Check out the Best of VICE here: http://bit.ly/VICE-Best-Of Peruvian artist LU.CU.MA spent 27 years in jail for the murder of his brother, among other crimes. After his release, LU.CU.MA—short for Luis Cuevas Manchego—swore to turn himself around. He traded the machine guns, hand grenades, and knives that he once used to ambush buses for art supplies. VICE traveled to Lima, Peru, to talk to LU.CU.MA about his life, how he uses art as a way to repent, and why all his paintings involve things like corrupt politicians being beheaded by snakes.

+Estarossa I don't see any of those in this video. Sounds like every people in their country is in dangered. Is that mean every people should kill each other for survival? Kiss my ass you dumb fuck.
Estarossa (13 days ago)
+Robin Jang check out the conditions he is living in, for survival I mean to not get robbed/raped/drugged or get in human trafficking
Robin Jang (13 days ago)

When bad guy try to change to be a better person and if this is movie someone will probably kill him right now what a sad story. Hope it will never happen
Buddha (23 days ago)
Not a psychopath but a sociopath. There's a significantly higher rate of sociopaths in rural areas and underdeveloped countries, and in this case, Peru. Psychopaths are genetical but sociopaths are circumstantial; his past explains that. Nurture vs. Nature basically. Also, sociopathy can be cured since it's created by the situation, much like trauma.
Yu Nii (19 days ago)
Yes. I knew he was a sociopath. With a little bit of narcissistic personality.

So no one here thinks he's making shit up? I mean, "Dracula", "Frankenstein"? He just loves talking about himself and then he adds some stuff to the story. He does that thing with prostitutes because he just wants to tell someone about himself

This is the exact reason I love Vice, it is because they actually have the guts to look and find these people, in other documentaries with things the faint hearted may be afraid of, the journalists may show that they are afraid but if they were truly afraid they wouldn't look for or try to contact these people. This is why I respect the journalists at Vice, this is why I appreciate the things Vice does and this shows me that the world isn't always a fun and nice place, you may meet new people, sometimes they are good and sometimes they are bad. I know I was kind of dragging on my comment but I was just speaking my mind. Thank you Vice for educating us about these things.
