Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: There’s a new “Sicario” movie with Benicio del Toro. And aesthetes can rejoice to see Cecil Beaton in “Love, Cecil.” TV/Streaming: Last week’s new “Endeavor” was a fizzle; let’s hope this week’s isn’t. What? You read “The Looming Tower” — about the rise of bin Laden — and aren’t watching the terrific TV adaptation? Music: Judy Garland talks about Marlene Dietrich. Books: Steve Coll’s latest non-fiction masterpiece is “Directorate S: The C.I.A. and America’s Secret Wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan.” Sports: It’s heartening to see small countries — Croatia, Uruguay — doing so well in the World Cup. Finally: “A pun is the lowest form of humor — when you don’t think of it first.” — Oscar Levant
