Won't You Be My Neighbor (2018)

Rated: Not Rated - Runtime: 94 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

When I posted my star rating on social media, I immediately was asked by different people "Why not four stars? What's wrong with it?" 

Nothing.  Nothing at all.  It's a fine documentary about an extraordinary man.  It's just not an extraordinary documentary.  It could have aired on PBS without a theatrical run.

But the reaction is a testament to how the memory of Fred Rogers is treasured.  He loved the world almost unconditionally.  And the world still loves him back.
