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.

Fox Searchlight Buys Choke For $5 Million!

In what they're already calling the best sale of the festival, Fox Searchlight as of 5am this morning, has bought Clark Gregg's adaptation of Choke for a reported $5 million!  The film had its world premiere last night at the Racquet Club Theatre, and Chuck Palahniuk was in attendance as the film got a roaring applause.

Here's a quote from Alex Billington, a critic at one of my favorite movie sites, FirstShowing.net:

I caught the world premiere of Choke last night and certainly will confirm that it is one hell of a great film. It's no Fight Club, but it is a Chuck Palahniuk movie in its own right delivering a solid story with great comedy and a perfect performance by Sam Rockwell. It's not my own favorite movie of the fest, but I couldn't be happier seeing this get picked up by the best indie distributor out there. Fox Searchlight has put out some of the biggest indie hits - Napoleon Dynamite, Little Miss Sunshine, Juno - and now it's time for Choke!
