Sex – The Annabel Chong Story

Film

Time Out says

Charlatan, victim or post-modern sex goddess? The three faces of student turned gangbang queen Annabel Chong (aka Grace Quek) dreamily overlap in this disquieting documentary. Grace herself seems keen to look on the bright side and is all the more irritating for it. But as we trawl through the various dishevelled porn producers surrounding her, something shifts. She's clearly detested by her colleagues, and the fans are just as scary - one shows us a photo of her dressed all in white: 'She looks so innocent,' he pants, 'I really like that one.' As the film delves deeper, following Grace to her parents' home in Singapore and then to the scene of a gang rape in London, things become even more distressing - and chronologically disjointed. It's almost as though the past is trying to head off the present; the seemingly endless 251-man gangbang Grace endures with the most terrifying of smiles. And for what? A year later, her record gets broken by Jasmin St Claire (Grace there to watch, gimlet-eyed). Snatches of conversation, meanwhile, alert us to the health risks. It's not pity that makes us love Grace. She's a willing freak, buttressed between notoriety and failure; but her indifference to the mainstream commands respect.
