Critic Reviews for Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic
The film's inevitable compressions, made worse by the amount of empty, self-congratulatory celebrity blathering, mean that every Pryor fan will have omissions to complain about.
Zenovich has assembled better-than-usual talking heads, all sympathetic even when dishing the worst bad behavior.
Omit the Logic is more likely to omit laughter as it focuses on Pryor's false career starts, drug use, depression, multiple marriages and divorces, his struggles with MS, and the infamous incident in which the comedian set himself on fire.
This may be a jet-ski ride over Pryor's life rather than a deep-sea dive but it offers a firm celebration that's likely to encourage those who have watched it to seek out more material from the man himself - and that can never be a bad thing.

Fairly honest biopic which slowly peels back the layers of Pryor's insecurities and offer a peek at his early years. With several clips of interviews, performances, and reminiscences by friends.
