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.

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.

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.

Eric Rhomer's 'Six Moral Tales'

Because a lot of the time, no matter how much of a pillar of cinema — no matter how influential, inspiring or affecting — the film may be, it just might be a bit boring, a slow watch in the eyes of the stimulation-seeking modern viewer.

"White Boy Rick"

“Rick” doesn’t try to do enough for the audience.

"Sorry to Bother You"

The absurdism of “Sorry to Bother You” is a matter of form following function.
