Solitary Man

 (2009)

Solitary Man Blu-ray offers decent video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Ben Kalmen, formerly successful car dealer, through his own bad choices lost his entire business. Now Ben's on the verge of a comeback, but some of the same motivations that led to his demise are threatening to take him down again. If Ben can just keep his hubris in check for a little while longer, he will be back as big as ever. But circumstances place him in very close proximity with the one girl he shouldn't touch, throwing everything into jeopardy.

For more about Solitary Man and the Solitary Man Blu-ray release, see Solitary Man Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Solitary Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Solitary Man yields a highly inconsistent, but never overtly disappointing, 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer. Clarity and definition often waver, with the image at times delivering a crisp, focused, and sharp image and, later, looking haggard, soft, and flat. Fine details are strongest around the exterior of the college that plays a prominent role throughout the picture; stone walls, pavement, grasses, leaves, and other odds and ends sport amazingly clear and realistic textures, with the image also capturing a fair bit of depth. Unfortunately, those hazier, less defined scenes pop up almost as often as the better ones, with darker shots in particular suffering from washed out details and pale blacks. Flesh tones also display a strong push towards an orange shade in many scenes. Otherwise, colors are generally stable and sometimes brilliantly rich, once again looking their best in those daytime exteriors. Slight banding and a few very minor compression artifacts are visible in a few select shots, but the transfer doesn't suffer through any other major bugaboos. A very fine layer of grain is retained over the image, but it doesn't do much to give the transfer a superior film-like texture. Unfortunately, Solitary Man doesn't quite live up to the same standards set by Anchor Bay's best transfers, but it's still highly watchable and, more often than not, free of any transfer-ruining detrimental anomalies.


Solitary Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Solitary Man features a nuts-and-bolts PCM 5.1 uncompressed soundtrack that carries the film's dialogue-heavy elements well enough, but could use some spit-and-polish in several other areas. The picture opens with a fundamentally sound presentation of a Johnny Cash song; the music enjoys strong clarity and spacing across the front, and while the lyrics seem a bit sharp, they play with that signature Cash cadence that's captured wonderfully in this uncompressed track. Additional instrumental music plays decently enough, never really lacking in any area but never impressing beyond expected format norms, either. Ambience often sounds muffled and indistinct; a party scene in chapter four delivers the basics and nothing but the basics, and even then there's a distinct absence of superior clarity that results in a failure to draw the listener into the environment. Fortunately, dialogue is consistently focused and infinitely discernible; no problems along the picture's primary element. Solitary Man's soundtrack isn't one built to dazzle the senses by its very nature, but it could certainly stand a bit more refinement, anyway.
