SEX: THE ANNABEL CHONG STORY (1999)
I don't think I really ever gave much thought to Annabel Chong outside of her being a fairly unattractive Asian who did the first big gang-bang video in porno-land. This documentary seems to try and paint a picture of an intelligent female whose choices reflect some sort of bizzaro-land version of feminism who celebrates her sexuality by being a super slut. Now while I'm hardly an expert on feminism, I suspect that might be a giant load of bullshit. Annabel, aka Grace as we find out her real name is, comes off to me as a disturbed(self-cutter), attention-seeking individual who makes a lot of bad life choices. It also shows what a bottom-of-the barrel, shithole industry porn is(Chong is promised $10,000 for doing 251 guys in a row, she receives nothing). But you hardly need a 90 minute film to illustrate the fact that modern-day porn is a cesspool. Just look at the uncreative, garbage that they spew out on a non-stop basis Maybe if this was about a real actress from porn's golden age it would've held a lot more interest for me.
