Simple Men Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Hal Hartley's Simple Men arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Artificial Eye.

There appears to be a a little bit of cropping on the top of the image frame, but it never becomes distracting. Detail and depth are very good, both during close-ups and panoramic shots. Clarity is also consistently pleasing. There are no traces of excessive degraining corrections. There are absolutely no traces of post-production sharpening adjustments either. Color reproduction does not disappoint - there is a good range of warm and very natural greens, blues, grays, browns, and blacks. Unsurprisingly, from start to finish the film has a solid organic look. Serious compression anomalies, such as heavy banding and aliasing, are nowhere to be seen. Also, there are no large damage marks, cuts, debris, or stains to report in this review. (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).


Simple Men Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Artificial Eye have not provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Overall dynamic intensity is limited, but depth and clarity are outstanding. The guitar solos from Sonic Youth and Yo La Tengo's tracks that are heard throughout the film sound particularly impressive. The dialog is very crisp, clean, and always easy to follow. (While it is unfortunate that there are no optional English SDH subtitles, the dialog in Simple Men is indeed very clear and easy to follow). Lastly, there are no audio dropouts, pops, hiss, or distortions to report in this review.
