Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami
This electrifying journey through the public and private worlds of pop culture mega-icon Grace Jones contrasts musical sequences with intimate personal footage, all the while brimming with Joness bold aesthetic. A larger-than-life entertainer, an androgynous glam-pop diva, an unpredictable media presence  Grace Jones is all these things and more. Sophie Fienness documentary goes beyond the traditional music biography, offering a portrait as stylish and unconventional as its subject. Taking us home with her to Jamaica, into the studio with long-time collaborators Sly & Robbie, and backstage at gigs around the world, the film reveals Jones as lover, daughter, mother, and businesswoman. But the stage is the fixed point to which the film returns, with eye-popping 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, Fienness treatment is every bit as definition-defying as its subject, untamed by either age or life itself.

"Brilliantly and beautifully engaged in the present. A sparkling example of how to document our icons. Allows us to appreciate the reality of the artist in her most candid moments, in her own words, which is way more interesting than what wed find in yet another standard biopic."

Daisy Jones, VICE
"A celebration of art and life. Jones herself has promised the film 'will be like seeing me almost naked.'"

Michael-Oliver Harding, Interview Magazine
Pure energy, fierce, and empowering. If you want a rock-n- roll, sexy, feel good, empowering film, pull up to the theater in your most audacious outfit and get ready for the Grace Jones experience.

The Huffington Post
"A sumptuous sensory treat."

Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter
"Transfixing. A joyous affair."

Steve Pond, The Wrap
"A true testament to the power of style."

Caitlin Agnew, The Globe and Mail
"The film feels as epic as the artist herself. A mix of concert doc and intimate verité, Fiennes has crafted a film that feels like Stop Making Sense via Frederick Wiseman. As an intimate look at Jones the film succeeds, as a powerful testament to her talent the film soars."

Jason Gorber, BirthMoviesDeath
