In this week's Village Voice, we present the fourth annual Village Voice Jazz Poll: Francis Davis on the winners, led by Vijay Iyer's Historicity and Darcy James Argue's victory as best debut, for Infernal Machines; Tom Hull's own top 10, led by the Matthew Shipp Trio; detailed poll results; and a eulogy for those who died during the year.

In Film, J. Hoberman files his final review before a two-month leave on Michael Haneke's The White Ribbon--the director's "best ever"--while Nick Pinkerton praises Lee Chung-ryoul's Old Partner, a tale of marriage, labor, and love. Plus reviews of The Chaser, The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, and A Film with Me in It.

In Art, Christian Viveros-Faune is at Gabriel Orozco's MOMA show.

In Theater, Michael Feingold reviews recent productions of Orphans' Home Cycle, Part 2, Misalliance, and Ernest in Love, while Alexis Soloski previews the Under the Radar festival.

Plus Michael Musto's year (and decade!) in review, Free Will Astrology, and more, here.
