For the Love of Film...

Welcome to my review website. I love movies, and here’s the place I talk about them. You’ll find my ratings, on a scale of zero to five stars, in all of my posts. For each film, I’ve written either a full critique, which is a longer piece; a compact review, which is usually just a paragraph; or a quick take, which is only a sentence or two. I also post articles about the world of cinema on my film blog.

In the Comments section on each page, feel free to share your own thoughts and feelings about the films discussed here.

Lights! Camera! Action!

Choke

This darkly humorous indie film feels similar in tone to another made from a Chuck Palahniuk novel, Fight Club. The story follows a sexual compulsive, played wonderfully by Sam Rockwell, on an unlikely redemptive journey. Written for the screen and directed by actor Clark Gregg, the film is quirky, to say the least, and probably not for most audiences.
