review by
Dale Pierce

Carlos Atanes is a newer face in film, and one to keep a definite eye on. Próxima shows this as for an indy film, remains not only interesting, but with the appearance of a high budget prodction and not the cost cutting look similar films by others have offered.

 

In this film, a young man named Tony has an unhealthy fixation with time travel, space, fanatsy and science fiction. One knows he is in for it from the start when one of his friends brings him a gift he bought for him online, supposedly part of the space shuttle. In truth, someone sold him the wringer of a washing machine. With friends like this, who needs enemies?

 

As his video store goes bankrupt, Tony dwells into a fantasy realm of his own. He encoutners a mysterious female visitor as his store is closing, who leers at him then disappears.

 

Next, he attends a sci-fi convention to hear a respected author announce, more or less, he is abandoning fiction because he has discovered several secrets to life outside the Earth. In short, science fiction is about to become science fact. The author is laughed off the stage. Tony, however, takes what is said seriosuly.

 

Tony starts to explore the suppsoedly crazed author's theories and other data, unlocking the key to Próxima, a distant star, from where the title gets its name.

 

In searching , he finds out more than he bargained for. We will leave it at that.
