I knew watching Body of Lies in the theater it would make a great Blu Ray. To paraphrase my own review, that Ridley guy shoots stuff real good. The locales from third world cities to deserts do indeed provide a dense pallet of high definition sights.

On Blu-Ray: Body of Lies

The Blu Ray has the clarity of a modern movie, so all the details dressed into the sets and authentic ones from locations are clear. There’s plenty of debris all around to see. The color pallet is realistic. Nothing glows unnaturally, it looks like you’re right there on the streets of Iraq with them. And there was plenty of opportunity to push it with the deserts and street bazaars. Even the reddish clay color feels real, but who knows, I’ll never see the actual Iraq.

To contrast, the American scenes have a sort of muted approach, like they de-emphasize the colors of suburbia. Still perfectly clear, but when Russell Crowe is on his headset, it’s like he’s lit with fluorescents. Perhaps that’s the emphasize he’s a desk man, or maybe I’m reading too much into it but Blu Ray allows you to nitpick those details.
