The Annabel Chong story is as captivating as it is disturbing, rarely has documentary film making been utilised to achieve such an intense and personal profile of an individual. The film charts the porn actress Annabel Chong in her quest to make a porn film with the largest gang-bang ever captured on film, this ‘quest’ is contrasted with Chong with her family in Singapore and with her professors and classmates at her Californian University.
Annabel Chong is an endlessly interesting and perplexing charecter – and an endlessly contradicting character. Credit must be awarded to the director for making such a tight and non-reactionary piece of work, it ends up being an extremely bleak film but the feeling is that this is only a reflection of the truth. The level to which all documentary films should wish to aspire too.
