Outstanding an dark episode (9/10)
By Jack on 2015-12-31

DISTURBING
"Oubliette" is a very dark and disturbing episode, so disturbing that it was actually banned from France for a few years, because of a well-known pedophile affair in Belgium.

DARK LIGHT
The beautiful dark light.

VANCOUVER
The Vancouver atmosphere (forests, fog).

ACTING
The acting of the bad guy.

DIRECTING
And of course, the very dark directing from Kim Manners.

DARK IMAGERY
There are a few shots in the basement of the bad guy that are really creepy! One strong image is when you see an opening and that suddenly we see the eyes of the kidnapper!

MULDER AND SCULLY
On another level, Mulder has a strong connection to the case and mostly to one of the kidnapper's previous victims. The dialogues between Mulder and Scully are just plain great. They argue in a very intelligent way.

MUSIC
The music from Mark Snow is perfect. So perfect that three themes are on the only soundtrack of the series, "The Truth and the Light".

SUMMARY
In a few words, this episode is a dark thriller beautifully done, I give it a big 9 out of 10.
