Duncan Gray's rating of the film Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Neville has made docs about pop stars, Gore Vidal, and Orson Welles, and here he makes the case that a Presbyterian in a sweater-vest was just as iconoclastic. Neville's stamp is expanding upon media nostalgia, his idiom a simple immediacy that touches on more than it explores. But this collates, sometimes beautifully, adult experience and ageless feeling to a world of children's TV too easily regarded as disposable.
