I felt like I learned a lot about Pryor from Omit the Logic but was left with no strong impressions about the documentary itself afterward. Great but mostly underutilized interview subjects with great archive footage kind of make this feel like a somewhat objective Wikipedia article come to life. But the subject matter is great and helps you look past how dull the documentary itself can kind of get.
