Here, the camera finds mods, rockers and beatniks, an obscure band called The Zephyrs, seedy Jack the Ripper enactments, flabby men in the sauna, sordid wife-swapping parties and more. Shot just as the sixties was really starting, Primitive London shows a Britain trying to find a way of transiting from the post war depression of the 1950's and the shiny brave new world of the mid 1960's. ...Primitive London (1965) (Blu-Ray)
