Sisters Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Sisters was made on a shoestring budget, but it had a professional cinematographer, John J. Campbell, who has shot films for Gus Van Sant and Clare Peploe, and it should look much better on Image Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray than it does. Some of the issues may be inherent in the low-budget source, but not all of them. The film was shot on 35mm and, at least according to the credits, completed in post-production by traditional photochemical means. Scanning and color grading technologies were sufficiently advanced by 2006 so that it should been possible to extract and transfer a superior image from the source.

What we get instead is a relatively faint image with weak colors, inconsistent black levels, poor contrast and a thin layer of video noise that isn't too severe but shouldn't be there at all. (Note that these criticisms do not apply to a few isolated sequences that have a deliberately "distressed" look to simulate a dream state or a distorted point of view.) It's possible that director Buck was going for a cheap, quasi-grindhouse look, but if so, it was a mistake. Psychological thrillers work best when they look as lush and seductive as the budget will allow, which is how Hitchcock and DePalma made them. Sisters just looks cheesy.

Speculation is always dangerous, but it is true that Image released Sisters on DVD two years before it issued the Blu-ray. Sisters has the look of one of those recycled transfers where no Blu-ray release was contemplated at the time, and all the colorist's choices were guided by the demands of optimizing the image for a low-resolution format with a limited color space. In this scenario, when plans changed a few years later, the same master would have been reused, regardless of its limitations. The unusually low bitrate (18.50 Mbps) tends to support this theory, as the transfer would already have been "simplified" for ease of compression. Also consistent with the notion that this transfer was initially prepared for DVD is the blurry lettering of the opening and closing credits.


Sisters Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Director Buck notes in his commentary that he had very little time for the sound mix and that he chose to keep it simple, focusing on a few specific sounds in each scene. The Blu-ray's DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack is generally front-centered with clear dialogue (much of its re-recorded in post-production) and functional effects. Indeed, one of the most notable elements of the track is the absence of ambient or environmental sound and the general silence that pervades the surrounds. The spare underscoring is by Edward Dzubak and David Kristian.
