The Central Park Five Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.78:1 aspect ratio) presentation weaves a sophisticated web of film and video sources, with harsh VHS images of the subjects as boys smoothly integrated into the HD interview footage. Fine detail on the men is quite strong, offering a crisp read of skin details and contemplative silences, while artwork prepared for the documentary is sharp and effortlessly surveyed. Skintones are natural throughout. Shadow detail is healthy, rarely displaying distracting solidification, and fabrics are rich with texture. Banding is minimal. Colors are perhaps most impressive on the disc, finding street life, conversations, file footage, and pastel drawings registering with buoyancy and purpose.


The Central Park Five Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 5.1 Dolby Digital sound mix offers a more immersive experience than the average crime documentary, with meticulous attention paid to the music of the era and the toxic noise of the media outcry. Surrounds are modest but alive, pushing out scoring and soundtrack cues, while crowd activity is handed a light, circular touch. Front stage is confident with a blend of music and voice, setting the mood with classic hip-hop and scoring that doesn't overwhelm the interview segments, constructing an informational depth of sound that stitches film and video sources seamlessly. Conversations with the men in question are emotional and full, capturing the nuances of confusion and despair without distortion.
