Oscar-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (Won’t You Be My Neighbor?) explores the uncommon life of the late storyteller, explorer and chef in the powerful new documentary, Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain.

“A raw, unmissable documentary … created in the radical, no-reservations spirit in which Bourdain lived.” – Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

The cultural-culinary-intellectual force that was Anthony Bourdain exploded onto the scene in 2000 with the publication of his searing restaurant memoir Kitchen Confidential. From there was an unstoppable rise to Parts UnknownNo Reservations, and a place in the American cultural canon. Bourdain’s outsize personality, insatiable curiosity, and passion for food, travel, and culture tapped into a deeper humanity that resonated with viewers who felt that they knew him. And to those who did know him, “Tony” was an uncommonly sensitive and insightful soul whose friendship left a lasting impact. With Roadrunner, Neville brings Bourdain’s larger than life persona from the small screen to the large. Drawing on the vast catalog of Bourdain’s on-screen work, as well as never-aired moments, home movies, and insights from those who knew him best, Neville’s film celebrates Bourdain’s colorful life and the adventurous spirit that drove it all. (Dir. by Morgan Neville, 2021, USA, 119 mins., Rated R)
