The New Testament claims under the writing of Matthew that Jesus stated “He who lives by the sword, dies by the sword”. Different translations word this message differently, but all have the same message: the means throughout life will govern any potential end that might occur. Though this may be true, it focuses its attention to the end of the wielder of the sword, rather than the means itself. What is to become of the life of the sword? The wielder may die, but the sword may be picked up by another. The reality of this conundrum is exemplified by acclaimed artist and director Plan ‘Ben Drews’ B, who’s film

‘Ill Manors’ illustrates the vicious cycle of living a life with drugs, crime and gangs. The movie starts in London with a network of individuals who use crime, prostitution and drugs as a means of making a living. The underlying message of the movie is clear: that this means of living is simply passed on from individual to individual, or from generation to generation in a never-ending cycle. The movie opens with a prelude to show that this harsh life and means of living were brought about by the parents and upbringing of all these characters and the interactions they had with their environment and community.
