Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic | reviewed by: William O'Donnell | February 8, 2015
entertainment value
The anecdotes are interesting but I would sooner see him perform than hear about the performances (which Pryor seems to have wanted too).
genre Comedy | Documentary
synopsis This moving portrait of legendary comedian Richard Pryor chronicles his life from his troubled youth in Peoria, Illinois, to his meteoric rise as one of the most respected comic actors of the 20th century. Often misunderstood during the height of his celebrity, the late superstar has never been profiled this extensively. Marina Zenovich’s revealing and entertaining film lays bare the demons with which he struggled and reminds us just how daring and dangerous artistic freedom can be.
