Critic Reviews for The Strawberry Statement

All Critics (3)

Hagmann, got hist training in TV commercials; and all too often it shows through in the flashings and zoomings... the narcissistic awareness of the charm of youth.

Audience Reviews for The Strawberry Statement

This movie is kinda like a late 60s version of Casablanca, taking place in America, on a college campus. It's very intense, exciting, and dramatic. I really liked this movie, it's fantastic, and I highly recommend it.
