Radiohead Choke

08.13.2008
UPDATE - Chuck Palahniuk is confused. According to The Playlist, Radiohead didn't compose the score for CHOKE nor did they contribute a new song to the film. They simply allowed "Reckoner," a previously available track, to be used in the film. When you remember that "Fake Plastic Trees" is in CLUELESS, you'll find this news not all that Earth shattering.

British band Radiohead will be scoring CHOKE, the second movie based on a Chuck Palahniuk (FIGHT CLUB) novel. In the film, a sex-addicted con-man (Sam Rockwell) pays for his mother's hospital bills by playing on the sympathies of those who rescue him from choking to death.

"Clark Gregg [Choke director]... knew that I'd written Choke while listening to [Radiohead's 1993 debut album] Pablo Honey, with Creep over and over and over... So Clark got Radiohead to contribute a song; to write a song for the very end of the movie, the final credits... Apparently Radiohead liked the movie so much, they've written the score."

I'm not exactly sure whether they just contributed a song, or they actually did in fact score the thing, but it doesn't matter because Radiohead are f*cking amazing. It's like asking whether you danced on a rainbow or slid along it, that you just experienced its unremitting beauty is miracle enough!

who cares if it's the 'darling' of anything? i haven't seen a single trailer that moves me in any way. i like sam rockwell a whole lot, but if the movie looks crummy to me, it looks crummy.

I read and loved the book choke

but the previews for this film have done nothing for me at all. The use of Satan said dance as the song worked well but still its mostly cause I like that song. If your going to adapt a Chuck Palahniuk novel then I'd at least want some interesting visuals which I haven't seen at all in the trailers, maybe Fincher set the bar way too high with Fight Club though. who knows? I'll wait till I get the joblo review before watching it.

radiohead are saying they didn't? Hmmmm...well, I'd like it if they retracted that statement and did. Because I love them, and what I've seen so far of this movie.
