The Ghost Writer Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Ghost Writer pens a flawless masterpiece of a high definition transfer. Framed at 2.34:1 and presented in 1080p, Roman Polanski's picture looks fantastic on Blu-ray from every angle. This is an immaculately clean, crisp, clear, and perfectly-defined image that boasts exceptional depth, detailing, and color. Slight grain is retained to give the picture a strong film-like appearance, and the print is free of any errant speckles, dirt, or other unwanted anomalies. Likewise, intrusive elements such as blocking, banding, and aliasing are never evident in the transfer. Viewers will note the intricate details on everything from fuzzy carpet and rough pavement to brick walls and the texture of paper, and to make matters only better, even distant and unimportant background objects like buildings and vehicles retain superior definition. Shadow detail is first-rate and blacks are superbly rich and defined, while flesh tones retain a neutral tint throughout. Colors, too, are exemplary, even if the film does take on a predominantly cold and gray color palette. Brighter shades -- a red bus, a yellow bag -- positively sparkle, adding another feather in the cap of one of Blu-ray's best transfers.


The Ghost Writer Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Summit brings The Ghost Writer to Blu-ray with a pristine DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. It's primarily of the talky Drama/Thriller type, but Summit's track nevertheless squeezes every ounce of vigor it can out of the material, and the result is a stable and oftentimes awe-inspiring listen that delivers the goods on a scale that ranges from robust bass to the slightest of nuances. The track is dotted with several strongly-realized atmospheric elements, including driving rain, honking car horns, blowing wind, and gently rolling waters, all playing seamlessly throughout the soundstage and creating a wonderfully immersive 360-degree sound field. The low end kicks in at several junctures, whether the lesser sounds of protestors beating on car windows or a jet engine rumbling across the soundstage. Music enjoys a seamlessness that's found in only the best soundtracks, yielding a wonderful sense of space that seems to eliminate the speakers and expand the soundstage well beyond its physical limitations. Supported by pitch-perfect dialogue, The Ghost Writer sounds almost as good as it looks on Blu-ray.
