The debut presentation in the Figge Art Museum's “Film at the Figge” series – a monthly program featuring award-winning, independent movies about the arts screened in the Davenport venue's John Deere Auditorium – Wim Wenders' critically acclaimed documentary Pina will be shown on March 17, the film an Academy Award-nominated tribute to legendary choreographer Pina Bausch.

If you're wondering whether the combination of long, dark, and aggressively serious applied to material we're all wa-a-ay too familiar with results in a boring movie, I'm happy to report that writer/director Matt Reeves' The Batman isn't boring. Quite the opposite: It's exhilarating – an unexpectedly scary and resonant work that doesn't invite comparisons to Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy so much as David Fincher's Zodiac and Seven.

What Joe Wright's Cyrano lacks in excitement is largely made up for in consistency of tone, and that would be a backhanded compliment at best if the tone weren't so consistently sincere, playful, touching, and romantic.

Praised by the New York Times for its "accessible, informative, and optimistic look at solutions to the climate crisis," the Australian documentary 2040 serves as the latest presentation in River Action's QC Environmental Film Series, its March 6 premiere at Davenport's Figge Art Museum inviting audiences to look at the effects of climate change over the next 20 years and what technologies that exist today can reverse the effects.

Dog is a friendly, sentimental dramedy in which Channing Tatum takes a road trip with a canine. The movie really only falters when it tries to be anything else.

Even if you've read the author's 1937 novel more than once – or have instant recall of the peerlessly eccentric 1978 readings of Peter Ustinov, Maggie Smith, Bette Davis, and company – there's still an awful lot here to enjoy.

A lauded selection in the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival, 2021's Reflection: A Walk with Water serves as the latest presentation in River Action's QC Environmental Film Series, its February 20 premiere at Davenport's Figge Art Museum sure to demonstrate why Framework said that the work “should be screened through every Internet portal, at every bus stop, on every subway line, and in every government office, school, university, and bar."

After announcement hosts Tracee Ellis Ross and Leslie Jordan wrapped up their duties by revealing this year's 10 nominees for the biggest Oscars prize of all, things no longer looked good for The Power of the Dog, especially in terms of Best Picture. They looked freaking great.

Despite the rough language, physical peril, and copious nudity, this franchise extender is a family film. Its stunts are beyond crude, but its heart is unfailingly sweet.

Presented as part of the Davenport museum's free “Thursdays the the Figge” programming, the Academy Award-nominated documentary Finding Vivian Maier will be screened on February 10 in the “Film at the Figge” series, with the critical consensus at Rotten Tomatoes reading, “"Narratively gripping, visually striking, and ultimately thought-provoking, Finding Vivian Maier shines an overdue spotlight on its subject's long-hidden brilliance.”
