Kriston Capps leads the arts section with his review of the Foggy Bottom Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit, which he argues nearly justifies the flagging genre of public sculpture in the District. Chris Klimek reviews God of Carnage at Signature Theatre, in which he’d like to see a slightly more violent denouement. Lindsay Zoladz checks out the Arlington Central Library’s current exhibition of D.C. punk-rock memorabilia, which in documenting the homegrown sound also looks at its history of self-documentation. Tricia Olszewski pulls triple duty: She reviews Sound of My Voice, the second sci-fi film starring Georgetown film-program grad Brit Marling; Monsieur Lazhar, a Canadian film about an unlikely teacher that was nominated for an Academy Award; and Elles, a Juliette Binoche vehicle about a journalist investigating the secret lives of prostitutes. And in One Track Mind, Reese Higgins chats with local experimentalist Insect Factory‘s about his radio-obsessed new full-length.
