Critic Reviews for The Oak Room

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (38) | Rotten (4)

  • Cliché? Maybe on my part, but not when it comes to The Oak Room, a taut exercise in story-weaving and twists turned on their heads.

    April 29, 2021 | Full Review…
  • As the tales gather weight like snow on a roof, and intriguing correspondences accumulate, the impressive structuring tells.

    April 20, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Back and forth The Oak Room goes, without ever building the tension it ostensibly seeks. Instead, it meanders from tale to tale, and the writing isn't sharp or specific enough to sustain this kind of complex framework.

    April 2, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "A man walks into a bar" may be the classic set-up to a gag, but this time, the punchline will leave you reeling.

    September 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The original script by Peter Genoway is a trip in its own right.

    August 25, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The Oak Room is a small little thriller that demonstrates the potent power of storytelling. For those interested in something far more introspective that plays like an unsettling tale told around a campfire, it's is an engaging narrative exercise.
