It's an indelibly warped cartoon of lust and despair.

Premiere
While the movie will definitely not be to everyone's taste, black-hearted romantics will find Choke easy to swallow.
63
Some stretches are very funny, although the laughter is undermined by the desperation and sadness of the situations.
63
Yes, it's not for the squeamish or easily offended, but its sordidness is more superficially shocking than wickedly satirical.
63
While Choke, adapted for the screen and directed by Clark Gregg, is by no means a disaster, it is disappointing - and oddly dull.
63
Fine performances from Sam Rockwell and Brad William Henke deserve some passing attention.
63
The movie veers with surprising ease between comedy and tragedy. Some scenes are hilarious; others are somber.
50
Disappointing not for what it is but what it could have been.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Maybe this stuff works on the page, in Chuck Palahniuk's darkly comic novel, but Choke is awfully tough to digest on the screen.
40
The Hollywood Reporter
For much of the way, the film just feels like it's pressing too hard to make an impression.
25
An annoying little film that attempts to be lascivious but is merely ludicrous.
