It's a good idea, but..

6 years ago at Jan 12 4:53
The idea is good but is not that well executed. Sam Rockwell is a really talented actor and Kelly Macdonald is a great surprise but still, not as good as I tought it would be. In general the idea must be really good in a book.

Description: Actor-turned-director Clark Gregg shows he is as adept behind the camera as he is in front of it with CHOKE, a wickedly colorful dark comedy about mothers and sons, sexual compulsion, and the sordid underbelly of Colonial theme parks. Victor Mancini (Rockwell), a sex-addicted med-school dropout, who keeps his increasingly deranged mother, Ida (Huston), in an expensive private medical hospital by working days as a historical reenactor at a Colonial Williamsburg theme park. At night Victor runs a scam by deliberately choking in upscale restaurants to form parasitic relationships with the wealthy patrons who “save” him. When, i ... (more)

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: June (38 movies items)

"June 25 "And you're right, I'm pathetic. I have sex with strangers because I'm incapable of doing it with someone I actually like. I can't even ask anyone out on a date because if it doesn't end up in a high speed chase, I get bored. I've kept myself numb for so long that now I actually want to feel something and I can't because no matter where I go, no matter what I do, I always end up back here with you. I need to break up, Ma." I really liked this movie, but unfortunately it doesn't reall"

Film Diary - 2012 (391 movies items)

"Directors: Clark Gregg Date recorded: 21st October 2012 Date watched: 17th November 2012, 12.390am Watched before?: No, first watch. Thoughts: Well, a minute or so in and I'm not interested so far. OK, it gets a little better… not fantastically though. Opening scenes are juvenile. A few others during the film too. "

Most Unfairly Overlooked Movies Of The Decade (23 movies items)

" Vile, seedy, and morally bankrupt Choke didn't contain any fight scenes so no one bothered to see it. Sex doesn't sell, apparently, but a good decapitation does. Amoral and filthy in the most glorious of ways, Choke starred Sam Rockwell as a sex addict and historical re-enactor who wanders through life screwing everyone he knows. Based on a book by Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk, it's viciously funny and, in a dark and twisted way, even a little poignant. But a confusing thea"
