Movie Info

Maverick director Seidl (DOG DAYS, the PARADISE trilogy) delves into yet another exploration of the dark underside of the human psyche with a look at Austrian basements fitted out as private domains for secrets and fetishes. No desire or proclivity is off limits to Seidl's camera, which takes in the opera-singing gunslinger, the Hitler-loving brass band, a hunter of exotic species, and the passionate devotees of S&M with an equal measure of curiosity and compassion.

  • In the Basement is a brisk, bracing, and often very funny film about the seeds of fascism in contemporary Austrian society.

    November 19, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • This often hilarious movie descends into the unseen spaces of Austrian homes - literally and figuratively - and creates a stage for their residents' fantasies of sex, violence and power.

  • Make of it what you will, this off-the-wall film essay entertains hugely while it makes the audience squirm in their seats.

    November 5, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Grabby and grubby in equal measure, this meticulously composed trawl through the contents of several middle-class Austrians' cellars yields more than a few startling discoveries.

  • With In The Basement, [Seidl] seems to falling back on the same old shocks. The freakiness is losing its capacity to disturb.

    November 5, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Its interest is in private lives, in a single population, in subordinating the look and feel of its subjects to the aesthetic vision of their documenter.
