A closeted, successful London barrister (Dick Bogarde) decides to fight back against the blackmail ring terrorizing local gays. Victim had to have been incredibly daring for its time, but is so much more than an issues movie and, at its core, simply a remarkably well crafted thriller. Bogarde's performance is controlled and impressive and even when the picture veers into melodrama, it veers effectively so.
