A bleak, disturbing and unforgettably frank portrait of a subculture on the edge.
As daring and frank as it may be, Chemsex is also one of those documentaries that actually gives a damn about its subject.
Flaws aside, it is powerful, fascinating and honestly made.
The directors achieved extraordinary access to this subculture, and skillfully combine staged interviews with, among other things, footage shot in clubs and people's homes.
A stark, sobering documentary.
It's probable some of the participants in Chemsex are enjoying themselves more than they admit here, but as in all documentaries of this ilk, a degree of hypocrisy is built in.
A surprisingly sturdy and nuanced exploration of a dangerous, drug-fueled underground sex culture that has increasingly been infiltrating the mainstream.
It is a provocative, often shocking exposé about a 'new norm.'
As shocking as the details of chemsex life are revealed to be, it is the universality of the struggle each of these men face that ultimately defies orientation and gender.
Fairman and Gogarty try to give a sense of the appeal of this hedonistic abandonment, while simultaneously showing how deeply saddening and traumatic much of the activity is.
It's a pleasure and an honour to spend time with the interviewees (Miguel, Enrique and Simon are especially adorable, articulate and open) but there's something disingenuous about Chemsex.
A very strong piece of journalistic documentary.
