"Within this film Lahire deftly combines the fictional aspects of [Sylvia] Plath's writing with the stark reality of her life. Johnny Panic is a filmic and poetic text that evokes and adds to Plath's own dreams in the story 'Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams', and which grounds Plath's own recorded statement: 'one should be able to control and manipulate experiences, even the most terrifying - like madness and being tortured...'" - Gill Addison
