Review of Victim   

No victim to time

36 Views   No comments
Victim is absolutely beautifully crafted, which makes the impact all the more raw. Dirk Bogarde in the lead was the most perfect casting I could imagine, and he plays it on top form - consistently visceral and occasionally genuinely startling in ferocity. This performance, though, is hardly aswim in mediocrity, either - there's no clunking elements whatever. That's pretty remarkable, frankly.

It's interesting in that it's after sympathy, but not pity, which makes a key difference in how it's aged. It's one of the most personally distressing films I've seen and, after all these years, still rings a little too true.
