Choke

Where to begin? Sam Rockwell (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind) stars as Victor, a sex-addicted con man who works at a Colonial Williamsburg theme park and prowls self-help groups looking for women to get freaky with. He also pretends to choke to death in expensive restaurants in the hopes that rich patrons will save his life and then give him money, which he then uses to fund his crazy mother's psychiatric bills. Eventually, he decides he's Jesus. It all comes from the highly demented mind of writer Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club). A must for fans of absurdist fairy tales about addiction, compulsion and libidinous behavior. 89 minutes R.
