Classic Film Noir!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Double Indemnity [Masters of Cinema] (Blu-ray)  (Blu-ray)
Having been a fan of this classic film, this blu-ray purchase was essential for me! Good extras and a very good booklet enclosed. However, the transfer is not perhaps as good as I expected? I suppose you have to bear in mind that this movie was shot in 1944! That said, the five stars are for the movie itself. I`d give 3 stars only for the transfer. Still highly recommended.

Yeah, in parts the image was strong, but for the majority I just felt like I was staring at the film through a diaphanous veil.

We must not forget, it is film noir. It is suppose to be soft like it was filmed through a filter (because it was). This look is intentional. On DVD it is just not AS apparant. Hi def will bring out the ugliness in a not so perect filming.
