Oxygen [AKA Oxygène / O2] (2021, dir. Alexandre Aja)

A woman wakes inside a futuristic sealed pod: she is running out of air. Like a near-future spin on Buried, this works hard to maximise its single location conceit and ticking clock/real time elements. A series of escalating problems and pressures well-handled, and a resolution that plays fair.

Here’s the trailer.
