Definition of Real Storytelling
18 February 2016 | by (Jamaica) – See all my reviews

I've watched many documentaries about crime and listened to people who have committed crimes.

I don't usually rate documentaries because they provide different information that is important across the board and I can't put a rating on that.

This is my first ever review and the reason why I chose to review this film is because it's one of the most captivating and detailed story I've ever listened to, about crimes someone have committed. Throughout the film, I kept asking myself, why is this (former) prisoner so good at storytelling and why was he in prison, it is almost like you almost can't believe that the story actually happened because of the way he was conveying it. The cinematics were just enough to compliment Nick Yarris' story which made it all together very engaging and beautiful. Even though he went back and forth in history while he told his story, it was still easy to understand because it all came together as he spoke.

A wonderful story that everyone should hear.
