Believe in Me

Hagmann, of The Strawberry Statement, shows the same concern here to isolate his audience from his subject by glossy technique. The story tracks a sensitive young doctor driven to speed by the strain of watching kids die daily in his ward. He meets Bisset, turns her on, brings her down, etc. A pernicious film that trades on deliberate confusion of values, and glamorises mainlining as effectively as a Tube ad.
