Quite fair, but not comprehensive or fleshed-out
10 May 2015 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I love Richard Pryor. He overstepped so many boundaries, partly on what a comedian's role should be, and partly where matters of race and what intrinsical fun is. This documentary scratches a little on the surface, as is witnessed by reading some of the biographies on Pryor and by hearing his material that evolved massively and changed stand-up comedy forever, which is not really reflected here. Sure, we get to hear Dave Chappelle say "Richard Pryor is the greatest, full stop, end of story" but I wish there'd been more flesh here. It's good that the documentary doesn't flash too much of the drama here, e.g. Pryor setting himself on fire (for real) or his fight with Gene Wilder, but all in all, it's a fair documentary, rather than a comprehensive one.
