Oxygen (1999) - Details


A masochistic cop (Maura Tierney), who hides her prediliction from her cop husband (Terry Kinney), gets involved in pursuing a kidnapper nicknamed Harry for Harry Houdini (Adrien Brody), who has kidnapped a rich woman (Laila Robins) and has buried her somewhere in Manhattan while demanding a ransom from her tycoon husband (James Naughton). Failure to pay the ransom within 24 hours will lead the kidnapper to abandoning the woman. In fact, the kidnapping ultimately is shown to just be a front for a cat and mouse game with the female cop. Dylan Baker also appears as the fed that is assigned to the case.
