SVU #143: To The Bone / When TV Creators Make Movies

In the era of Peak TV, it’s become increasingly common to see filmmakers crossing over to work on the small screen. But what about when it’s the other way around? On this episode of the Filmspotting: Streaming Video Unit podcast, Matt and Alison look at the film debuts of some famous television creators, and talk about how well their approach ends up translating. It’s all inspired by their main review, of Netflix’s original movie TO THE BONE, the directorial debut of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and UNREAL’s Marti Noxon.
