Shadow Dancer Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Shadow Dancer was shot on 35mm film by Rob Hardy, who did the beautiful 16mm photography on Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1974. As Marsh explains in the extras, he and Hardy aimed for a "classical" style without excessive camera movement. They also seem to have taken great care to "flatten" the image, so that the typical modern habit of popping objects out of the frame, either by lighting or by color choices, is absent from Shadow Dancer. The eye isn't automatically told what is or isn't important in a shot, and in long shots with copious detail, the effect can be unsettling (which was no doubt the intended result).

Magnolia's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is a superb rendition of Hardy's photography, which was finished on a digital intermediate that presumably was the digital source for the Blu-ray master. While the source was probably the same as on the U.K. Blu-ray reviewed earlier this year by Dr. Svet Atanasov, the mastering is new, with a substantially higher average bitrate (35.91 vs. 26.08 Mbps). Magnolia's image is superb, with no video noise, solid blacks, exceptional detail, a fine grain structure and a subtly earth-toned color palette that looks nothing like the style of a typical studio film but beautifully captures the ordinariness of Collette's world (under overcast Irish skies) and the inability to distinguish between friends and enemies.

High frequency filtering, artificial sharpening, compression artifacts and any of the other usual suspects that can mar the Blu-ray viewing experience were nowhere to be seen. Whether or not the visual style is to your taste, the Blu-ray replicates it flawlessly.


Shadow Dancer Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

With one exception that cannot be described without spoilers, Shadow Dancer does not have big sound effects for the lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 track to showcase. It does, however, feature numerous locales with distinctive sonic signatures that are well-represented: the London Underground, the Belfast pub frequented by the McVeighs, a room in an abandoned building where Kevin conducts a harsh interrogation and the sterile, heavily monitored location where Mac recruits Collette, to name a few. The ambient noises of these environments have been layered in with sufficient care that the viewer may not even notice them without deliberately paying attention.

Dialogue is clearly rendered and, at least to my ear, the Irish accents are not too thick to pose any problem for Americans. If any viewer has a problem, subtitles are available. As he did for Marsh's chapter of Red Riding, Dickon Hinchliffe has supplied the tense, anxiety-laden score.
