The Little Death (2015)
Critic Consensus: The Little Death may appeal to fans of dark, risqué comedy, but it's ultimately too rough and uneven to hang together as a wholly satisfying viewing experience.

Critic Reviews for The Little Death
Frequently funny and sometimes perhaps offensive in the darkness of its humor.
The Little Death is [Lawson's] feature film debut, and it's beautifully scripted, each of its five story lines working out the comic implications of a perverse urge.
it goes down as easy as Junior Soprano on Bobbi Sanfillipo, which is both a blessing and a curse for Lawson's Hollywood-slick romantic comedy.
The mood will be too mild and shock-free for fans of Todd Solondz or early Neil LaBute; yet the film is sufficiently cool and quizzical to make you wonder where Lawson will turn next.
There is simultaneously too much and not enough going on in writer/director/co-star Josh Lawson's feature debut.
Audience Reviews for The Little Death
This film has grown on me over the years. At first I dismissed this as a one dimensional boring film, but watching it again I have grown with appreciation. The film is going to develop a cult following over the next years. It is a film destined to be rediscovered and shared with other film buffs. It is dark and doesn't attempt to consume the viewer with a sugar coated happy ending. I hope the filmmakers can move onto bigger things as this unfairly missed the masses. Great performances and a sadistic dark tone help create one of the better Australian films. 10/04/2019
Generally, kinky sex is depicted in very strange environments, and is often not consensual. This can be seen in shows like "Game of Thrones," and "Girls." There's generally no relationship between the two characters, and kinks are depicted as either tenets of mental illness or the power hungry machinations of bloodthirsty warriors. This film, while not perfect and is oddly formed, does a good job of normalizing the fetishes of everyday, normal people, most of whom are in relationships. Read more at bluefairyblog.com
