THE BIG SLEEP: Blu-ray Review

February 23, 2016 – THE BIG SLEEP is a dark film, in both its subject matter and its appearance; much of it takes place at night and in dimly lit rooms. WAC’s 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray features appropriately deep blacks, which, on a properly calibrated display, have gradations that reveal fine detail . . . The film’s lighting style often accentuates the film’s grain texture, but WAC and MPI have treated the grain respectfully and resolved it with clarity.
