As extraordinary as the subject matter, what amazing music!!

Just watched this at the InEdit festival and it blew me away. The contrast between young Grace and her image at 60+ is striking, but refreshing. There is a real woman behind the diva and we get good glimpses of that thru' her family life in Jamaica, as well as beautifully shot concert footage from her Dublin performances of 2016. Not a linear script, but with such an amazing character being explored, this could be expected.

Cut and Paste

There is no doubt Grace Jones is a great subject. For anything, be it her music, her performance or as a muse. She has a lot of history and above anything else, a character.

Who knows the direction of the director is going. I was patient for the first 30 minutes waiting for something to happen. Somewhere along the line, she probably threw her original idea up in the air and just wing it. The result is a bad cut and paste project any high school student aspiring to do a documentary about his high school glee club can surpass this mess by seven fold.

For Insiders or Superfans Only

Watched this and found it borderline unwatchable. While there is a story of sorts it is set out like a detective novel. You have to really be interested prior to watching because nothing pulls you in. And, I am a fan of Grace's music! The movie just jumps around - in one sequence we went from a recording studio to a bus ride, back to the studio, then a 5 second clip of some school kids and back to the studio. No one is ever introduced. You are left to figure that out on your own or you are supposed to be an insider or some kind of super-fan willing to do a bunch of homework to figure it all out. It seemed the first 45 minutes was just the same song over and over. A few nice scenes of beautiful Jamaica vistas.
