Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami
DIRECTOR: SOPHIE FIENNES
One doesn’t have to do much to make a film about the towering, tempestuous Jamaican-born Grace Jones visually stunning and frequently outrageous, but director Sophie Fiennes goes above and beyond in this documentary portrait of the powerful and pansexual glam-pop diva, observed in close quarters over the course of several years, the all-access segments of her quotidian existence on the road punctuated by larger-than-larger-than-life musical numbers. A treatment every bit as definition-defying as its subject, untamed by either age or life itself.
