The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of My Father, CIA Spymaster William Colby

 (2011)

The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of My Father, CIA Spymaster William Colby Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A personal exploration into the life of the United States of America's controversial former CIA Director, CIA Spymaster William Colby, told through the eyes of his wife and filmmaker son, Carl. Through extraordinary events in twentieth century history, this consummate soldier/spy stood at the center of the Agency's most clandestine activities and operations. The film reveals the 'cover life' of this CIA operative, who followed orders and took on the dirtiest assignments until the Nixon Administration ordered him to 'stonewall' Congress about the CIA's past abuses, but he refused. This film reveals why, for the first time, he could not obey.

The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of My Father, CIA Spymaster William Colby Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of My Father, CIA Spymaster William Colby is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of First Run Features with an AVC encoded 1080i transfer in 1.78:1. This is a typical documentary that offers a lot of archival footage that is in various stages of disrepair, and so appropriate expectations must be set for those elements, which in some cases are sourced from formats as small as 8mm. Getting past that, however, one is greeted by a really solid looking high definition presentation that offers excellent fine detail in the talking heads segments and nice reproductions of a lot of archival photographs which trace Colby's life and career. Colors are nicely saturated in the color sequences (a lot of this documentary is in black and white), and overall the image is decently sharp and detailed.


The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of My Father, CIA Spymaster William Colby Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of My Father, CIA Spymaster William Colby has two lossless audio options, a DTS- HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix and a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 stereo fold down, though truth be told, you'll be hard pressed to notice any major difference between these two offerings. By far the largest bulk of this documentary is either Carl Colby's narration or talking heads offering pronouncements on William Colby, his life and career, so there's simply no opportunity for a surround mix to take advantage of any immersive qualities. A couple of post-looped sound effects (like gunfire in some of the Vietnam sequences) subtly open up the sound field, but it's frankly a very slight difference. Fidelity is just fine here, though there's negligible dynamic range since so much of this soundtrack is simply people talking.
