The Conspirator Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Conspirator arrives on Blu-ray with a VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in 2.40:1, putting the lie to those who insist that VC-1 is only being used for old ports from HD-DVD. Redford and DP Sigel have intentionally shot this film in low light, desaturating the image quite a bit of the time so that it resembles sepia toned daguerreotypes, as mentioned in the main body of the review. They also consistently boost contrast in scenes where effulgent light streams through windows, which tends to make whites bloom and to give a somewhat soft and fuzzy demeanor, definitely on purpose. This gives the film an almost dreamlike quality at times, and the Blu-ray reproduces it splendidly. Fine detail is completely abundant in the better lit, close-up shots, with Wright's weathered (and utterly de-glammed) face a prime example. Because so much of the film is shot in dimly lit rooms, there is fairly evident crush in a number of scenes, and shadow detail can be quite murky at times. But overall this is a really gorgeous looking film if you simply settle into the look the filmmakers were going for and not insist on something appearing shiny, sparkly and new.


The Conspirator Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Conspirator's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix gets off to a literal bang with a brief Civil War prelude, and then with some great LFE-laden fireworks that celebrate the supposed end of the War. Surround activity is nicely consistent throughout this film, and what astute listeners will probably most respond to is how artfully the smaller rooms of the mid-19th century are recreated in the mix, with nicely discrete but gently crowded effects populating the soundfield. Dialogue is very clean and crisply presented, and occasionally in some of the larger group scenes scattered through the surrounds in a very lifelike way. Several scenes include nice pans with the pounding of horses' hooves and the like. Mark Isham's score is unobtrusively effective in several key segments. Fidelity throughout this track is top notch and dynamic range is exceptional.
