In Film, Nick Pinkerton writes that Martin Scorsese's new Shutter Island is the good kind of insane (he also weights in on Lincoln Center's Film Comment Selects series), Tim Grierson sorts through all the various 2010 Academy Award Nominated Shorts, Karina Longworth reviews Jessica Hausner's Lourdes, and Nicolas Rapold stops by MOMA's Documentary Fortnight.
In Art, Robert Shuster's Best in Show features Leonardo Drew, Superflex, and Iannis Xenakis.
In Dance, Deborah Jowitt is at the Limon Dance Company's short stand at BAC.
