Torn Curtain Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

In the middle of the Masterpiece Collection's more baffling, issue-ridden presentations -- The Birds, Marnie, Frenzy and Family Plot -- comes Torn Curtain and its carefully tailored 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer. The movie may not be the greatest, but the image delivers and looks better than it ever has before. There are a few small problems (some errant noise and print blemishes), but nothing in the way of the debilitating nonsense that's yet to come. Colors and contrast, though intentionally subdued, are dialed in nicely, with well-saturated, lifelike skintones, vivid splashes of red, natural shadows and satisfying black levels. Detail is excellent as well. While a prevailing softness limits the end result, edges are cleanly defined, many a fine texture is showcased beautifully, and noise reduction and other digital techniques are used judiciously and transparently. As it stands, it's a filmic presentation, a striking rejuvenation and altogether an unexpected surprise.


Torn Curtain Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Hitchcock did as much with sound as he did with visuals, and Torn Curtain, for all its faults, is a masterclass in subtle sound design that elevates otherwise routine genre scenes into something far more unnerving. Or distressing. Serene. Exciting. Intense. Whatever Hitchcock chose to deploy. Thankfully, Universal's two-channel DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix doesn't deviate from its source; it only makes it that much more effective. Dialogue is clean, clear and perfectly prioritized, John Addison's punctuates the soundscape nicely, and every effect, however hushed or deliberately delicate, has been drawn out of hiding for all to hear. (Armstrong's struggle with Gromek is a highlight made all the more gruesome by way of the all too clear lossless audio.) The verdict? No complaints from me.
