'Choke' never manages to be as edgy, amusing, insightful or plain messy as you'd hope it would be, especially considering its 'naughty' promotional poster and the distribution of anal beads as a marketing device.
A goofy blend of quirky characters, strange situations and wrong relationships, with just enough sadness running beneath its eccentricity to keep things somewhat real, Choke is a conscious oddball of a movie.
I don't know what to tell you about a dismal bucket of nauseating swill called Choke, except to warn that if you spend hard-earned money to sit through it, you deserve to do exactly what the title implies.
