Our fourth season of Filmography, on the films of genre-blending dreamer Tim Burton, continues with our fourth episode, “Pop Burton”. This week, CoS Film/TV Editor and host Dominick Suzanne-Mayer is joined by editor-in-chief Michael Roffman and The Fifth Dimension contributor Samantha Kuykendall. Together, they discuss the larger influence Burton’s style has had on modern blockbuster films, the speed with which he became confident in his filmmaking, the genre-changing triumphs of his superhero work, and much more.
