Critic Reviews for Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami
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.
The non-chronological editing oddly makes Jones look as if she's everywhere at once, unbounded by the laws of time and space that ordinary mortals are subject to.
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.
Still, the sight of the ominously androgynous floating fortress with legs to spare in her civvies alone is worth the price of admission.
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.
