Quotes

David Banks: Don't try to find no logic. A lot of this in here, logic is omitted. Some time to understand Richard, you had to omit the logic and then you come close. What you think it ought to be, it aint going to be nothing like it.

Hard to Understand
21 August 2015 | by (LA, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

This didn't include much information that I hadn't already heard elsewhere. It did have a little bit about his grandmother, and some interviews with ex-wives and girlfriends so it was vaguely interesting what his taste in females was. His bio's talk about Peoria and his father ... he never says too much about his mother. Did she die young? My main problem with it was the sound track -- *extremely* hard to make out what people were saying. I would not recommend it. Although it's interesting to reflect on the differences in race relations in 2015 and how blacks and whites do and do not interact now as opposed to when Richard was making everyone laugh.
