The Must List: September 15, 2006

MUSIC
1. ‘MODERN TIMES,’ BOB DYLAN
A new album (his best in years). A cool music video (starring Scarlett Johansson). And a deal with Apple (appearing in ads and selling his songs online). Don’t look back, indeed. Review >

DVD
2. ‘SEVEN SAMURAI’
Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 masterpiece gets a dazzling makeover (including a sparkling new transfer) in what is now a must-own DVD from Criterion. Review >

BOOKS
3. ‘WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE?’ BY SHARI CAUDRON
Subcultures that inspire rabid devotion — from Barbie collecting to ice fishing — are examined with wit and compassion.

MUSIC
4. ”ONE NIGHT ONLY,” DEENA JONES AND THE DREAMS
That scorching voice should sound familiar — it’s Beyoncé (does she ever sleep?), on a showstopper from the upcoming musical Dreamgirls.

MOVIE
5. ‘LASSIE’
The bitch is back! Seriously: This thoroughly charming film — featuring the much-loved collie — wrung tears from some of our most jaded writers. Review >

MOVIE
6. ‘ANDY WARHOL: A DOCUMENTARY FILM’
The artist who saw the art in artifice is the subject of a splendid movie bio from Ric Burns. Review >

BOOKS
7. ‘ABSOLUTE DARK KNIGHT’
Holy coffee-table book, Batman! Both of Frank Miller’s genre-busting graphic novels have been collected in a single deluxe slipcased volume.

MUSIC
8. ‘POST-WAR,’ M. WARD
Songs that are graceful and intelligent. Performed with honesty and passion. All drenched in a gloriously retro wash of sound. What’s not to love? Review >

DVD
9. ‘FAMILY: SEASONS 1 AND 2’
On DVD: It aired 30 years ago, but not many TV shows captured the rich complexities of domestic suburban life quite like this acclaimed ABC drama.

TV
10. VICTOR GARBER IN ‘JUSTICE’
Fresh off a five-year stint on Alias, Garber’s screen-filling presence finds a home in Fox’s spiffy courtroom series. Justice is served. Review >
