Spiral

 (2007)

Spiral Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Portland in the fall is a solitary city. A city where a lonely man can lose himself, insulated beneath the cold, and the clouds, and the rain. Mason is just such a man. A gifted artist, Mason is never-the-less neurotic and reclusive, living a life of anonymity, working from a drab cubicle in a florescent-lit phone bank, repeating the same meaningless conversation with faceless strangers ad nauseam. Mason is never truly noticed by anyone, save his boss, Berkeley, not quite a friend, but a sole source of companionship in an otherwise isolated existence. That is, until he meets a gregarious co-worker named Amber, a girl struggling with her own loneliness and need to define herself. Amber's jovial demeanor and seemingly carefree attitude provides a sort of catharsis for Mason, and allows his true gifts to come to light as she poses for his art. It is an unlikely, and unusual courtship that helps Mason find peace for possibly the first time in his life. But as Mason's defenses lower, and the man inside is revealed, there may be something behind the surface darker than anyone expected. For not everything that is hidden should be found, and not every love is meant to be. And you can't paint over your past.

Spiral Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Spiral twists onto Blu-ray with a presentable but rough-around-the-edges 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. For the most part, details are sharp, whether the fine lines on Amber's denim jacket, the rough texturing of the bricks that line the interior of Mason's apartment, or even the bumpy artist's canvas that's seen in several close-up shots. However, some shots appear far too soft, while some backgrounds can run together and lack superior definition. Color reproduction fluctuates between stable and messy. In the better scenes -- for instance the cold and sterile office environment where the image is dominated by flat grays and whites; or some of the brighter outdoor scenes -- the results are suitable, but the transfer can and does yield messy or poorly rendered colors that seem to run together. Black levels are slightly mushy and noisier than most other segments of the film, and there's a slightly harsh, processed look to many scenes. Additionally, compression artifacts are visible in select shots, while flesh tones can appear ghastly and flat. Spiral is one of those Blu-ray discs that generally look fine at-a-glance, but further inspection reveals some unfortunate -- but not fatal -- flaws.


Spiral Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Despite the absence of a lossless or uncompressed soundtrack, Spiral delivers a fairly crisp, clean soundtrack via a Dolby Digital 5.1 offering. This is a predominantly dialogue-driven film, but there's also an ample supporting structure that makes this a fairly engaging listen. Light atmospherics are found throughout. Heavily falling rain pours into the soundstage throughout the picture; gently rolling thunder sometimes echoes through the listening area; and the general din of a bustling insurance company office where busybodies scamper about, chat on phones, and gossip with one another amidst the beeping of machinery and the ringing of phones all do well to create a palpable and realistic environment. Surround speakers are nicely integrated into the experience to further assist in the realization of the track's varied environments and sound effects. The picture's music -- particularly its Jazz pieces -- flow well about the soundstage with a fair amount of clarity and strength and with an inviting tone. Though not a particularly bass-happy picture, low-end extension is solid when called upon, lending to the track a good rumbling sensation that accentuates several scenes. Finally, dialogue reproduction is distortion-free. Though by no means a memorable or all that engaging soundtrack, Spiral delivers a suitably clean and trouble-free listen that's a good companion to the film.
