Critic Reviews for The Grasshopper
Bisset is on camera for almost the entire film, kept carefully within her dramatic depth by Director Jerry Paris, with unexpected outbreaks of a kooky humor.
A film of ordinary ambitions and of limited but sometimes stunning success.
A better than expected dark showgirl life lesson story, that still underwhelms even if it never turns as vulgar as it suggests it would.
