Grace Jones – Bloodlight and Bami
Grace Jones is the supermodel, singer and actress who took the world by storm as she hit the French fashion scene in the 70's. She is as passionate and determined as she is vulnerable, but always with her integrity intact. The director Sophie Fiennes, who also made The Pervert's Guide to Ideology with Slavoj Zizek, has followed Grace Jones for a long time and comes close to the artist. "The film is often a classic tour documentary in its form, but Bloodlight and Bami is also an ambitious concert film, where many of Jones's most private insights are varied with maximalist performances of songs tied to her life", writes Fredrik Sahlin at Kulturnyheterna, rating the film 4 out of 5.
