I like Alexander Aja but not sure how it can stretch for a whole movie.

I like Aja as well so I’m hoping it’s entertaining but the only thing I was thinking while watching the trailer was, why does she need to recover her memory in order to breathe. Step 1: Get out of there and get some damn air! Step 2: Once you’re, you know, not dead. Then work on recovery of your memory.

Just a complete guess on my part, but after watching the trailer perhaps someone is against all the tests being done on Mice so they want the protagonist in this film to feel like an animal trapped in a lab and ready to die/be experimented on? Regardless, this looks like it could be quite intense and I may give it a shot.

Secret sequel to Ratatouille.

Hope Laurent has a underwear scene in this like she had in 6 Underground.

This was a nice watch. It's not a thrilling as Buried with Ryan Reynolds, but I really enjoyed it. At some point it really made me aggressive, because Mélanie Laurent was wasting so much precious time, but the movie paid off in the end.

Just finished watching and thought it was pretty awesome. I'd say the trilogy to watch out this sub-genre would be:

Buried
Brake
Oxygen


The latter being the sci-fi entry of the three.

Make it a quadrilogy with Phone Booth!

This was alright. I feel like 10-20 should have been trimmed to keep the pacing tighter.

Re: Oxygen (2021, D: Aja) - S: Mélanie Laurent - Netflix
 
Agreed that it should have been a bit shorter, but overall I dug it a lot, especially the third act, though I would have preferred
Spoiler:
an even more bleak ending where "Liz" doesn't make it.


My main complaint was when
Spoiler:
She realizes how many others were lost. First thing I thought of was "syphon their oxygen!" but she didn't come up with that until the last second? Tsk. Tsk.


Still... This was better than I expected.

Laurent was awesome. Loved how the story unwound and more details about her situation were revealed. Great little film
