Movie Info

This 55-minute documentary by Stanley A. Long does not offer any new insights or solutions to the issue of vice in London, though it does devote considerable time to showing what that vice is. The world of prostitution is examined, from the recruitment of rural women to the techniques of picking up customers, and from the so-called experts in massage to the overt hooker working the clientele in a near-beer bar. For most people living in the real world, there is not a lot of new information here. For some reason, the dregs of this demi-monde that kill, maim, and deal drugs are nowhere to be seen. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Audience Reviews for West End Jungle

Simply shocking! Not really, the only shocking thing about it is the fact it's not very good. West End Jungle was a "documentary" made in the early sixties bringing to light London's sex trade. As a result it was banned by the BBFC. Of course today it's hard to see what all the fuss was about, but it's at least an interesting insight in to attitudes of the time. Also, I use the term "documentary" loosely as it's pretty clear that everyone involved are "actors" (again, I used the term loosely) and the situations set up. As well as being a snapshot of the time, there is the plus that it has loads of unintentional humour! I wish I could remember some exact quotes, but the voice over narrations were hilarious!
