The week's top three arts highlights

Posted 8:54pm on Wednesday, Mar. 27, 2013

The Star-Telegram arts writers spotlight what's rocking their world this week.

1 No: The ouster of Chilean strongman Augusto Pinochet in the '80s came about partly because of an eye-catching ad campaign. How that campaign came to be is the subject of Chilean director Pablo Larraín's engaging drama No, starring Gael Garcia Bernal and a nominee in the foreign-language category of this year's Oscars. Shot to look like it was actually filmed in the '80s, No is a cheeky look back at a country in transition. Noon, 2:15 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. today at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. themodern.org

2 Little Fugitive on Blu-ray : A little-known gem that predates the French New Wave's embrace of nonprofessional actors turned loose in real locations, directors Morris Engel and Ruth Orkin's 1953 Coney Island-set Little Fugitive positively sparkles in its Blu-ray debut, courtesy of Kino. In stores now, the high-def disc features a freshly remastered print of the landmark film, as well as ample supplementary material, including a fascinating documentary about Engel's cinematic accomplishments.

3 "Bernini: Sculpting in Clay" at the Kimbell Art Museum: The exhibit has been extended for an additional three weeks, with a new closing date of May 5. The appeal of the beautiful clay models and drawings by the 17th-century Italian sculptor has "far exceeded our expectations," says the Kimbell's director, Eric M. Lee. Adult admission is $16, which includes the audio tour. The museum is at 3333 Camp Bowie Blvd., Fort Worth. 817-332-8451; www.kimbellart.org
