“The monster does not need the hero. it is the hero who needs him for his very existence. When the hero confronts the monster, he has yet neither power nor knowledge, the monster is his secret father who will invest him with a power and knowledge that can belong to one man only, and that only the monster can give” – Robert Calasso

I, Daniel Blake was an incredible and gripping film about the benefits system within the UK.
