What’s on TV Saturday: ‘Ask Dr. Ruth’ and ‘Bad Times at the El Royale’

ASK DR. RUTH (2019) Stream on Hulu. When everyone else treated sex and female sexuality as a dirty secret, Dr. Ruth Westheimer was bringing it center stage. In the 1980s, the sex therapist was everywhere — on late-night TV, on the radio and on morning talk shows. This documentary, directed by Ryan White, follows Dr. Ruth continuing her career even as she approaches her 90th birthday. The film also delves into her past as a Holocaust survivor and explores how she paved the way for a sexual revolution. In her New York Times review, Jeannette Catsoulis wrote that the documentary “feels more like an encomium than a thoughtful probe of a brilliantly mutinous mind.”
