'Closer' - High-Def Digest Review
Peter's review of 'Closer' is up. Despite it's matinee idol cast, this one is hardly a mainstream date movie. Still, if you like your romances with a bitter twist, you may find 'Closer' a dark, rewarding journey. This Blu-ray release delivers on the bottom line -- the picture quality is quite good, and the audio (while boring) is technically solid. Peter's bottom line? Worth a look.

This is an excellent film. Both Clive Owen and Natalie Portman were Oscar nominated. I have the Superbit, but strongly recommend it for you Blu-ray guys.Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

I absolutely hated Closer. I like Mike Nichols and this type of character drama, but unfortunately I can't think of anything positive to say about this film.Toshiba HD-A35

One minor correction for the review: The music video is titled "The Blower's Daughter", not "The Farmer's Daughter".

I have to dust off this thread just to mention how inane this movie is. It is less than the sum of its parts. The acting is great, but what unnecessarily complex characters. Just like a government has a library of overly complex laws - this movie shows how stupidly complex people can make things including the producer, writer and director! Really, what person when told when they get dumped 30 minutes of interrogatories about the other person that's f'ing him/her. It's like a big, silly game and look, everybody ends up where they started! It's hard to like any of these characters at the end, and if they weren't so stupid - they could've had an awesome 4-way relationship.
I didn't like this, and it just made me want to snap the disc in half.

If you like Clive Owen and Natalie Portman (who doesn't) and can tolerate Jude Law and Julia Roberts then it is worth owning. A bit slow but Clive and Natalie's interaction in the strip club will keep you entertained.

Yeah Clive in general made it watchable for me, it was the first thing that made me really notice him. And yeah any scene in the strip club is pure gold . The stuff with just Julia and Jude though was pretty excruciating.

One of my favs. Adult humor romance movie filled with betrayal, love and other things. This movie is DEF not for everyone but I would recommend it to anyone to see at least once. I think this is a movie you either love or hate.85
