Since “Tenenbaums” in 2001, no working director has cultivated a more distinct visual style than Anderson, and you could count on the fingers of your right hand the ones who’ve come close. I’ve always been struck by his ability to bring all his many stylistic features together in such a cohesive, breathless fashion.

Glover has had a full career under the Childish Gambino moniker to primp and preen the set, giving us, the audience, a novel opportunity to observe what the true final form of an artist might look like — one whose body of work has been iterated upon and is now better understood, one whose grand finale has been set in his sights.

From talking to my driver taking me back to the airport, as well as to an old man whose car we backed into in a Walgreens parking lot, the locals of little Manchester, Tennessee love the festival and all the business it brings along with it. The signs leading into the town say things like “Birthplace of Bonnaroo” and “Home of the Farm,” an endearing local touch that eliminated my worry that the festival would be seen as a yearly invasion of outsiders, preying on small-town hospitality.

Hippo Campus opened Bonnaroo’s Saturday evening sets with an energetic performance that prevailed over the scorching heat. The Minnesota band played hits from both of their last two albums — Landmark which dropped in the winter of 2017 and Bambi that followed a year later — the sixty-minute set showing their range as a collective, while giving a taste of their development from one project to the next.

It might be the most average movie, but “Pokémon Detective Pikachu” is the most fun moviegoing experience I’ve had in years.

Zaragon West

Of all the new lofts and apartment buildings that have sprung up in Ann Arbor in the past decade, Zaragon stands out among the rest. Sitting in a great location, tucked just between the Ross School of Business and the Diag on East University, Zaragon’s combination of luxury and practicality shines. The building even houses its own mini-grocery store — one of the only places in town you can pop into for fresh fruits, veggies, and Zingerman’s bread. Also accessible from the ground floor is a small café, perfect for a lunch or a cup of coffee before heading off to class.

They’re grating and grossly exploitative, but I don’t know if I have a better recommendation if you just want to sit and laugh with some friends.

The Night Comes for Us

Is the aim of everyone with a gun in the movie comically bad? For sure.

Gael García Bernal in 'Y Tú Mamá Tambien'

At the turn of the century, Alfonso Cuarón, the Mexican filmmaker best known stateside for “Gravity,” set off on his cinematic tour of rural Mexico with half a script, a handful of actors and not so much as a tripod to hoist up his lofty cinematic goals. The film that followed, “Y Tu Mamá También,” was a pulsating revamp of the classic road-movie, the backdrop of late ’90s Mexico so present that it became a character unto itself.

Cera in 'Juno'

Cera’s characters are always approachable, because, for better or for worse, there’s not much intimidating about him.
