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.

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.

Zenovich has assembled better-than-usual talking heads, all sympathetic even when dishing the worst bad behavior.

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.

As a showcase of Pryor's talent and influence, Omit the Logic is undeniably fun. It just feels a little slight given the massive cultural influence of its subject matter.
