Despite some Crash-style calls for a ban, the BBFC passed Michael Winterbottom’s adaptation of Jim Thompson’s pulp noir novel uncut concluding that its ‘portrayals of strong sexual and sadistic violence and sadomasochistic sexual behaviour... do not eroticise or endorse sexual assault or pose a credible harm risk to viewers over 18.’ In the 21st century, and in the light of public consultation, the BBFC now prides itself on ‘the principle that adults should be free to choose their own entertainment within the law’.
