IN THE BASEMENT
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.
