“I want to do good things, instead of not doing bad things all the time.”

“Choke” is based on the book of the same name by local author Chuck Palahniuk.

I did not see Chuck at the theater.

The movie is a comedy, though a dark one. But the fact that the main character’s mom is dying… and crazy… made it harder for me to see it that way.

By the time Radiohead’s “Reckoner” came up over the end credits, I felt the sting of tears. It’s both difficult and exhilirating to see one’s own dysfunctions displayed, distorted though they are, on screen.

You mean other people feel like this, too?

Damn. I thought I was special.

I mean… yay. Yay?

I’m so confused.

I’ll have to see the movie again.
