Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami

Sophie Fiennes

UK, 2017, 115 minutes

Grace Jones, the statuesque Jamaican model-turned-singer, actress, and icon, has made a career performing versions of herself. But who is the real Grace Jones? This film moves between her personae onstage and off. Don't expect a traditional music biography with sit-down interviews and archival footage. This treatment is as stylish and unconventional as its subject. In the subtitle, “bloodlight” refers to the studio signal for recording and “bami” is a Jamaican flatbread. The words stand for art and life.The film is threaded with performances from a 2016 concert staged for Fiennes' camera. Strutting like an Amazon in heels, Jones performs songs such as “Slave to the Rhythm,” “Love is the Drug,” and “Amazing Grace” with multiple costume changes. This might be the first documentary with a credit for Corset Designer. Whatever mysteries Jones conceals, one thing is certain: we can't take our eyes off her.—Toronto International Film Festival
