In its own words, when it comes to “18”, just what is the point of the BBFC

The BBFC has passed Lars von Trier’s ANTICHRIST uncut. Their line is that it isn’t a ‘sex work’, but a serious piece of filmmaking. 

They go on to point out that the film is  “acceptable at ’18’ where, in line with the consistent findings of the BBFC’s public consultations, the BBFC’s Guideline concerns will not normally override the wish that adults should be free to chose their own entertainment, within the law.”

Yes, you read that correctly, read it again just to make sure: “adults should be free to chose their own entertainment, within the law.”
