      Tim Cogshell FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) Very interesting... A thriller about how easily Holocaust denial can be insinuated in one's mind. Feb 11, 2023 Full Review Rex Reed Observer The Man in the Basement is as provocative, intelligent and suspenseful as anything you are likely to see this year. Rated: 3.5/5 Jan 30, 2023 Full Review Elizabeth Weitzman TheWrap Because Le Guy’s adroit script brings the past into the present so realistically (Fonzic might as well use the term “crisis actors”), “The Man In the Basement” is often almost unbearably fraught. Jan 29, 2023 Full Review Nicholas Bell Fish Jelly Films (YouTube) Fans of the three main principles may enjoy their presence in this well-meaning throwback to adult thrillers, but it's ultimately not as striking as the subject matter would suggest. Rated: 2/5 Jul 27, 2023 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A smart, tense French thriller exposing social issues. Rated: B Feb 21, 2023 Full Review Calan Panchoo Film Threat The film carries itself as though possessing great discernment but leads to a finale without insight. Rated: 6/10 Feb 16, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      mary p Good movie with provoking message. So glad to see a real film instead of these over the top CGI superhero or horror flicks. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Lisa B I speak French so that was one of the reasons I saw it and someone recommended it to me. It makes you think but still since I am Jewish and non-religious at that, it was meaningful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Ray M I liked the man in the basement almost as much as the man in the canoe! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
