OMIT THE LOGIC REVIEWED
“Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic” is the lengthier Pryor documentary released in the last few years. However, it feels still slightly off. Too many comedians show up to kiss his ass, but it’s earned. There’s a fair amount of history put up onscreen, but everything relates to how Pryor became the comedian we know. Given how closely his wife was involved in the production, it feels like the documentary never gets the chance to pry around the darker areas of Pryor’s life. We get a bit about the freebasing, but not enough that led Pryor there. The desire to keep using stories about the comedy specials to cover up troublesome areas didn’t go unnoticed. But, what can you do?
