Fantastic Fest Review: Proxy
It’s fun when a movie sneaks up on you, something you either had low expectations for or maybe were not even aware of. It doesn’t happen very often. It seems like in this day and age, almost every movie is a known entity before viewers are able to see it. The low expectations game doesn’t pan out much because usually your expectations were low for good reason. Until about a week ago, this viewer had never heard of Proxy. This review will tread carefully because knowing too much about it is likely to diminish the impact of such a bizarre and surprising tale. It grabs your attention immediately. Esther (Alexia Rasmussen) is pregnant and two weeks from her due date. After visiting her doctor she is attacked while walking to a bus stop. It is brutal and horrifying, calling to mind the 2007 French classic Inside. You just don’t see pregnant women attacked like this in movies much.
