In the underbelly of lower Manhattan, Frannie Avery (MEG RYAN), a reserved English professor, becomes obsessed after seeing more than she should of an impassioned couple. After the young woman turns up dead, Frannie is questioned by a homicide detective (MARK RUFFALO) who draws her into a liberating but disturbing erotic encounter. As the body count rises, familiar suspects begin to emerge.



No features were included, so the old Sony DVD is the only option for the commentary and featurettes.


VIDEO – 3½/5, AUDIO – 4¼/5

In the Cut comes to Blu-ray from Mill Creek though this was already released as part of a 2-film set with Trapped. This is likely the same transfer and as such this looks fine in high-definition but not exactly exceptional as it is a darkly lit movie with lots of handheld camera work. Detail, when the image was stable, was okay while colors are very tampered down.

The disc includes a basic DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track which offers fine dialogue levels and the depth is more than adequate.
