[Victim] has a careful performance by Bogarde, and it pursues with eloquence and conviction the case against an antiquated statute.

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

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.

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.
