Try Not To Choke On All The Reviews

Okay, that news title was lame. And I must confess, I spent a minute too long thinking of it.   But hell, with a title like Choke, it simple screams for witty puns. 

Over the past few days, reviews of Choke from Sundance have continued to pour in.  Here are some more for you all.  Notice that, there hasn't really been one critic yet who has overall disliked the film.  It's been mainly positive, with people loving it, liking it, or simply being Choke by Chuck Palahniukentertained by it, albeit, pointing out some minor flaws.
