Choke | Chicago Reader


Sam Rockwell stars as a sex addict who cruises recovery meetings in hopes of scoring with similarly inclined women. He also works as an actor at a colonial theme park, cares for an elderly mother afflicted by dementia, and intentionally chokes on food at fine restaurants so he can con patrons who try to help. These ideas may well have cohered in Chuck Palahniuk's best-selling satirical novel, which I haven't read, but in this screen adaptation by writer-director Clark Gregg they seem more like an assortment of gimmicks. With Kelly Macdonald, Anjelica Huston, Brad William Henke, and a cameo by Joel Grey. R, 92 min.
