From the author of “Fight Club” comes yet another (as they say) “A Dirty Minded Satirical-Psychotic Comedy”, comes a drama/comedy about a sex addict working as a Colonial War re-enactment actor (or re-enactor) who makes a life running a con scheme that involves deliberately choking in restaurants, or wherever he feels like it, attaching himself “parasitically” to his rescuers, all to fund his mother’s care at a private mental hospital.
Isn’t that sweet? (the last part I mean, haha). I guess by now it’s pretty obvious why they called the movie “Choke“.
This movie isn’t really a high budget film, but every time author Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club) makes a novel, you’re pretty sure it’s gonna be something different, something amusing, and something special. Indeed, this adaptation was special enough to win the Special Jury Prize, at the Sundance Film Festival 2008.
All in all, it’s got 7 stars in the IMDB (Internet Movie DataBase) user ratings, so I guess it’s safe to say that it’s one movie worth watching and waiting for. Release date will be October 2008 by the way.
- Sex & Comedy – this combination has proven to work well in movies, but I’m sure this ones gonna be different. Cleverly different.
- Nice Idea!!! – I won’t be surprised if this is based on actual events, coz the way the con is done here… is pretty cool. And some just might buy it.
- The Author – Chuck Palahniuk may have a surname that’s hard to pronounce, but this guy is a genius when it comes to writing novels. We all love Fight Club right?
