The following are screencaps from Body Heat on Blu-ray. There are no direct comparison images from previous SD DVD versions, but feel free to download the full-resolution captures of the movie for your own comparison if you by chance have an older SD DVD copy of this film. Initially, Body Heat begins rather soft, but this is because Lawrence Kasdan wanted it this way. Film Noir naturally has a soft picture, soft lighting aspect to it for the creation of the atmosphere. However, what is intriguing, is Body Heat cleans up dramatically after approximately an hour. This "clean-up" is not noticeable unless you flip back and forth between the beginning of the movie and the end of it.

Body Heat Blu-ray Screencaps

I noted briefly on the introduction page and above, there was soft lighting present, and if you watch the first 10 minutes of Body Heat, then fast forward to the last 20 minutes, you'll see the difference. Let's take a look below at some screencaps BEFORE the change occurs.

Here, you can see the soft lighting which permeates the film, but not too much. Lawrence Kasdan does a fine job at not overly emphasizing the theme.

The following screencap is where the soft lighting and glow are noticeable. During night scenes, the effect works, but during day scenes it can be a tad distracting.

Now at this point, we begin to see the Film Noir effects of Kasdan disappear and start to turn into something else.

The shot of Mickey Rourke is in the day, and notice we don't have much of an afterglow.

Interestingly enough, we see the return of the soft lighting and afterglow rather prominently in the last scene.
