||Synopsis: This is the hard and shocking story of life in a British Borstal for young offenders. Luckily the regime has changed since this film was made. The brutal regime made no attempt to reform or improve the inmates and actively encouraged a power struggle between the 'tough' new inmate and the 'old hands'. The film was originally made as a BBC play but it was banned before ever being shown. So 'Alan Clarke' and 'Roy Minton' got it re-made as a film. This is a tough and brutal film and should not be viewed lightly. Written by Steve Crook <[email protected]>

Watch Scum - Alternative Versions.
As a resident of the United States who has worked in this country's
"enlightened" prison systems, both juvenile and adult, I must say that
the depiction of life in the boy's school is as realistic as it can be.
Prisons do not work. So called "reformation" is basically limited to
repetitious mind numbing labor that is, for the most part, useful to
the institution since they often sub-contract inmates work in the
"industries" section to outside firms, mostly government related.
There is nothing about SCUM that I saw as exaggerated or unrealistic.
The institutions I have worked at were filled with under educated
guards who enjoyed their so-called authority over their charges. Many
were in collusion with the "powerful" inmates and often victimized the
weaker inmates by celling them with people who were seeking a "wife".
This was done by the guards in order to pacify the violent inmates and
help maintain calm in the cell block.
But, as to this film, I can only say that it is realistic, brutal and
direct but then so is prison. No one is sent to prison to change or
reform, they are sent there to be punished and the internal workings of
the system are far more brutal than anything a court will dispense.
One line from the film that encapsulates the entire process of
"penology" is uttered by the character named Archer when he tells the
guard he is talking with that it has been his observation that more
crimes are committed against the inmates than they have collectively
committed against society. THAT should have been the advert tag line
for this excellent and most enjoyable video.
The character DAVIS just epitomized the suffering of every slight,
passive inmate in any prison or jail in any part of the world. His
sense of desolation after he was raped by the thugs in the greenhouse
spoke volumes about the sadistic and ignorant nature of both the
inmates that perpetrated this act and the cowardly "guard" who
witnessed it and did nothing.
Knowing that as I write these words, there are many DAVIS types in
prisons everywhere gives one cause to reflect on the very nature of
WATCH THIS FILM!!
