Episode Info:

Our fourth season of Filmography, on the films of genre-blending dreamer Tim Burton, continues with our third episode, "Burton's Whimsy". This week, CoS Film/TV Editor and host Dominick Suzanne-Mayer is joined by Editorial Director Matt Melis and Chicago literary performer Natalie Marsh. Together, they discuss Burton's shifting approaches to "whimsy" as a broad concept, the ways in which some of his most vivid imagined worlds have been met by diminishing returns, how Burton's conception of the fanciful has followed him through different eras of his career, and much more.
