Lauded by the Los Angeles Times for "its transporting sense of place, its striking visual pleasures and its credible and moving performances," the 2018 drama Rafiki enjoys a June 12 Figge Art Museum Screening as part of the Davenport venue's celebration of Gay Pride Month, this acclaimed romance noted for being the first Kenyan film to ever be screened at the Cannes Film Festival.

Our official welcome-back is a rather jolting reminder that time stops for no one – not even Tom Cruise. And had Top Gun: Maverick really embraced that fact, and had its star actually embraced his human fallibility, this corny, retrograde, occasionally quite-entertaining outing might've really been something.

A watershed moment in the history of LGBTQ rights will be explored in a June 3 Gay Pride Month event at the Rock Island Public Library's Main Branch, with the venue hosting a screening of the American Experience episode Stonewall Uprising: The Year That Changed Everything, a Peabody Award-winning work that the Philadelphia Inquirer deemed “an important documentary – and a passionate and compassionate reconstruction.”

Held in celebration of Gay Pride Month, a Film at the Figge screening of the Oscar-nominated documentary How to Survive a Plague will be held at Davenport's Figge Art Museum on June 5, this riveting, powerful tale of AIDS activists a Peabody Award winner for Best Documentary and a work the New York Times praised for its “scorching electrical charge,” as well as its “rage, fear, fiery determination, and, finally, triumph.”

The experience of director Simon Curtis' Downton Abbey: A New Era is nothing if not exceedingly comfortable, even if there's little that's remotely New about it.

Damned if I didn't grin and giggle at Family Camp from the very start, and damned if I didn't get misty-eyed on a couple of occasions – though given the film's leanings, I should probably be saying “darned." I'll try to remember that if, or more hopefully when, we get a sequel.

Arriving in the midst of a franchise extender almost shockingly bereft of weirdness, one scene in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness did manage to completely surprise and tickle me.

Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and recipient of an “A” rating from Entertainment Weekly, the acclaimed Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry enjoys a May 12 screening at Davenport's Figge Art Museum as part of the venue's Film at the Figge series, this fascinating study of the noted Chinese artist and activist also cited by the National Board of Review as one of its year's five best feature documentaries.

Martin Campbell's Liam-Neeson-with-a-gun revenge thriller isn't necessarily a good movie, but compared to four-fifths of its Irish headliner's big-screen blood baths, it's definitely an improvement.

The Northman is a period action drama with supernatural leanings that's five times bloodier than Braveheart, nearly as nutty as The Green Knight, and just as divisive as you'd expect from the filmmaker whose two previous features were the talking-goat freakout The Witch and the two-man fever dream The Lighthouse.
