I see a reference to a search for film depictions of underground escapes, from Deborah Smith, in the 22 Apr Screen-L. Sorry for the delayed response. No Screen-L respondent has yet mentioned (dir) Gregory Nava's _El Norte_ (1983), the true tale of a Guatemalan brother and sister making their way to the USA. It depicts at one point their trek through an underground sewer culvert, less than 3' in diameter, for miles beneath the US-Mexico border--- harrowing and unforgettable.
