|Yeah bitch, bottle episode.|
|Six Seasons and a Movie|
The idea of a bottle can appear in movies though it is often done for more of an artistic reason rather than a budgetary one. The films tend to focus more on human nature, similar to what Community does in it's bottle episode, One very simplistic example of this is a film called Buried. In the film, Ryan Reynolds finds himself buried alive. He is the only character to appear on screen the entire film and there is never an exterior shot. Every shot takes place inside the coffin and the same shot is never repeated.
In television, the bottle episode style of filming is a great way to develop character and keep the budget low.
