Lawson is not afraid to shy away from talking about sex, but for a film that takes this as its subject The Little Death is visually coy; it's a case of all talk and no action, and though it's really well acted by its talented cast I was on the verge of losing interest when the last, and best, sequence began. ... Overall The Little Death is intriguing, provocative, a little frustrating - sounds a bit like a relationship, doesn't it? Four stars from me. David Stratton, At the Movies
