     Infinitely Polar is a whimsical look at bipolar disorder. The films stars Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers) as Cam and Zoe Saldana (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Maggie, a married couple with two children. Maggie decides that in order to keep the family afloat she needs to go back to school and find a good job. Can Cam handle the stress of trying to stay level while raising two kids on his own for a short time?

     Picture for this film is pretty fantastic, but not without it's faults. Aliasing is a brief issue when it comes to the brick apartment building Cam and Maggie live and banding is an issue at times. 90% of the time the film is fantastic with some slight underlying grain but the color is incredible and the detail and line definition is remarkably acute. Perfectionists will have trouble with the film transfer, but if your looking for a sharp picture with warm tones and boisterous color then your looking in the right place.

     As with most independent features dialog is key and it gets its due at times in the film, such as reverberation giving off an ambient quality to tones and gaging distances for immersion experience. Not much going on with side and rear channels, though not completely ignored. Still, the audio track does it's job in setting importance on dialog.

~Audio Commentary: Not as human as I thought it could have been. More detail going into technical stuff about the film then actually maintaining a streamline discussion on the issues the film presents such as bipolar disorder and treatment of the disease back in that specific era.

~Deleted Scenes: Honestly, the film feels so complete and perfect the way it is. This is basically just supplemental in my opinion.
