The Press Reviews

  • An engaging, visually striking attempt to uncover the 'real' Grace Jones which is only partially successful in those terms. Nonetheless, it's still a fitting tribute to a music icon. Full Review

  • Fiennes rejects rock-doc conventions like talking heads, archive footage and linear narrative. Which is commendably bold on one level, but may leave some viewers scratching their heads and craving a little more context. Full Review

  • A unique way to encapsulate the life and character of an artist. Full Review

  • [Grace Jones'] star quality only gets more intense. Full Review

  • For the uninitiated, the viewing experience will be incredibly vague, devoid of backstory, context, history or canonical importance. Full Review

  • This portrait of Grace Jones meanders a bit, preferring a loose series of intimate moments to anything too slick or traditional. But with moments like these, who cares? Full Review

  • Shot over several years, the entertaining but meandering off-stage material seems too dazzled by Jones' mega-watt persona. The real action happens on stage, where Jones is a one-woman riot. Full Review
