The Visitor

 (2007)

The Visitor Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Walter (Richard Jenkins) is a disaffected college professor who has been drifting aimlessly through his life. When, in a chance encounter on a trip into New York, Walter discovers a couple has taken up residence in his apartment in the city, he develops an unexpected and profound connection to them that will change his life forever. As challenges arise for his tenants Tarek (Haaz Sleiman) and Zainab (Danai Gurira), Walter finds himself compelled to help his new friends, and rediscovers a passion he thought he had lost long ago.

For more about The Visitor and the The Visitor Blu-ray release, see the The Visitor Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

The Visitor Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Visitor comes home to Blu-ray with a 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. The print exhibits some speckles, but the image is strong on the whole. Detail is more than adequate. Vale's office at the university looks realistic and settled, as one may clearly make out all of the books on the shelf and the various trinkets on his desk. In a subsequent shot, viewers can see the finer details of his kitchen. The transfer never backs away from being sharp and clear, with nice attention to every detail both in the foreground and in the background, where the image rarely goes soft. The Visitor is a movie that is simply a pleasure to behold for its simplistic yet engaging approach, and the strong transfer only makes it better. Colors are lifelike in most every frame. The film's lighting scheme is just a bit dim in places, but is never a hinderance to the transfer. Black levels are decent but not overly impressive. The film retains a hint of grain, though most of it is seen over the darkest scenes of the film. Flesh tones are natural in reproduction. The Visitor is another solid transfer from Starz.


The Visitor Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Visitor is far from being a sonic marvel, but the film's reserved soundtrack comes to well-rendered life thanks to the accompanying PCM 5.1 uncompressed soundtrack. Dialogue is sharp and precise, and the track is very front heavy. The various Djembe beats and other musical numbers shine through nicely with a wide open presence and an easygoing and precise room-filling sound. Various segments of the score blend nicely into the rears, the only time the back channels really come alive during the film. There is little in the way of environmental atmospherics in the film. Much of it takes place indoors with little to no need to reproduce anything but the basics of the soundtrack, the dialogue, and the score. The Visitor is not the sort of film that was made to engross listeners with an engaging soundtrack, and the presentation here befits the mood of the film.
