    Compulsion Blu-ray Review

    [​IMG]

    The notorious 1924 trial of killers Leopold and Loeb, disguised somewhat as cinematic historical fiction, gets something of an unusual treatment in Richard Fleischer’s Compulsion.

    The soundtrack should at least be stereo. It was originally 4 track magnetic stereo and the European Blu-ray has a 5.1 mix.

    That's odd it would be in mono as you can stream it on Netflix in 5.1 with a very directional soundtrack. Also I had the DVD which had the directional sound as well (it might have been pro-logic or 4.0)

    The DVD was discrete 4.0. I've ordered the U.K. Blu-Ray and will report back if the 5.1 track is a remix or actually the 4.0 mix in a 5.1 configuration.

    Despite the audio issues that have been noted, I agree with this review's grading of this BD Release. Also, I enjoyed the audio commentary.

    Thanks for another fantastic review, Matt.

    It tempted me enough to get it, especially now that it is $14.99 at Amazon.
