Screenplay idea: Man gets amnesia and reconstructs his life from blog comments he wrote. Short film -- he kills himself after 11 minutes.
Trailer to Choke, Pahlanuik's newest. Meh, right? (YouTube has some clips too.)
Much worse than "meh" - it's 100% terrible (saw at Sundance)

No sir, I don't like it.

Saw it at the MSP film fest. Would have been good if it had a different director...and screenplay...and cast. That hypothetical film might have been good.

We screened the trailer at the reading and I laughed out loud. Choke is Palahniuk's funniest book; apparently the film adapts his dark comedy pretty well. I'm sure it helps when the screenplay uses so much of the same dialogue.
