The Reluctant Fundamentalist Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

IFC's Blu-ray release of The Reluctant Fundamentalist is very watchable from a normal viewing distance, but there are some noticeable compression problems when you take a closer look at the 1080p/AVC encode. In the scene where Changez and Erica first go to bed together, there are blotches of extremely visible macroblocking in the shadows on and around her face. In a few other scenes, fine color gradients are broken up by splotchy artifacts and the distinctive stair-step patterns of banding. Elsewhere in the film, however, these issues disappear completely, which suggests they are specific to the post-processing of particular scenes and not an indication of global, across-the-board compression. (The film does sit on a 50 GB disc, after all, so it should have plenty of room.) These concerns are certainly worth noting, but they're unlikely to prove huge distractions unless you're viewing the film on an exceptionally large screen or through a projector. For the most part, the picture is clear and vivid, with normal amounts of source noise for a film shot digitally in what looks like mostly natural light. Fine detail is usually visible in the actors' faces and clothing—though there are certainly some moments of weird mushiness—and the color grading is balanced and complementary to the mood of each location. This is a case where we should be wary not to miss the forest for the few compression-ridden trees.


The Reluctant Fundamentalist Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The disc includes two audio options, a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track and an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo mix-down. Functionally, there's very little difference between the two, as the multi-channel offering is exceptionally front-heavy, utilizing the real speakers only for brief spells of quiet ambience—tea house chatter, the chants and jeers of the student protestors—and reverb-tinged bleeding room for composer Michael Andrews' East-meets-West orchestral score. What the mix lacks in immersion, it makes up in rock-solid clarity and dynamic expressiveness, with clear dialogue, thumping lows, and crisp highs. There's not much that stands out here, sound design-wise, but the track has no real shortcomings either. Optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles are available in bright yellow lettering.
