The Sunset Limited

 (TV) (2011)

The Sunset Limited Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The Sunset Limited is a searing, two character drama that mixes humor and pathos while examining the relationship between two strangers who are brought together by desperate circumstances. The story focuses on two very different men – a deeply religious black ex-con (Samuel L. Jackson) who thwarts the suicide attempt of an asocial white college professor (Tommy Lee Jones), who tried to throw himself in front of an oncoming subway train, the Sunset Limited. As the one attempts to connect on a rational, spiritual and emotional level, the other remains steadfast in his hard-earned despair. As their philosophical debate progresses, each spar passionately to defend their personal credo and convert the other.

For more about The Sunset Limited and the The Sunset Limited Blu-ray release, see the The Sunset Limited Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Writer: Cormac McCarthy

The Sunset Limited Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Black and White may not come away from their conversation with greater clarity, but HBO's 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation certainly does. Every wiry hair, stubble stump, world-weary wrinkle, blue collar stitch, furrowed brow line, and leatherbound Bible crease is on display for all to say, as The Sunset Limited features one of the sharpest, most perfectly resolved images I've seen in some time. Grain is intact, edges are crisp and clean, fine textures are given free run of the place, and closeups are stunning. Delineation is excellent too, as is contrast and color saturation. Skintones rarely falter, black levels are strong, and every last color and primary looks exactly as it should. In fact, the only issue I took with the presentation was a few thankfully brief instances of almost imperceptible artifacting. Granted, I only noticed the blockiness in the background of three shots, but it was enough to catch my eye and send my pen scribbling. Fortunately, I didn't encounter any other significant anomalies; no serious macroblocking, banding, smearing, crush or, much to my surprise in a presentation this sharp, ringing or aliasing. All in all, watching The Sunset Limited is easier than mulling over the questions McCarthy poses. Much, much easier.


The Sunset Limited Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Two men talking in a small apartment. There isn't really that much to say about HBO's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, other than the mix creates a convincing, fully immersible soundfield and presents Black and White's at-times heated conversation sans any issues. Dialogue is clear, intelligible and gruffly grounded in Black's less-than-roomy apartment, and what limited sounds effects there are retain their integrity and believability. LFE output is restrained but resonant, rear speaker activity is subdued but reliable (particularly when noise from neighboring apartments plays a role in the soundscape), directionality is subtle but persuasive, and dynamics are delicate but more than suitable for the task at hand. Still, at the end of the day, The Sunset Limited is two men talking in a small apartment. No fireworks, no explosions, no sonic booms. It does what it does extremely well, though, and that should be good enough for anyone.
