  1. Aardsy's rating of the film Victim

    All hail the chastise homosexual!

  2. Vincent T's rating of the film Victim

    brilliant script, full of great insights, unsentimental and sentimental at the same time, yet hampered by this "Britishness" of filmmaking/ dialogue/ manner/ cheekiness/ acting - which is very irritating. An important testament.

  3. S Campbell's rating of the film Victim

    Obviously its a touch dated by todays standards. But Deardens film is still an interesting watch

  4. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Victim

    I'm not sure if Victim is a good thriller or even a good film, but it is a significant political one. I'll leave things there.

  5. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Victim

    Una denuncia frontal ante una normativa ortodoxa británica. Todo empieza difuso, y tal vez esa era la idea del director. Es el protagonista que se marchará temprano luego de ser víctima del desamparo de conocidos suyos. La primera parte del filme hace una simulación de la posición más dramática de la comunidad gay. Lo que sigue es el descubrimiento de una cacería de brujas y la argumentación de una norma arbitraria.

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film Victim

    Oeuvre courageuse qui dénonçait une stupide loi de l'époque, considérant l'homosexualité comme une grave perversion...

  7. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Victim

    The parallels between the character he was playing and his own life do not go unnoticed. It was a brave film and a brave actor. Way ahead of it's time.

  8. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Victim

    Slow and more than a bit dry, but tough it out: there are few mysteries where you'll find better writing or more nuanced, believable characters. A fiendishly underrated borderline-lost classic.

  9. ExperimentoFilm's rating of the film Victim

    Amusingly dated and at times hysterically scripted and scored, but clearly a brave and worthy film to have made before 1967. Fine cinematography too.

  10. lina maj's rating of the film Victim

    "Victim's" Bogarde looks straight out of fashion magazine 2015! I bet the message of this film was important back then - now it's a beautiful antiquity.

  11. Mx Nihil's rating of the film Victim

    "Well, it used to be witches. At least they don't burn you." Probably Bogarde's best film.

  12. Morris Bros.'s rating of the film Victim

  13. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Victim

  14. Barboza's rating of the film Victim

  15. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Victim

    an excellent signpost of integrity and true to one's nature. an 8/10 my review:

  16. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Victim

    Basil Dearden magnificently handles a sensitive theme (like racism in Sapphire) while delivering an above average crime story. Alternating realist sequences on location and tense dialog scenes, the director manages to present the perfect mainstream movie with a social concern. It's Capraesque, it's a masterpiece.

  17. batarde's rating of the film Victim

  18. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Victim

    Focused social conscience: British style. A surprisingly neat little thriller spoon feeding a more liberal message.
