Critic Reviews for Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami

All Critics (80) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (69) | Rotten (11)

  • The offstage sequences can be revealing - in one scene, Jones recalls the abusive step-grandfather who inspired her aggressive musical persona- but director Sophie Fiennes sets such a languid pace that the songs can't come soon enough.

  • Fiennes provides a meandering observation of the woman behind the glamazon, disco diva and full-throated and furious singer/performance artist in this unstructured doc.

    May 31, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Still, the sight of the ominously androgynous floating fortress with legs to spare in her civvies alone is worth the price of admission.

    May 18, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The movie clocks in at just under two hours and feels considerably longer. As it ticks on, it achieves an unlikely and perhaps not entirely unintentional feat: It makes Grace Jones kind of boring.

    May 3, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Unfortunately, Jones is alone here, forced to carry the film without much help from the director.

    April 26, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Perhaps Fiennes's intent is to draw the viewer into the solipsistic intensity of what it is to be Grace Jones. It is a bracing experience, because she is hedonistic, exultant, funny, and fierce.
