CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on July 15th, 2021, reviewing the new documentary “Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain” in theaters beginning July 16th.

The fans of chef-turned-food-traveler Anthony Bourdain are many. The author of “Kitchen Confidential” and “A Cook’s Tour,” in addition to the TV host of “Parts Unknown,” had a large and fanatic audience. This film follows his career, from marginal restaurant chef to mega superstar foodie and globe trotter. And as that fame grew, so did his anxiety about purpose, which fueled his suicide in 2018.
