From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), Won't You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at America's favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.

'Won't You Be My Neighbor?' glows with kindness

 3½ stars out of four •

“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” is a moving documentary about a pop-culture figure whose message continues to resonate. Director Morgan Neville (“20 Feet From Stardom”) clearly admires Rogers and the spirit of kindness that he represented, and the film makes no apologies for that reverence. This is simply a portrait of an artist who shaped a much-maligned medium — television — to his own ends. 

Rogers has been criticized by conservative pundits and parodied by comedian Eddie Murphy. But those backhanded acknowledgments only confirmed his status as a force to be reckoned with.

At a time when tolerance and compassion often seem to be under siege, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” reminds us that the softest voices often have the strongest impact.

Cassius soon falls under the spell of Steve Lift, a cocaine-snorting CEO who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams.

'Sorry to Bother You' is unapologetically brilliant

Calvin Wilson / St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Subversive, irreverent and outrageously hilarious, “Sorry to Bother You” is arguably the first great comedy of the Trump era. Writer-director Boots Riley incorporates elements of satire, science fiction and horror to create a film that’s as unpredictable as it is provocative. And with his hip-hop combo, the Coup, Riley has come up with a soundtrack that’s likely to be a huge hit in its own right.

Stanfield, who played the character who yelled “Get out!” in “Get Out,” is perfectly cast as a guy who sincerely wants to get ahead but can’t help wrestling with his conscience. And Thompson (“Thor: Ragnarok”) turns in another first-rate performance.

“Sorry to Bother You” is an uncompromising and timely film of unapologetic brilliance.
