London in the Raw (DVD) BFI


Following on from his Take Off Your Clothes and Live, and influenced by the worldwide success of Italian ‘Mondo’ movies, which combined documentary footage with staged sequences to salacious effect, legendary British low-budget movie mogul Arnold Louis Miller concocted this fascinating exploitation-style documentary.
Peering voyeuristically behind the grimy net curtains of London life into seedy bars and clubs for beatniks ‘art lovers’ and burrowing beneath the glittering façade of the capital’s glamorous cocktail lounges and casinos, London in the Raw provides a cynical, sometimes startling, vision of life on and off the rain-spattered streets of 1960s London.
