4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating movie - one that sticks with you, November 30, 2009
This review is from: Little Ashes (DVD)
My girlfriends and I drove over four hours away to see this movie in San Francisco when it played in the theatres. We weren't expecting much simply because this was a low-budget independent movie not getting much attention/buzz. So, how great to find a gem of a story and captivating acting by the two leads.

The movie is beautifully shot, the colors are magnificent and the story is one you are compelled to hear with an ending scene that will break your heart.

The acting of Pattinson at times can seem awkward, as he has much growing as an actor to do, but he delivers an appropriately weird and uncomfortable performance as Dali. His performance, unlike those of just plain old bad actors, is anything but boring, and one can only wonder what Pattinson may be capable of with more experience.

And Beltrain as Lorca is hard to take your eyes off of. He has an ease and sincerity to his delivery that never falters, and you'll wish he'd never stop talking let alone leave the screen!

This movie is worth watching. You'll be thinking about it long after the credits have stopped rolling.

I think that Pattenson's problems with the role stem in part from being miscast as Dalí and, at that, only partly due to being much less elegant and suavely handsome as the famously dapper real-life Dalí. On the other hand, McNulty and Beltrán in their roles are just about perfection and really do act better!
