Standard Operating Procedure Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 30Mbps), Standard Operating Procedure has a pleasing visual quality with some minor missteps along the way. Detail is crisply rendered throughout the majority of the production, but I felt the interview footage could have been a little sharper. Fine facial textures were absent, which might reflect a visual style chosen by Morris, but considering the size of the facial shots I expected to witness every crease or hair on the skin of the interviewees. The color trends in the film fit the style and mood of the production, with a cold, blue tone that matches the icy personalities of several prison guards. The brightest colors to appear in the film are the orange jumpsuits of the prison inmates, but even those hues lack the vivid pop we'd expect in a colorful Blu-ray transfer. Lastly, black levels were appropriately deep, and contrast never wavered in an offputting fashion. If your opposed to film grain, there's a light layer applied to the reenactment footage, but it's intended to be there, and provides a texture contrast next to the rest of the film.

Two minor complaints worth mentioning, are the presence of some artifacting on the fine lettering of playing cards that are occasionally used for effect and an instance of stairstepping on a diagonal line at the 46:30 mark (during a computer generated demonstration of the timestamps from the three cameras used within the prison). These issues are minor, but may become noticeable to viewers with a larger display.


Standard Operating Procedure Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are three audio options on the disc, all presented in Dolby TrueHD 5.1. Considering I don't speak French or Portuguese, I chose the English track for my primary listening experience. Going into the film, I expected a front-heavy documentary track consisting mainly of interview dialogue. What I found instead, was a surprisingly robust track that matches the sensationalized effects incorporated into the film. Whether we're watching a reenactment of guard dogs terrorizing prisoners, or a futuristic flowchart of the atrocities that took place, effects can be heard dancing gracefully from speaker to speaker. Not to be outmatched, we're given an enchanting musical score courtesy of Danny Elfman, who's best known for his work on Tim Burton films. Through the significant use of violins offset by a full orchestra, the bipolar score further elevates the emotional impact of the subject matter by getting under our skin. As the film opened, I honestly thought I was listening to the introductory musical number from a horror film (which may not be far from the truth given the subject matter) All in all, this is a proficient audio track that raised my expectations for documentary filmmaking.
