Choke — 26-SEP-2008 (limited)

I read Choke by Chuck Palahniuk some time ago. It was fairly good. Not as good as Fight Club or Invisible Monsters... Maybe better than Lullaby?

Anyway, this is coming out as a film October 3rd, starring Sam Rockwell. Rockwell played "Eric Knox" in the first Charlie's Angels (2000). Angelica Huston is in it as well.

Choke is roughly about a medical school dropout who makes money for his mother's healthcare by working at a colonial theme park and fakes choking in resturaunts then sob-storying money out of the people who "save" him. He also cruises sex addict support groups to pick up women.

If it is as good an adaptation as Fight Club was, it should be enjoyable. "Red Band" trailer is NFSW, BTW.
