Storyline

During a ten-hour period in January, 1995, porn actress Annabel Chong (1972- ) had sex with 251 men in front of cameras. The resulting video sold more than 40,000 copies (she was never paid the agreed-upon $10,000). This documentary tells the story of that day and connects it to Chong's life as a student at USC and as the daughter of a middle-class Chinese couple in Singapore. Annabel talks to the camera about her decisions; the camera also follows her to an AIDS test after the world-record-setting sex fest and home to Singapore, where she visits her parents who do not know about her profession and friends and professors who do. Should she tell her mother? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Annabel Chong: To Singapore, pornography is filth. That's okay. But it's become a national ideology that, just, you know, a value judgment, you know, to do pornography is to be against the collective agreement of what it means to be a Singaporean. Fuck 'em. They can lick my ass.

Difficult and depressing viewing - 63%
10 January 2005 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

I'm sure we all remember the story. "Woman Sleeps With 250 Men In One Day". As a teenager (at the time), this was the kind of news that I was interested in although clearly, she did much more with these guys than sleep. The name of Annabel Chong has passed into legend and is the subject of this documentary from Gough Lewis. Unoriginal name not withstanding, it is a twisted piece of propaganda. While the various sleaze-balls who appear may think that Lewis is doing them a favour, the end result is a damning expose of how a industry motivated purely by sex and money chewed up and spat out one of its biggest stars.

Chong, real name Grace Quek, had only appeared in a couple of minor porn films before being plucked from obscurity by porn director John T. Bone to appear in a pet project he was working on. The World's Largest Gangbang would feature 300 men "passing through" (as he charmingly puts it) one woman and Annabel was his chosen star. In the end, she managed to f*** 251 men in ten hours before health fears brought proceedings to a premature halt. Despite being the star of the show, Chong quickly fell into a downward slide. Never paid for her work, she then left and then returned to porn after her parents (living in Singapore) discovered what their daughter had been doing without their knowledge. Meanwhile, Bone was already making plans to produce a bigger film with another star - determined to beat Chong's world record.

In truth, nobody comes out of this smelling of roses. Chong herself, while having a great body, has a face that is best suited to radio but her reckless attitude to life and other people is what damns her best. She appears, at times, selfish and cavalier towards anything thrown towards her and isn't too bothered about being screwed out of her money by Bone. Which suits him fine - Bone comes across as an uncaring, almost psychotic bastard, fawning over his star before and during the shoot and almost completely ignoring her afterwards. While it is a truth universally acknowledged that the porn industry isn't exactly on equal footing with mainstream movies, this truth is ultimately brought home when the tears begin to flow. Chong herself looks a nervous wreck, smoking like a trooper in interviews and shaking like Ozzy Osbourne. She gets no sympathy from her fellow porn actors and actresses who accuse her of aiming for the big time on purpose. Nothing could be further from the truth - the victim of a brutal gang rape while studying in London, Chong's porn career appears as another form of self-destruction. We see her self-harming and admitting that she hates her body but Lewis never asks the questions you want to ask so we don't know for sure.

Chong's story is a tragic tale of depravity and exploitation. Rejected by her peers, forgotten by her director and left to fend for herself in the aftermath of her marathon ordeal, Chong makes a hopeless heroine as you realise that she is no more capable of looking after herself as an elderly woman who's just fallen down the stairs. Emotionally crippled and physically abused, the sight of Chong blundering along the way makes for depressing viewing and you can't help but feel for her and her friends and family. Chong is the ultimate morality tale, appearing to live the dream which all-too-soon turns into a nightmare. "Sex: The Annabel Chong Story" is an effective documentary, merely portraying what is happening as opposed to Michael Moore's sledgehammer approach in docs like "Fahrenheit 9/11". The problem is Lewis's agenda is never revealed and the viewer is left to make their own minds up. Not a problem if you can relate to this (which I can, indirectly) but if you can't, this film will depress and disgust you.
