotted (the most obvious example being early into the film, in the sequence where Sam Neill and Isabelle Adjani's characters meet in front of the apartment complex) as well as some low noise that occasionally pops up, the technical presentation of this once quite controversial film is indeed very impressive. It is also quite the revelation. There is an entirely new color scheme that apparently reinstates the type of look Andrzej Zulawski desired and all visual effects, most notably solarization enhancements, that were added to the U.S. re-cut version of the film are now completely removed. Needless to say, if you are familiar only with the U.S. re-cut version of Possession, more than likely you are going to be quite surprised by the look of this new Director's Cut of the film.

Image depth and clarity are very good. The outdoor footage, in particular, looks quite impressive. The heavy and rather depressing dark grays, blues, browns, and blacks of West Berlin are very effectively reproduced (see screencaptures # 2 and 5). Contrast levels fluctuate, especially during the indoor footage, but the rapid balance shifts are clearly intended. (Compare screencaptures #3 and 4 to see what some of these contrast fluctuations look like). There are no traces of excessive degraining corrections. Also, there are no traces of problematic sharpening adjustments. Unsurprisingly, Possession has a strong organic look. Lastly, there are no large damage marks, cuts, debris, warps, or stains to report in this review. All in all, while I think that there is some room for minor improvements, the current presentation of Possession is indeed enormously satisfying. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Possession Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Second Sight Films have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

I was very much looking forward to experiencing this film with a lossless track as there are a number of very intense scenes in it which I knew would be a lot more powerful on Blu-ray. I was definitely not disappointed. The famous miscarriage subway scene, in particular, cannot possibly be described with simple words. There are some minor fluctuations in terms of dynamics and intensity, but they have everything to do with the film's original sound design. The dialog is clean, stable, and easy to follow. There are no audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
