“The Unknown Known” is thought-provoking, biased, relevant and entertaining — a documentary of the highest order. Its bias shows itself in Morris’s interviewing style, which places himself as judge during the interviewee’s trial.

All of the filming, editing and special effects for "Jinn" were done in Michigan. Moreover, Ann Arbor played a major role in the movie.

We often turn to stories to cope with the harsh truths of reality, death being a big one. Yet, there are so many shows, movies, video games and books out there that use death cheaply, as a way to raise the stakes or to push the characters into a direction desired for reasons outside of coherent storytelling.

“Les Miserables” opened on Broadway in 1987. The show won eight Tony Awards, and now, through the School of Music, Theatre and Dance, the legendary musical comes to Michigan.

As a stand-alone episode, this installment of “Mad Men” is middling at best. But that’s exactly the game Weiner likes to play. It’s all about the build-up from here on out, and “Time Zones” does its job of laying the groundwork for the coming episodes quite well.

he band’s first record in 16 years and first after being reunited as a band last year, Do the Beast tells a story of dimness and obscurity, drawing on minor progressions and sweltering melodies to showcase emotion through every mix.

For some shows a circular plot works; Rhimes uses it on “Grey’s Anatomy,” and viewers are still responding after ten seasons. With "Scandal" though, it was time to move forward, questions needed to be answered and certain plot lines needed to be closed.

“Orphan Black” is an unpredictable amalgam of genres, managing to simultaneously be a cop drama, a Shakespearean tragedy, a crime caper and an involved (and often confusing) sci-fi mystery.

Arts at Michigan hopes to make The Accolades a yearly event to celebrate all of the different arts opportunities on campus, not only to recognize the work of the organizations but to also inform the student body of what their fellow students are creating.

Whats intriguing, and surprising, about the film is that, though it is centered on Rama’s efforts to successfully remain undercover and extract as much information as possible, it finds enough time to focus on the other characters and their personal desires and ambitions.

You won’t get algorithmic recommendations based on your preferences like Pandora or iTunes, but maybe that’ll cause you to take a chance. Your new favorite band could be just a shelf away.

There’s no way to know if, maybe, I’d be writing the same column as a sports writer, reminiscing about that day I chose athletics over the arts. But I chose the road I truly desired, the road I’d been traveling toward my whole life. And that has made all the difference.
