Overview

There was no one quite like Anthony Bourdain. Famous for his roguish persona and insatiable appetite for food, travel and life, he burst onto the scene in 2000 with his frank and funny memoir Kitchen Confidential, before becoming a household name as the host of food and travel shows Parts Unknown and No Reservations. His tragic suicide in 2018 sent shockwaves throughout the world, and left a hole in the hearts of those closest to him. With Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain, Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom) delivers an intimate portrait of this one-of-a-kind chef, writer and provocateur, combining a wealth of archival material and interviews to celebrate an extraordinary life.
