London in the Raw (Flipside 002)


London in the Raw is a cynical, sometimes startling, vision of life on and off the rain-spattered streets of 60s London

- +

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.

BFI Flipside is dedicated to rediscovering the margins of British film, reclaiming a space for forgotten movies and filmmakers who would otherwise be in danger of disappearing from our screens forever. It is a home for UK cinematic oddities, offering everything from exploitation documentaries to B-movies, countercultural curios and obscure classics, If it's weird, British and forgotten, then it's Flipside.
