Stone (Blu-ray) – Robert De Niro, Edward Norton, and Milla Jovovich star in this grim drama about a parole officer (De Niro) who is persuaded by the wife (Jovovich) of a criminal (Norton) to let her husband out of prison. The movie opens with a man threatening to throw his child out a window when his wife tells him she’s leaving and it continues to slip deeper into blackness until the end. Great performances, but very depressing and bleak tone.

The Blu-ray release is excellent and the 1080p image helps showcase the muted colour palette very well. The 5.1 DTS-HD sound mix is good too, and the dialogue is very clean. Special features include a making-of featurette and trailers. Film *** Blu-ray ***

(3 out of 5 stars).
