Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (15)


Larger than life, wild, scary and androgynous - Grace Jones plays all these parts. Yet here we also discover her as a lover, daughter, mother, sister and even grandmother, as she submits herself to our gaze and allows us to understand what constitutes her mask...

The critical consensus

Sophie Fiennes’ engaging documentary explores the showbiz excesses and the Jamaican background of a star who sparkles ever more intensely.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 25/10/2017

Illuminating fly-on-the-wall documentary trailing the titular icon, from Sophie Fiennes.

****(*)Katherine McLaughlin, The List, 23/10/2017

The documentary is fascinating and enjoyable but it still only gives us half a picture of its subject. Again and again, we clamour for more information.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 26/10/2017

A unique way to encapsulate the life and character of an artist.

***(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 27/10/2017

If you didn’t love Grace Jones before, then you will after watching Grace Jones: Bloodlight And Bami.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 27/10/2017

Though the documentary itself is rather unfocused, the star at its centre is as compelling as ever.
