Secretary Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

I never saw Secretary in its SD-DVD incarnation, but I was frankly a little underwhelmed with this Blu-ray's AVC encoded 1080p image (in 1.78:1). Don't get me wrong, there's nothing egregiously horrible here, but there is an overall softness, with some very noticeable grain (especially in the outdoor shots) which makes this a less than pristine high definition image. Colors are generally very strong, with excellent saturation, and at times, sharpness takes an extreme uptick, as odd as that may sound. Close-ups of Spader and Gyllenhaal provide a wealth of detail and some nice tracking shots of flowers look spectacular. But midrange and far shots generally are soft, giving this Blu-ray the appearance of an upconverted DVD at times. Lovers of this film will probably have nothing to complain about. Others coming to this new may have to set their expectations just a tad lower than usual to accept the film (which was after all shot on a relatively miniscule budget) as it comes.


Secretary Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Does Secretary really require its DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 lossless track? Frankly, I'm not even sure the soundtrack as it is warrants much of a surround track to begin with, but be that as it may, we do indeed get a 7.1 mix here, for what it's worth. This isn't a film that screams sonic immersion, though there are some very nice surround effects, including some great gurgling water noises when Lee is floating in her parents' pool and, later, when she makes her way through a monsoon-like rainstorm. Nice environmental ambient effects are subtle, but apparent, in many of the (brief) outdoor shots. For the most part, though, this is a small scale, intimate affair consisting mostly of dialogue between Lee and Edward, as well as Lee's voiceover. The DTS track is of course flawless in this regard, providing crisp and clean sound with excellent fidelity.
