Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “Monrovia, Indiana” is the latest docu from Frederick Wiseman. As for the big releases, there aren’t any — nobody wants to compete with “Halloween.” TV/Streaming: The BBC series “Bodyguard,” popular in the UK, has come to Netflix. Music: No Halloween season is complete without listening to Verdi’s “Macbeth” starring Maria Callas. Books: The best-seller list offers the usual tripe (Patterson, Grisham) so I’m taking refuge in poetry: “The Essential W. S. Merwin.” Sports: The only good thing about Boston having been such a powerhouse sports town this century (currently, the Red Sox) is how good it feels when their teams lose. Finally: Lots of Trump masks at Halloween parties this year. But to do Melania you have to really dress up.
