      Cath Clarke Guardian The film-makers have done a terrific job here trawling through episodes, stitching together footage to create a portrait of a man who went out in the world with open eyes, hungry for encounters and meaning. Rated: 3/5 Jul 15, 2022 Full Review David Fear Rolling Stone The movie wants to celebrate the life of someone who left his mark. It also hopes to explore the gap between those two poles. That it only comes mildly close to succeeding in the latter respect doesn't detract from the sheer pleasure of his company. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 2, 2021 Full Review Sophie Gilbert The Atlantic "I want to make a film about why he was who he was"... For the next two hours, Roadrunner seems to dodge all the parts of its subject's life that might offer concrete answers to Neville's question. Jul 26, 2021 Full Review Mark R. Leeper Mark Leeper's Reviews This seems to be the year for documentaries about celebrity chefs, with ROADRUNNER released at the same time as WOLFGANG. However, Bourdain has a natural feeling for the obnoxious and while we can compare the two, Bourdain's manner defeats his style. Rated: 4/10 Sep 16, 2022 Full Review Marcelo Stiletano La Nación (Argentina) As attractive, captivating, and pendulous as its subject, Roadrunner immerses itself in turbulent waters. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/4 Aug 26, 2022 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies “Roadrunner” doesn’t try to rewrite the man or soften his jagged edges. In many ways it attempts to make sense of his mystique while also shedding light on the person himself who inspired millions to live their lives to the fullest...

      Jason M This is an awesome movie that everyone should see!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/29/21 Full Review Robert Tony had so many friends and admirers, but in the end none were able to truly understand the demons inside. Its often the case with genius minds and the most creative among us. Sad but true. Look past the self-destructive elements for a life full of interest and worth. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/23/21 Full Review Robert Personally liked it a lot!!! Well done biography with lots of recent footage, as he is hard to forget... Respectfully done with lots of his close friends and lovers. Great insight to his psyche and thoughts, along with his everyday life over the years. Definitely recommend!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/22/21 Full Review AMY C Amazingly well done go see it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/21/21 Full Review Facebook U A thought provoking film about an inspiring man. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/17/21 Full Review Julia I gave it a 3.5. Well done documentary, but we all know the ending. It is so depressing at the end that you leave with a low disturbed feeling. That is not the feeling i want to leave with. Perhaps that is what they wanted? Just a warning for all of those happy go lucky movie goers. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/13/21 Full Review Read all reviews
