London in the Raw 1964 15

47 mins United Kingdom Director. Arnold Louis Miller

Influenced by the success of Italian ‘Mondo’ movies, British low-budget movie mogul Arnold Louis Miller concocted this exploitation-style documentary. Peering behind the grimy net curtains of London life into seedy bars and clubs, and burrowing beneath the glittering façade of the capital’s glamorous cocktail lounges, London in the Raw presents a cynical, startling vision of life in 1960s London.

This title is also available on DVD / Blu-ray in the BFI’s Flipside collection.
