Victim

This movie has a kinda unusual aspect ratio? It’s… 1.68:1? That’s unusual.

I love the oddball lighting in this movie. Every other scene has some strange lighting setup. I guess they’re going for a noise thing? But it’s so uneven — some scenes look absolutely natural, and other scenes we’re suddenly in Fritz Lang territory.

Cool, eh?

Dramatic!

“He’s the perfect barometer of public morality.” That’s a good line. Rolls off the tongue.

This is pretty good… in parts. Then it gets really boring.

Victim. Basil Dearden. 1961.
