An intimate documentary as stylish and unconventional as its subject, Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami alternates between the public and private spheres of the pop-culture mega-icon of the title. Contrasting thrilling musical sequences with intimate personal footage, director Sophie Fiennes (The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema) follows Jones to her Jamaican hometown, into the studio with longtime collaborators Sly & Robbie, and on the various stages of her sexually charged, cutting-edge live shows—featuring performances of “Slave to the Rhythm,” “Pull Up to the Bumper,” and “Love Is the Drug.” A Kino Lorber release.
