Reign Over Me

 (2007)

Reign Over Me Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Former college roomates Charlie Fineman and Alan Johnson meet up again by chance on a Manhattan street corner. Five years after losing his family on 9/11, Charlie — once a successful dentist — has retreated from his life, and Alan is stunned to see the changes in his formerly gregarious friend. At the same time, Alan — who should be enjoying his beautiful wife, children and career — is overwhelmed by his responsibilities. Their rekindled relationship becomes a lifeline for the two men, who are both in need of a trusted friend at this pivotal moment in their lives.

For more about Reign Over Me and the Reign Over Me Blu-ray release, see Reign Over Me Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Adam Sandler, Don Cheadle, Jada Pinkett Smith, Liv Tyler, Saffron Burrows, Donald Sutherland

Reign Over Me Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Although the credits list a "negative cutter" and a logo for Kodak film, director Binder confirms in the "Behind the Reign" interview that the film was shot on the Panasonic Genesis digital camera (whose logo also appears in the credits). Like other advocates of digital photography, Binder is enthusiastic about its ability to capture substantial detail of a cityscape by night, with significant depth of field and without the need for huge lighting rigs. The many late night scenes of Charlie riding through nearly deserted city streets that stretch into the distance could not have been obtained other than through digital cinematography. (The cinematographer was Russ Alsobrook, with whom Binder had worked on The Mind of the Married Man and who would go on to shoot Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Superbad.)

If indeed any segments were shot on film, they were homogenized with the digital photography at the digital intermediate stage. Sony's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is an early example of the fine work that would quickly become the norm for Sony's output on the format. Black levels are solid, detail is excellent, and the only artifacting on display is the occasional digital noise that is a product of the original image capture (usually on a street or other surface in the distance). Another studio might have decreed the removal of all such noise at the expense of image detail, but Sony doesn't work that way.

The film's palette tends toward cool blues, which is consistent both with the winter season and with the chilly emotional temperatures that both male lead characters find themselves maintaining (or trying to maintain). Within this overall framework, certain environments are notable for their warm colors, e.g., Angela Oakhurst's office.


Reign Over Me Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

This being an early Sony release, the lossless track is PCM 5.1. (Sony would later experiment with Dolby TrueHD before settling on its current standard of DTS-HD Master Audio.) Although cityscapes, dentists' offices and New York apartments with music rooms and massive videogame setups would seem to present natural opportunities for surround effects, Binder doesn't exploit them. This may be a function of the story, but more likely it results from the limited budget (reportedly $20 million). Most of the funds allocated to the soundtrack were probably spent on acquiring the songs essential to creating Charlie's private world, since his taste in music is specific and the subject of many arguments with Alan. The title song is heard in two versions: the original track from The Who's Quadrophenia and a faithful cover by Pearl Jam. Bruce Springsteen's album The River plays a crucial role, as do the Graham Nash song "Simple Man" and the Pretenders' rendition of Ray Davies' "Stop Your Sobbing". Without these songs, the film would be greatly diminished; their importance far outranks that of any surround effect. (They also sound great.) The moody underscore is by Rolfe Kent, whose extensive credits include Sideways, Legally Blonde and Up in the Air.

Dialogue is always clear, but, equally important, so are the details of the actors' performances. An actor himself, Binder understands how to write for actors to fill in the blanks. A classic example is the scene where Don Cheadle's Alan storms out of his apartment to take a walk, and his wife tells him to say hello to Charlie. Alan keeps walking back into the room to deny that he's visiting Charlie, but he can't finish a sentence. If you looked at the words on the page, they wouldn't add up to much, but the scene as played by Cheadle and Pinkett Smith becomes a sketch in miniature of the current state of the Johnson marriage.

The highest compliment I can pay to the soundtrack for Reign Over Me is that it's transparent. You forget you're listening to a movie soundtrack and just listen to what's happening.
