The Little Death (2014/Magnolia Blu-ray)

Picture: A Sound: A Extras: C+ Film: B+

The Little Death is a fun quirky romantic comedy, but it is more sexual than that. The title of the movie actually is slang for an orgasm. I know this because it says so right on the cover of the Blu-ray. The sexual scenes and scenarios are not so much erotic as they are humorous.

The movie gives us a few stories about several different couples. It goes in and out of each story to show their separate lives, but keeps it all together by showing us what drives us towards our "adult" choices.

While watching this Josh Lawson-directed film, you will start to realize that there are many things that could offend people, so keep in mind this movie is not for everyone. There are fetishes in the movie that are considered taboo. An example of this would be that one of the characters wants their boyfriend to rape them. It is a strong word that bulges out when you hear or even glance at, but if you can get around that you should be fine with how they do it.

You become invested in the characters of The Little Death, so much so, you get frustrated when you see that there is no clear resolution of these characters. They decide to only give a mild suggestion of how their lives will continue on during their last scene. The cast includes Bojana Novakovic, Damon Herriman, Stephanie May, Ben Lawson, Tasneem Roc and Josh Lawson.

The high definition Blu-ray looks great and does not loose any quality with the 2.35:1 frame and 1080p transfer. All the textures and colors come through in fine detail. It has a DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless track that sounds great during outside conversations and with supporting music. All the sound effects come through crystal clear, such as, a bottle shattering or a fire alarm.

The special features for The Little Death include: A Little Look at The Story, Casting & Directing: From Script to Screen, Inside The Cast & Characters: Relationships & Sex, Interview with Writer/Director Josh Lawson.
