With In the Basement, Seidl has basically made a return to the documentary form, which characterised many of his early works, unlike his recent trilogy. In the Basement is nothing short of an array of characters, who could be described as bizarre to the say the least, filmed in their basements as they immerse themselves in their favourite hobby, whether it be something completely innocuous or something that should be hidden from the gaze of others. Because the basement is undoubtedly the place where people can hide things, or indeed themselves, away, and lose themselves in whatever passions they may have.
