Richard Pryor replied to mel brooks sure lets meet for breakfast...ill see you at 4...love it
anything about Pryor is going to be great, but this didn't really offer anything new and seemed to concentrate on his failures rather than his successes.
so much stuff I never knew. Crazy stories.
What a massive downer of a film.
Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic is a documentary about the legendary stand-up comedian and actor. Documentarian Marina Zenovich produced the documentary in 2013 and it premiered on Showtime in July of that year. Using archival footage and audio, we're treated to a great number of comedians and people in the entertainment industry, as well as some of Richard Pryor's closest friends and family, to get to the truth of Pryor and his station in life. Any fan of stand-up comedy should know who Richard Pryor is by this point. He was a man who challenged racism in the entertainment community, breaking through barriers to come out on top as one of the three most admired and celebrated comedians in history alongside Lenny Bruce and George Carlin. His off-stage lifestyle became somewhat of a legend, often making its way into his stand-up routine. Most documentaries about Pryor focus mostly on his career and his comedy, and while this one certainly does that, it tends to lean more towards his personal life, which makes it a more heartfelt and interesting documentary than the others. All of the interviewees have great stories, opinions, and anecdotes to share. Omit the Logic reminds us that Pryor was a tough comedian and that his comedy continues to live on today.
A whipcrack tour through the Pryor's life showing the rise and terrible fall of one of comedy's greats
They didn't pull a single punch... damn.
Meandering vox-pop .
Despite Richard Pryor is an American symbol of comedy and vindication of civil and afroamerican rights, this a documetary about human kind itself. The story of Richard Pryor is a good journey through the soul of an extraordinary talent. Maybe the work of Marina Zenovich doesn't have the soul that you can wait to see in a work of Pryor.
Very well done documentary on the controversial comedian.
