Newspaper strangling vs. Hollywood neck-break

Is it really possible for a person to kill another by twisting their neck the way stealthy soldiers do on movies? If so, why in the world would anyone ever strangle someone?

The very knowledge that strangulation ever occurs is what causes me to doubt whether the military "neck break" attack is an "option," since the latter is so obviously preferable in what would be every relative way (speed, anonymity, low effort, effectiveness, noise), yet stranglers are on the news and neck-breakers are in the movies.
