Victim (1961) review

No victim to time

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.
