Classy and simple two-tone palette representing a provocative silhouette – doncha just love a good juxtaposition??
Choke is based on the Chuck Palahniuk novel. It stars Sam Rockwell as Victor Mancini, a sex addict who works as a Colonial War re-enactor and runs a con scheme that involves deliberately choking in restaurants and milking all he can from his rescuers. He does this to fund care at a private mental hospital for his mother, played by Anjelica Huston.
The poster was actually chosen with the help of fan participation. Members of Fox Searchlight’s Facebook page (including this writer!) were sent a link to a page with six very different posters and were asked to choose which they felt was best for the film.
I’m glad to see that they agreed with me!
