The Departed

 (2006)

The Departed Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson and Mark Wahlberg star in Martin Scorsese's new crime drama The Departed. The Departed is set in South Boston where the state police force is waging an all-out war to take down the city's top organized crime ring. The key is to end the reign of powerful mob boss Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson) from the inside. A young rookie, Billy Costigan (Leonardo DiCaprio) is assigned to infiltrate Costello's mob. While Billy is working to gain Costello's trust, another young cop, Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon) is among a handful of elite officers whose mission is to bring Costello down. But what his superiors don't know is that Colin is working for Costello, keeping the crime boss one step ahead of the police. Each man becomes deeply consumed by his double life, gathering information about the plans and counter-plans of the operation he has penetrated. But when it becomes clear to both the gangsters and the police that they have a mole in their midst, Billy and Colin find themselves in constant danger of being caught- and each must race to uncover the identity of the other man in time to save himself.

The Departed Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

From the opening footage of south Boston's racial strife to the climactic rooftop scene and final moments, the color and contrast of The Departed ranks among the elite reference-quality BDs. The picture is solid and vibrant, with deep black levels and absolutely gorgeous resolution and color. Some detail was sacrificed in postproduction to give the film its modern feel. Grain and noise is at a minimum, which will please some viewers who aren't accustomed to film artefacts. As for digital artefacts, I see none.

Watch the cat-and-mouse scene where Damon is being pursued by DiCaprio in the dark alley. Smoke, reflections and shadows are rendered gorgeously. Dark areas of the screen do not degenerate into pixellation or motion artefacts. About the only possible complaint is that the picture gives up some depth and detail to digitally enhance the color and contrast, with some "glow" effects highlighting bright areas. Scorcese has opted for this look in many of his films, starting I believe with The Age of Innocence. It has become a stylistic choice to go a just a touch soft for more dramatic lighting and saturation. It may not please you if you're a demon for detail, but the effect is stunning while retaining ample realism in 1080p.


The Departed Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Not only does The Departed boast the best overall picture I've seen from Warner, it is one of the studio's few releases to feature LPCM. The sound is a revelation. Listen to Jack Nicholson's voice in the opening scenes as he shakes down the owner of a local shop and hits on the young clerk who works there. The menacing timbre, vowel sounds and cadence that long ago became Nicholson's trademarks achieve a new presence and palpability, albeit with a fake Boston accent. It is not only Nicholson. All voices have a depth and detail that is stunning and, unlike most DD tracks, utterly nonfatiguing. The music, too, has qualities that exceeded what I am accustomed to on most pop CDs. The entire range, from midbass to treble delivers a realism and detail that Warner should strive for in all its Blu-ray releases.

The 5.1 PCM also achieves greater imaging and superior attack and decay of such effects as gunshots, squealing tires and breaking glass. Though the rear speakers and LFE channel is used sparingly, the audio is disarming enough to keep you riveted even when the acting and plot twists are not fully satisfying. Songs like Gimme Shelter weave in and out of the action in characteristic Scorcese fashion, but with an improvement in macrodetail that proves ultimately euphonic and indeed bolsters the overall enjoyment of the production.
