The LLGFF is not just about the best in new queer cinema, it's also a great opportunity to revisit some old classics, and attend talks by filmmakers and enthusiasts. Today I embraced both opportunities by attending the lecture Victim: The Creation and Reception of a Landmark in Gay Film History.

Victim
follows a barrister who risks his career and marriage to defeat an extortion racket when his former boyfriend commits suicide rather than identify him. It a gripping thriller as well as an intelligent tract on homosexuality laws in the early 1960s.
