Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story
Directed by Martin Scorsese
Martin Scorsese’s new Bob Dylan movie is fantastic. It really captures the crazy madcap Rolling Thunder Revue as a procession of wild wandering minstrels. Dylan’s performances are electric, his eyes wide and blazing. And it’s nice to have him giving modern day commentary in which talks without any enigmatic mumbo jumbo. Could he, deep down, be a normal person?

Sneaky Pete – Season 3
The con is on again, with one of the best ensemble casts in episodic TV and one more opportunity to see the late great Ricky Jay. If anyone belongs on this show…
