As it unfolds, The Man in the Basement is as provocative, intelligent and suspenseful as anything you are likely to see this year.

The Man in the Basement doesn’t endorse a single answer; it ends on a deliberately tentative note, leaving the viewer thoroughly unsettled.

The performances are impeccable, and the film’s structural elements are deftly handled across the board.
