Critic Reviews of "Little Ashes"Philadelphia InquirerJune 26, 2009
A bravely earnest and gauzy bit of biography.Washington PostMay 29, 2009
Beltran, for his part, makes a solidly believable Garcia Lorca. The problem is with the man with whom he's obsessed. In Pattinson's performance, we never see what Garcia Lorca sees in Dali.St. Louis Post-DispatchMay 28, 2009
Little Ashes is stylish enough to beguile and bold enough to provoke, but it's not bright enough to illuminate.Toronto StarMay 22, 2009
Even cinematographer Adam Suschitzky's richly textured and resonantly toned cityscapes and rural scenes can't make up for a flawed script and weak performances in what might have been a powerful historical drama.Boston GlobeMay 21, 2009
What's intended to be a daring look at repressed sexuality, three-ways and all, has the dramatic heft of a true-love comic book.Seattle TimesMay 14, 2009
Better to seek out these artists' works firsthand than to settle for this tame rehash, pretty as it may be.Sydney Morning HeraldMarch 25, 2010
It feels as though Morrison and Goslett are trying too hard to emulate the work of their subjects.The Age (Australia)March 25, 2010
The drawcard of Robert ''Twilight'' Pattinson as Dali is a mixed blessing for the filmmakers, given how ill-at-ease he is in the role. Javier Beltran, as Garcia Lorca, cast as the heroic centre of the film, cuts a more confident figure.Urban CinefileMarch 18, 2010
A snapshot of an insight into the life of Salvador Dali, one of the most complex artists in history and it intensifies rather than satisfies our curiosity about himOld School ReviewsSeptember 16, 2009
limps along about as lifelessly as one of Dali's melting clocksDeseret News, Salt Lake CitySeptember 03, 2009
Beltran tries to give this flimsy nonsense some weight, but Brits McNulty and Pattinson's attempts at a Spanish accent are woeful.International Press AcademyAugust 18, 2009
It's not even worth it for Robert Pattinson, who is shown in the movie, nearly fully naked, with his privates tucked between his legs, but everything else showing.
