Reviews

“Seidl asks us to embrace humanity in all its complex and flawed beauty. This film takes that intrinsic idealism to a whole new level. We may not always fully understand what we're seeing, but the deeper into In the Basement we go — the weirder things get — the harder it is to look away”. (Adam Woodward, Little White Lies)

"a film of wry fascination, a compellingly weird journey into a domestic space where repressed desires are acted out and where social and political taboos are given free rein." (Lee Marshall, Screen)

“deadpan, funny, but ultimately very disturbing”. (Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent)

"Corpulent sex slaves, tuba-playing Nazi obsessives, reborn doll fantasists — just a regular stroll through the neighborhood, then, for patented guru of the grotesque Ulrich Seidl, who makes an intriguing return to documentary filmmaking with “In the Basement“." (Guy Lodge, VARIETY)

“If precise, clinical dissections of fetishes, freakishness and folly are your bag (and they’re so ours) you’ll find a great deal here to admire, laugh at and be oddly moved by, at least after the initial shock has worn off”. (Jessica Kiang, Indiewire)
