Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “Nightcrawler,” a creepy trip through nighttime Los Angeles and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, is the must-see of the week. Daniel Radcliffe can usually do no wrong, but “Horns” makes me wonder. Television: Michael Feinstein lovers should watch his Rainbow Room special on Friday. The first part of “Olive Kitteridge,” starring my former neighbor Frances McDormand, begins Sunday. Music: Taylor Swift’s “1989” is unavoidable, so you may as well take a listen. Yannick Nezet-Seguin has helped revivify the Philadelphia Orchestra: start here to find out why. Books: My good friend Bryan Stevenson’s new book, “Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption,” is well worth your consideration. Sports: I’m so disgusted with the Giants and Jets that I may have to start watching the Knicks. Finally: The most popular costume themes for Halloween 2014: Guardians of the Galazy, Frozen, and Ebola.
