Synopsis:
Following on from his 'Take Off Your Clothes and Live', and influenced by the worldwide success of Italian 'Mondo' movies, legendary British low-budget movie mogul Arnold Louis Miller concocted this fascinating exploitation-style documentary. Peering behind the grimy net curtains of London life into seedy bars and clubs, and burrowing beneath the glittering facade of the capital's glamorous cocktail lounges and casinos, 'London in the Raw' presents a cynical, sometimes startling, vision of life in 1960s London.

A bit slow and a bit tame - London in the Raw review by PD

Spoiler Alert
16/01/2018

This is one of the unusual films where the sequel was better than the original. I would recommend watching the sequel Primitive London first and come back to this if you want more.

Both films are a collection of titilation mixed in with supposedly serious commentary and documentary footage that looks like it was included just to get the film past the censors and critics. The result is a fascinating and sometimes bizarre mishmash of 1960s London.

Primitive London keeps a brisk pace and is braver on selecting its subject matter. In contrast this film lingers too long on most of its subjects and is less ambitious.
