FILM: Grace Jones: Bloodlight And Bami. 115 min. Directed by: Sophie Fiennes. Documentary feature in English and some French with English subtitles.
Grace Jones: Bloodlight And Bami is an enthralling, vital film which gives the same attention to Jones’s family life and personal history that it gives to her work in the studio and on stage. This is a remarkably candid portrait of an outspoken and charismatic star who carries the same energy and presence into her offstage life as she offers up to her devoted concert-goers.
The camera follows her from Los Angeles to New York, to Paris and to Jamaica, where she spends time with family and reminisces about her past. Her personality fills up the screen, not least in the incredible concert footage, but also in those backstage moments where Jones hardly hesitates to air her thoughts and feelings.
