Immensely significant in its plea for tolerance for gay men (interestingly, lesbianism is not discussed here), Victim works hard arguing that gays are part of the typical, healthy fabric of society.

What a gripping film -- melodramatic and self-conscious, yes, but forthright and bold.

The very fact that homosexuality as a condition is presented honestly and unsensationally, with due regard for the dilemma and the pathos, makes this an extraordinary film.

Though a tad dated and tame by today's standards, this 1961 drama was not only ground-breaking in its depiction of homosexuality, but it also marked the occasion when Dirk Bogarde broke free from his popular matinée idol image.

Impeccably liberal, weirdly restrained and, aside from anything else, a fascinating historical document.

Recent critics find Victim timid in its treatment of homosexuality, but viewed in the context of Great Britain in 1961, it's a film of courage.

The intensity of Bogarde's performance, not least where he confesses to wife Sylvia Syms his homosexual desires, transcends the film's well-intentioned cautiousness.

Bogarde is subtle, sensitive and strong. Syms handles a difficult role with delicacy.

[Victim] is a snapshot of social history that has dated in the past 40 years. But it is well worth watching for Dirk Bogarde's superb performance.
