"I loved Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain because, like Bourdain himself, the film pulls no punches."
— Lorry Kikta, Film Threat
"The film presents a psychological, almost novelistic portrait of how Bourdain evolved as a person during the years of his celebrity."
— Owen Gleiberman, Variety
"Audiences drawn to Bourdain through the years... [are given] the invaluable gift of a stronger connection, deeper knowledge, and just a little more time."
— Elizabeth Weitzman, TheWrap
"At its best, it does what Bourdain's work did: "Roadrunner" makes you want to jump on a plane, discover a new place, a new culture, eat a great meal, and make a new friend. What could be more valuable?"
— Jason Bailey, The Playlist
"Roadrunner, steeped in the jittery punk-rock style and verve of its famously omnivorous muse, registers as more than a requiem or a postscript. It feels like an essential document, created in the radical no-reservations spirit in which he lived."
— Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
"Watching Roadrunner feels like engaging in a kind of collective mourning, a desperate bid to understand a man who meant so much to so many, even if we never met him. For those of us who cared about Tony, whether through the television or a recipe, this is essential viewing."
— Clint Worthington, Consequence
