Swallowing. My husband has a 'nil by mouth' sign at the end of his bed. Why? It is
likely that your husband has been identified as being at risk of aspirating, as
explained above, and has quite correctly been kept 'nil by mouth'. It is important
that the nurses let you know about this so that you and any other visitors do not
tempt your husband with irresistible tasty morsels. While he is ...

The strongest possible contrast to the vision of London presented by Sliding
Doors is that offered by Gary Oldman's first feature, Nil by Mouth (1997). Like The
War Zone, the leading male character is played by Ray Winstone whose version
of English men could reasonably be argued to be one of the defining
contributions to the cinematic portrayal of masculinity in the last decade. Nil by
Mouth, however, goes right back to the working-class London roots of both
Oldman and Winstone ...

Nil by Mouth (Gary Oldman, 1997) and The War Zone (Tim Roth, 1998) were the
first directorial efforts of two actors who had worked with Mike Leigh at the
beginning of their careers, both receiving their first major screen credits in Leigh's
television film Meantime (1981).6° Both films start from a premise that links them
to Loach and Leigh, a social problem examined in a family context, but the
problem is now more extreme - wife abuse in Nil by Mouth and incest in The War
Zone - and ...

Case study: Nil By Mouth Gary Oldman's film is a semi-autobiographical tale of a
working class family doomed to repeat the cycles of abuse and violence from
generation to generation in perpetuity. All the features and conventions of British
social realism can be found in Nil By Mouth: Moose' episodic narrative structure
with a cyclical resolution and ambiguity defying the closure demanded by
mainstream cinema; the use of location shooting; the use of non-professional
actors and ...

attests, "he ain't got no fucking work."1 In fact, in terms of a traditional Marxist view
of class, the characters in Nil By Mouth are not working class at all, but
lumpenproletanat. Marx saw this as a historically insignificant class with no
revolutionary potential, doomed to whither away as the stage is set for a historic
confrontation of bourgeoisie and proletariat. As he writes, the lumpenproletanat "
the social scum, that passively rotting mass thrown off by the lowest layers of the
old society, may, ...

Glen Creeber Released in Europe in 1997, Nil by Mouth was written and directed
by British actor Gary Oldman, who is best known for his leading roles in films
such as Sid and Nancy, Bram Stoker's Dracula and blockbusters like The Fifth
Element and Lost in Space. Oldman's directorial debut, however, draws its
influence more from relatively low-budget British film and television drama than
the Hollywood movies where he made his name. Dedicated to the memory of his
