Proximity Reviews

June 21, 2020
PROXIMITY is a film that shows director Eric Demeusy's potential, but the overall product reads as more stale rather than exciting

Alright, but in a sort of rubbish way...

Uneven alien thriller doesn't fulfill early potential.
May 26, 2020
The problem is the story itself. It's too long, it's unoriginal and it features story notes that never fail to irritate.

Demeusy is talented, and while his debut isn't all that fresh or original, the filmmaker's presentation of the material is still notably impressive.

Whether it's meant to be taken seriously is up for debate, but either way, this campy if earnest science-fiction drama is pretty inept.

This low-budget tale of alien abduction is an in-and-out impressive calling card for debuting feature writer and director Eric Demeusy. who gets the look right but slips up on bringing depth to the script and getting past his Spielberg fixation.

Good-looking and technically well crafted, the film struggles to get past pastiche and conjure an involving world of its own.
May 15, 2020
The cast is a collection of bland unknowns, the plot is buried under nonsense, the dialogue often tin-eared and the entire enterprise gets worse the longer it goes on.

This won't remind you of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" -- that is, beyond just how good Spielberg's film was and continues to be and how this one isn't even in the same filmmaking universe. (Full Content Review for Parents Also Available)

Proximity ... shifts between three ideas. The first is fairly clever. The second is plainly generic. The third is, well, downright weird...

A commercially ambitious nouveau B movie pieced together from recycled materials from the Spielberg catalog.

[The sci-fi elements] demand the time to be more than enigmatic and pretty. The script is sadly too shallow to bring everything together.
May 13, 2020
It would all be much more of a campy hoot if it didn't go on for so long and bring Jesus into it towards the end.
