  • It's a welcome primer for those who are new to Pryor's career, but old fans might be better off sitting down with some of the comedy records.

  • Jesse James Miller's biographical documentary is a conventional but fascinating portrait of the self-destructive comic great.

  • I Am Richard Pryor presents a sincere and moving account of the comedian/actor's life and career.

    August 6, 2020 | Full Review…
  • I Am Richard Pryor is an informative, compelling documentary that only suffers slightly from its conventional structure.

    March 19, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Skims over a lot of stuff... Watch Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic, instead.

    March 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Pryor told unfiltered stories about his addiction, abuse, and encountering racism through his comedy. He literally used the pain of his past and present and turned it into power on the stage with a microphone.
