Is someone choked?

Browse movies, tv shows, books and more where someone is choked.
My best friend in the world who I watch tons of movies with is triggered by depictions of choking as are many other domestic abuse/IPV survivors. while 'does somebody struggle to breathe' is sometimes a useful category in this regard, it is too broad and unless a user adds an optional comment to elaborate there is no way of knowing whether a "yes" refers to, say, choking on food/drowning/etc or to somebody being choked, a distressing form of violence that is also EXTREMELY present in films both serious and comedic in tone. making this a distinct category from 'does somebody struggle to breathe' would make a huge difference for me and my friend and make it much easier for us to watch movies together without as much uncertainty, and i'm certain we're not the only ones. thank you in advance!

BoJack chokes Gina - it's prolonged and shown in close up from both their points of view. Onlookers don't stop it as they believe it's fake. The following episode deals with the fallout from it and Gina is clearly traumatised.

In S1: E5, Striker tries to choke Moxxie to death. He almost succeeds, but is interrupted. He tries to do it again in S2: E4, but fails again, and the act itself is far less intense than in the previous attempt.
