The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format.The imagery appears rather raw and induced with digital noise to create a drenched film look. The imagery itself is set in real locations and exhibits a generally natural color palette of earthy and urban tones. Colors never really pop but are rather more subdued. Fleshtones are naturally hued. Contrast is rendered the darker, overcast qualities of the imagery. Black levels and shadow delineation are decent. In keeping with the stylization, resolution is softly focused. The picture suits the dark mood of the storytelling and the setting of life in rural, small-town America. (Gary Reber)
