Critic Reviews of "The Fear Of 13"VarietyMarch 29, 2016
"The Fear of 13" is the classic stranger-than-fiction scenario, but it's also a testament to the power of storytelling, which can make the truth sound like embellishment.Time OutNovember 10, 2015
This gripping documentary reels you in, closer and closer, finally playing its hand in the closing moments.The Arts DeskNovember 17, 2015
David Sington's The Fear of 13 is many things -- blisteringly immediate, compelling, emotionally devastating -- but at times it may have you pondering whether it fits into any traditional "documentary" category.Observer (UK)November 15, 2015
Not so much an interviewee as a monologuist, Yarris leads us on a labyrinthine journey that has as much to say about the art of storytelling as it does about the iniquities of crime and punishment.Independent (UK)November 13, 2015
This is virtuoso film-making only partially let down by its artifice.Electric SheepNovember 13, 2015
It's a striking, compelling film that is incredibly personal. Yet, it's hard, at the end, not to feel as though we've been manipulated by both the filmmaker and Yarris.Irish TimesNovember 13, 2015
It is an astonishing yarn and the angular, monk-faced Yarris is an undeniably charismatic presence.Little White LiesNovember 13, 2015
A ripping yarn, a fascinating character.Times (UK)November 12, 2015
The Fear of 13 is riveting and that's mainly due to its extraordinary subject.Radio TimesNovember 12, 2015
