Overview

Choke

Victor Mancini (Sam Rockwell) has got some problems -- when he's not at Sex Addicts Anonymous meetings hunting for women to bed, he masquerades as a choking victim in restaurants as a scheme to gather money from unsuspecting strangers, which he uses to keep his ailing mother (Anjelica Huston) in a high-end extended-care facility for her extreme dementia. But what happens when this messed up Colonial-era theme-park employee finds Mrs. Right in the guise of his mother's doctor -- and how can he give their relationship a try when she tells him he's the next coming of Jesus Christ? Based on Chuck Palahniuk's (Fight Club) pitch-black comedic novel, Choke is adapted and directed by David Mamet alumni Clark Gregg, whose career spans stage, screen, and TV work as well as a screenplay credit for Robert Zemeckis' 2000 thriller What Lies Beneath.

I really do not know how anyone would not like this movie (unless you get offended easily). Sam Rockwell's performance was superb. This is one of the most creative and original story-lines that I have ever seen/read. Chuck Palahniuk is a genius. It is always entertaining to see what he can create, and Choke lives up to the high standard that people can expect from Palahniuk. This DVD is well worth your time and money. It is one of my all-time favorite films.
