Showdown

Tight Spot

Best films set in confined spaces

Add a list or tag with showdown:confined

Letterboxd Showdown № 7 is Confined Spaces, films set in really tight spots—e.g. a room, cave, shark cage, yacht, lifeboat, bus—for the majority of the story. To us, a confined space is smaller than a house or large spaceship or Titanic cruise liner. (We’ll do single-location films at a later date. Films in the Confined Spaces category may also be eligible for the Single Location category, but not necessarily vice versa!)
