Interiors is the latest of the, at least to me, obscure Woody Allen films to find their way onto Blu-ray. The film itself is fine headlined by some fine performances and at least a compelling enough story.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


Interiors is writer-director Woody Allen’s full-throated venture into drama and presents us with a look at a dysfunctional family dominated by the controlling madness of its matriarch, Eve (GERALDINE PAGE). Her reluctant husband (E.G. MARSHALL) and their three daughters (DIANE KEATON, MARY BETH HURT, KRISTIN GRIFFTH) make doomed efforts to cope with Eve’s demands, while also trying to get on with their own lives. Caught in Eve’s web are their significant others (SAM WATERSTON, RICHARD JORDAN). But all bets are off when an ebullient stranger (MAUREEN STAPLETON) enters the picture.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0.5/5


The only feature included was the Theatrical Trailer.

Apparently there was supposed to be a commentary but was removed at the request of the studio.

 


VIDEO – 3.75/5


Twilight Time releases Interiors presented in its original 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. This is hardly perfect but as a movie filmed in the late ‘70s, I did find it to be above average with decent detail while colors tended to be on the muted side. There were a couple instances of specs but all in all it’s perfectly satisfactory.

AUDIO – 3.0/5


Along those same lines, the DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track is fine considering the bulk of this film is dialogue driven with some extra depth for the soundtrack/score. As with most of Woody Allen’s films, you’re really not going to get the full effect of HD audio.

 


OVERALL – 2.5/5


Overall, Interiors is the latest of the, at least to me, obscure Woody Allen films to find their way onto Blu-ray. The film itself is fine headlined by some fine performances and at least a compelling enough story. The Blu-ray meanwhile is basic with only a trailer and fine audio/video transfers.
