BFI Flipside presents
LONDON IN THE RAW (DVD + Blu-ray)
A film by Arnold L. Miller
THE FLIPSIDE: rescuing weird and wonderful British films from obscurity and presenting them in new high-quality editions.
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 fascination 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 and casinos, London in the Raw presents a cynical, sometimes startling, vision of the life in 1960s London.
