Two Men in Manhattan

 (1959)

Two Men in Manhattan Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Nighttime New York in 1958 comes to moody, jazz-soaked life in this rarely seen noir from the great Jean-Pierre Melville, who cast himself as a journalist on an ethically fraught mission to track down a missing French diplomat.

For more about Two Men in Manhattan and the Two Men in Manhattan Blu-ray release, see Two Men in Manhattan Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Pierre Grasset
Director: Jean-Pierre Melville

Two Men in Manhattan Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Two Men in Manhattan is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Cohen Film Collection with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.33:1. Cohen has been presenting this restored version of Melville's film in limited theatrical exhibitions, including several film festivals. The elements are in remarkably good condition, with very little outright damage to report. There's a somewhat bifurcated look to this film, one which is clearly delineated between the location New York sequences— which were often filmed on the fly, and look like it—and the more tightly controlled studio sequences, which were apparently done in France. The New York segments suffer from occasionally inconsistent contrast and often extremely low light conditions which even this high definition presentation can't completely ameliorate. The studio sections look excellent crisp and well defined, with deep blacks and a generally very nicely modulated gray scale. Grain is somewhat variable between the two locations, but looks quite natural. Melville tends not to utilize many extreme close-ups, working instead with midrange shots that often feature two characters in the frame simultaneously, or alternatively one character shot from a certain distance, and so fine detail is perhaps not as immediately apparent as it might otherwise be. But there are several great textures on view here, including the tweed jackets of Delmas and the sheer silk dress of one of the women the Frenchmen question.


Two Men in Manhattan Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Two Men in Manhattan's lossless LPCM Mono track (delivered via LPCM 2.0) sounds remarkably good, all things considered, with the great jazz cues Melville utilizes sounding lush and full bodied. It's a bit misleading to have our specs above list only French, for a lot of the film is actually in English, but it does seem that at least some of the film may have been post-looped, as there are very slight but noticeable differences in the fidelity and ambience of some of the dialogue. That said, there's no real overt damage here to report and everything is clear and well prioritized. Dynamic range is also rather wide, given the nice music and some of the urban environmental noises.
