Episode Recaps

As Willy Wonka, Johnny Depp acts like a 19th-century vampire who is halfway through a sex change; he’s a stone freak, but he’s also one of director Tim Burton’s classic crackpot conjurers. Burton makes the chocolate factory a place of blooming danger and wonder, and the result is a delectably sustained flight of fancy.
