    This doc will persevere anyway because Fred Rogers showed us all that to be a man could mean not having anything to do with toxic masculinity.

    ★★★★½

    Standard setting biopic that goes to the trouble of exploring a complicated man who lived an interesting life. It wasn't one situation or trauma that this film sets out to examine but a series that haunted Malcolm to the end. He wasn't a saint but he was, by his own words, a man.

    ★★★★

    One of the most beautifully shot and executed horror films I've ever seen. The soundtrack is almost useless. Too over the top and actually took me out of the film several times.

    But I'd watch it again. The use of memory, terror, elaborate death scenes are unforgettable.
