Sexy Beast

 (2000)

Sexy Beast Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Ex-con Gary "Gal" Dove has served his time behind bars and is blissfully retired to a Spanish villa paradise with a wife he adores. The idyll is shattered by the arrival of his nemesis Don Logan, intent on persuading Gal to return to London for one last big job. Desperate not to sacrifice his enchanted existence, Dove is drawn into a shocking and explosive battle of wills with Logan, a battle that redefines his notions of love, honor and commitment.

Sexy Beast Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Sexy Beast is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Twilight Time (licensing masters provided by Fox) with AVC encoded 1080p transfers (yes, transfers) in both 2.35:1 and 1.78:1. It's odd that a non-theatrical aspect ratio is included here, though videophiles will know that all too often 1.85:1 films are often either presented outright in 1.78:1 or overscanned to appear that way. IMDb lists the OAR as 2.35:1, and my assumption is 2.35:1 is correct insofar as theatrical exhibition goes, though the 1.78:1 framing is not inherently problematic in any major way. The 2.35:1 framing obviously has quite a bit more information on the sides, with a bit less on the top and bottom, while the 1.78:1 framing reverses those aspects (no pun intended). (I have included screenshots from both versions so that readers can compare the "looks" of both of them.)

In terms of the actual quality of these transfers, the elements here are perhaps just slightly more problematic than with the bulk of newer Twilight Time catalog releases, with a bit more specks, dust, and even white spots cropping up from time to time. The overall look here is often quite soft, especially in midrange shots (see the screenshots of Kingsley walking in the airport for a good example). Balancing these issues is really gorgeously saturated color, though it's obvious that Glazer and DP Ivan Bird filtered many sequences, giving them odd tints at times (the opening, with its almost ultraviolet appearance is a good example, as is the great sequence where Don lets Gal in on the plot, which includes rapid cutting between blue and red hued scenes). Fine detail is good in close-ups. No overtly obvious compression artifacts were noticed.


Sexy Beast Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sexy Beast follows its video protocol by offering two choices in the audio department as well, DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 (presumably recreating the film's original audio mix) and a nicely done DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix that capably opens up the film's fantastic music, while giving some extra oomph to the occasional foley effect (notably the great rumble of the boulder in the opening sequence). Dialogue is very cleanly presented, though the Cockney accents can be a bit thick to cut through (there are optional subtitles available, which are a major help in this regard). The source cues in the score are wonderful, running the gamut from Dean Martin singing "Sway" to Henry Mancini's gorgeously lush instrumental "Lujon", which became a well known hit for Brasil '66 as "Slow Hot Wind". Fidelity is excellent throughout both of these tracks.
