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?

When They See Us
Ava Duvernay’s limited series is the ultimate screw you to Donald Trump, who somehow felt compelled to vilify—through full page ads in all the New York newspapers—the five young men of color accused of brutally raping a woman in Central Park in 1989. A jailhouse confession from the real rapist and DNA testing revealed the truth many years later, but it doesn’t make the boys’ journey to manhood through incarceration any less painful to watch. Stick around for executive producer Oprah Winfrey’s sit-down with the Exonerated Five and some of the extraordinary talent involved with the show.
Bosch – Season 5
The latest 10-episode run is based on one of Michael Connelly’s more recent novels (Two Kinds of Truth), which finds the jazz-loving LAPD detective going undercover to bust up an opioid ring and teaming up with his courtroom nemesis to revisit an old murder case.
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…
