Critic Reviews for Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami
This portrait of Grace Jones meanders a bit, preferring a loose series of intimate moments to anything too slick or traditional. But with moments like these, who cares?
Fiennes rejects rock-doc conventions like talking heads, archive footage and linear narrative. Which is commendably bold on one level, but may leave some viewers scratching their heads and craving a little more context.
Although this biopic is unfocused in parts, the live performances make for spectacular viewing.
There are few genuinely eye-opening insights here, but the way Fiennes captures Jones's enduring duality is moving and revealing.
So far as Grace is concerned, she is still a star, and I must admit the more of this film I watched, the more I liked her.
