About the Movie

Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Golden Globe-nominee Mandy Patinkin (Homeland) star in this heartfelt indie about Jorge, a shy dishwasher at a Queens diner. Jorge has eyes for new waitress Amy, but bad-boy coworker Jerry (Paul) vies for her affections. Jorge’s last chance to win Amy over is a grand gesture that may save not only a customer’s life, but his own as well.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Choking Man is harsh and intermittently affecting but oppressively contrived and mostly pointless. – Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Choking Man mainly falters in its inability to reconcile the darker psychological elements of Jorge's mind and all that they portend. – Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: I can think of no earthly reason why this well-made and thoroughly charming New York indie drama from writer-director Steve Barron has been languishing in limbo for two years. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: In this case, what looks like an ambitious film-school project, complete with heavy-handed sincerity, experimental camera style, and an overplayed central metaphor, becomes gently lyrical and melancholy. – Tasha Robinson, Chicago Tribune, Dec 4, 2007
