 (1999)

The Talented Mr. Ripley Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Opportunity knocks in the form of a wealthy U.S. shipbuilder who hires Tom to travel to Italy to bring back his playboy son, Dickie. Ripley worms his way into the idyllic lives of Dickie and his girlfriend, plunging into a daring scheme of duplicity, lies and murder

The Talented Mr. Ripley Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, The Talented Mr. Ripley arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of StudioCanal.

The high-definition transfer has been struck from a dated master - and it definitely shows. There are a few close-ups that look decent (see screencapture #17), but more often than not detail and clarity are simply not as pleasing as they should be. Elsewhere, even where there is plenty of natural light image depth is seriously compromised (see Gwyneth Paltrow's face in screencapture #18). Various compression artifacts are also extremely easy to see. Color reproduction does not impress. Color saturation in particular is quite problematic - the yellows, blues, browns, and greens consistently look anemic. Film grain is present, but it is not evenly distributed and more often than it is mixed with small amounts of noise. Occasionally, light edge-enhancement is also easy to spot (see screencapture #12). Flecks and scratches also pop up here and there. To sum it all up, StudioCanal's presentation of The Talented Mr. Ripley is average at best. The film clearly needs to be rescanned so that a new high-definition transfer is made for a new Blu-ray release. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Talented Mr. Ripley Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, StudioCanal have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Unlike the video presentation, the audio presentation definitely pleases. The lossless track has a very good range of nuanced dynamic that greatly benefit Gabriel Yared's score. The jazz club performance in particular sounds great. The dialog is clean, stable, and easy to follow. There are no pops, cracks, or distortions.
