The Imposter

 (2012)

The Imposter Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A gripping thriller straight out of real life, THE IMPOSTER is an original film experience that walks the razor’s edge between true-crime documentary and stylish noir mystery. The twisting, turning tale begins with an unsettling disappearance – that of Nicholas Barclay, a 13 year-old Texas boy who vanishes without a trace. Three and a half years later, staggering news arrives: the boy has been found, thousands of miles from home in Spain, saying he survived a mind-boggling ordeal of kidnap and torture by shadowy captors. His family is ecstatic to have him back no matter how strange the circumstances – but things become far stranger once he returns to Texas....

The Imposter Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Bart Layton's The Imposter arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Revolver Entertainment.

The presentation is very impressive. There are a lot of close-ups throughout the film and virtually all of them convey excellent depth. Clarity is also consistently good. The panoramic footage from Texas during the second half of the film also boasts terrific depth and fluidity (see screencaptures #5 and 17). Colors range from very warm to neutral to cold, depending on where and how the footage was shot. Overall, however, the film has a very consistent organic look, not a raw documentary look. As expected, the quality of the very short clips with the archival footage does not match the quality of the original content. Excluding some extremely light banding, there are no purely transfer specific anomalies to report in this review. Also, there are no stability issues. All in all, The Imposter looks terrific on Blu-ray, and I am convinced that those of you who have been looking forward to see it will be very pleased with the technical presentation. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


The Imposter Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English LPCM 2.0. Also included is a descriptive audio track (LPCM 2.0). For the record, Revolver Entertainment have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

There is a very obvious gap in quality between the two lossless tracks. The Imposter is complimented by a wonderful ambient soundtrack, courtesy of Anne Nikitin, and when the music becomes prominent the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track opens up the film better. Fluidity and depth, in particular, are far more convincing. Overall dynamic movement is also superior. The dialog, however, is equally crisp and clear on the two lossless tracks. For the record, there are no problematic pops, audio dropouts, or distortions to report in this review.
