Country music singer Tanya Tucker was still a teenager when she recorded her first hits in the early 1970s; and reaching the top of the charts at a young age soon led to problems such as substance abuse, bad relationships and stage fright. Director Kathlyn Horan’s documentary “The Return of Tanya Tucker: Featuring Brandi Carlile” uses the recording and release of a 2019 Tucker comeback album, headlined by modern alt-country stars Carlile and Shooter Jennings, as the framework for a more complete look at The Tumultuous Life of the Musician. This is a moving film about an artist trying to find her voice and purpose again, helped by two famous fans who sometimes struggle to convince Tucker that they know what they’re doing.

After a long break, the hit French adventure series “Lupin” returns with seven more episodes of high-stakes heists and sly social commentary. Omar Sy returns as Assane Diop, who has turned his distaste for the rich and powerful (and his love for author Maurice Leblanc’s gentleman thief Arsène Lupin) into a lucrative career as a criminal mastermind. The show’s winding plot jumps between exciting caper sequences and scenes exploring Assane’s past as the son of a Senegalese immigrant. The previous series of episodes ended with the hero achieving one of his main goals: taking revenge on his family’s greatest enemy. The new series begins with Assane on the run and planning his next moves, which are complicated by him becoming something of a national folk hero.

When all of his older children begin to die, Roderick tells defense attorney C. Auguste Dupin (Carl Lumbly) the story of his tragedy, marked by a life plagued by supernaturals. Flanagan and his writers borrow names and ideas from other Poe books; but they have set their saga and its thematic concerns in the present day, with a stellar cast that also includes Mark Hamill, Carla Gugino, Mary McDonnell and Henry Thomas.
