Anthony Bourdain doc explores chef’s ‘tortured’ life: ‘He cared way too much about everything’

Last month, fans once again mourned the death of Anthony Bourdain, who died by suicide three years ago on June 8, 2018. He was 61.

Now, the late TV personality is memorialized in the emotionally searing new documentary “Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain,” which premiered at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival in June.

Directed by Morgan Neville (who helmed the Oscar-winning documentary “20 Feet From Stardom”), “Roadrunner” is a captivating portrait of Bourdain as a restless spirit and live wire: a man whose romantic ideas of relationships and fatherhood clashed with his impulse toward extremes. The movie charts his rise from struggling restauranteur to New York Times bestselling author to renegade star of CNN’s “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” which used global cuisines as a window into other cultures.

The documentary has been a hit in specialty theaters, earning $3.7 million at the box office in its first two weeks of release.
