An evocative and sweeping portrait of the man, chef, writer, and host, revered and renowned for his authentic approach to food, culture and travel. Widely reviewed and considered, Roadrunner, which follows Bourdain from the time he publishes his best-seller Kitchen Confidential through the end of his life in 2018, is a must-see. Directed and produced by the Oscar-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville, this film offers a look into the apex of Bourdain’s fascinating career and life.
“A documentary that evokes, and makes sense of, the full sweep of Anthony Bourdain’s gifts, charms, successive careers, sustaining passions and bedeviling obsessions. A film of fitting energy and complexity, it’s a stirring account of an astonishing life.” — Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
“An intimate and fascinating portrait of the beloved celebrity chef and television globe-trotter. It is also, inevitably, a spiritual investigation into why his life ended.” — Owen Gleiberman, Variety
