Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: The early reviews for “The French Dispatch,” the latest from director Wes Anderson, were mixed, but a few friends I trust liked it a lot… If you’re looking for something big and beautiful, run to see “Dune”…And don’t forget the “Louis Wain” movie featuring a delicious Benedict Cumberbatch…TV/Streaming: I’m trying to give HBO’s “Succession” another chance. I understand why its fans are so diehard, and the ensemble is terrific, but I just can’t get into the storytelling, the mood, or the characters…Music: I was an early devotee of Coldplay, but the band’s last couple of records left me cold. I remain faithful enough to give a listen to the new album, “Music of the Spheres”…Books: “Cloud Cuckoo Land, the latest by Anthony Doerr, is my next fictional outing…Sports: As long as the Dodgers are alive, I will watch the baseball playoffs. Otherwise, it’s back to football and this weekend’s Man United-Liverpool match.
