Grace Jones

Bloodlight and Bami

Dir. Sophie Fiennes UK/Ireland 115 min Not Rated

2018 Kino Lorber

This electrifying journey through the public and private worlds of pop culture mega-icon Grace Jones juxtaposes musical sequences with intimate personal footage, all the while brimming with Jones’s bold aesthetic. Sophie Fiennes’s documentary goes beyond the traditional music biography, offering a portrait as stylish and unconventional as its subject. An intimate camera follows the enigmatic icon as she jet sets from gig to gig, makes an emotional return to her native Jamaica, and commands the stage for one epic live show featuring incredible performances of "Slave to the Rhythm," “Pull Up to the Bumper,” "Love is the Drug," and more. 

Jones herself has said watching the film “will be like seeing me almost naked” and, indeed, Fiennes’s treatment is every bit as genre-bending as its subject, untamed by neither age nor life itself.
