"Oxygen" takes us on a thrilling voyage and lands at an unexpected destination.

May 20, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

What Oxygen's really about doesn't pack enough of a punch, but it is an especially well shot contained thriller with a phenomenal lead performance from Mélanie Laurent.

May 19, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

There's a twist midway that only the most naive viewer will not see coming (we know exactly where she is, from the opening frame), but it's good wholesome fun, and Laurent certainly brings conviction to an otherwise paper-thin role.

Decent tech specs, including some nifty shots from veteran horror cinematographer Maxime Alexandre, offset the slightly cobbled-together feel.
