The Sex Thief

 (1974)

The Sex Thief Blu-ray offers decent video and mediocre audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

Casino Royale director Martin Campbell's first film was a low-budget sex romp called The Sex Thief, intended as an homage to the James Bond series. Irresistible to women, the roguish title character (David Warbeck) channels his inner Connery, muttering witty double entendres, relishing the danger of his secret mission, forever sidetracked by beautiful women.

For more about The Sex Thief and the The Sex Thief Blu-ray release, see the The Sex Thief Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Director: Martin Campbell
Starring: David Warbeck

The Sex Thief Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Thief steals onto Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer of a beat-up print that's essentially presented as-is. (What, did you expect an expensive frame-by-frame restoration for a low-budget sexploitation film? Yeah, that ain't happening any time soon.) The 35mm image is marred frequently by chunky white specks, small scratches, and errant bits of debris, but that said, The Thief looks better here than it ever has on home video, simply by the merit of being in high definition. I'm not going to say the picture is sharp—that certainly isn't the case—but the added resolution is easily apparent in better refined facial and clothing features. Color is as good as can be expected for this caliber of film, and contrast seems balanced, with bright-enough highlights and black levels that never unnecessarily oppress shadow detail. The main boon of Kino-Lorber's "raw" approach is that the picture looks completely natural and true-to-source—no digital noise reduction or edge enhancement here—almost as if you were watching the film in some dingy grindhouse theater. Watch that spot on the floor; I wouldn't step there if I were you.


The Sex Thief Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Much like the picture, the film's sound quality is subject to a good bit of source damage—a low hiss in most scenes, some harshness in the high-end, occasional pops and crackles, noticeable volume fluctuations in dialogue—but the disc's uncompressed DTS-HD Master Audio mono track is listenable enough. Mostly. In the sequence with the washed-up Hollywood starlet, the low hiss rises to a distracting buzz that lasts for at least two or three minutes. It's almost bad enough to make you want to turn the volume all the way down until the scene is over. It would've been nice if this buzz—and some of the other audio quirks—could've been attenuated somewhat, but it is what it is. Dialogue, at least, remains fairly easy to understand, which is good considering that Kino have once again neglected to include any subtitle options. I do have to say—I kind of love the film's music, which is a mix of the stereotypically 1970s bow-chick-a-bow-wow porno fare with very British, very twee instrumentation—flutes and quietly strummed guitars and pitter- patter drums. Imagine Belle & Sebastian scoring a blue movie.
