The Brass Teapot Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Definitive information about the shooting format for The Brass Teapot was not available, but the delicate hues of cinematographer Peter Simonite's subtly surreal photography were finalized on a digital intermediate, from which Magnolia Home Video's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray appears to have been sourced. Simonite, an experienced camera operator and second unit DP, has lit much of the film as if he were photographing a commercial or a catalog, establishing from the outset that Alice and John are ready-made consumers just waiting for the means to furnish their lives with every available luxury good. (Their credit cards are already maxed out.) Even their darkest deeds are committed in bright places surrounded by cheerful hues. Areas of solid black are rare, but when they occur, the blacks are true and well-rendered.

Detail is impressive throughout, whether it's the dented and poorly repaired body of the ancient Pinto that Alice and John own at the outset or the increasingly eye-catching array of vehicles and goods they acquire as their fortunes rise. The makeup reflecting their various injuries along the way is also convincing without being revolting. (In real life, they'd look a lot worse.) Especially with the teapot's frequent sprays of currency and other actions sequences, the healthy bitrate of 31.99 Mbps is a welcome aid to avoiding motion artifacts. Magnolia's commitment to visual quality has not abated.


The Brass Teapot Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The most important sound effects on The Brass Teapot's lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 track—they're the effects that director Mosley discusses at length in her commentary—are those of the teapot itself. As a semi-animate object, it vibrates, reacts to human touch and make a variety of sounds when it produces money, sometimes a quiet tinkle, and sometimes a great whoosh of bills shooting out. (Nearly all of these visual effects were practical.) The Blu-ray's soundtrack neatly differentiates among the teapots various "speeches", which is no small trick when you consider that they're usually layered in with shrieks, yelps and other cries of pain (not to mention the physical sounds of mayhem).

Otherwise, The Brass Teapot has a generally front-oriented mix, with the surrounds providing a general sense of ambiance and support for the musical track, which is composed of underscoring by Andrew Hewitt (Submarine) and a quirky selection of songs ranging from a cover of "I Fought the Law" by the Strummers to Beck's Timebomb, several songs by the Amoeba People (including "Demon Lover") and several by Lindsay Jones. Though not demo material, the track is effective for the film.
