Won't You Be My Neighbor? ★★★★

Not a lot here for people who already know a lot about the life of Fred Rogers, but still a compelling feature about one of the greatest people ever.

The treats are really the interviews with people who knew and loved him - they share a piece of history we haven't necessarily heard before.

The most compelling section for me was right near the end, as the film shifts to the show's footprint in popular culture, particularly as a target for parody or satire. After 90 minutes of knowing this man, of realizing his impact, of appreciating what he meant in your own childhood, you're forced to reckon with Eddie Murphy / Family Guy / Robot Chicken / Celebrity Deathmatch. Your brain turns, and says "what the fuck were they thinking taking on this guy?"
