They have to balance that knife edge between freedom of speech and the needs of Daily Mail Middle Britain, who will doubtless be disgusted and censorious.

Hopefully, the cuts won't create ambiguity like they did in Straw Dogs, where slices to a rape scene served to make it look as if the victim begins to acquiesce and enjoy the ordeal. That's the problem with cutting for content as opposed to looking at the whole work. The BBFC has certain limits of taste that can't be breached, regardless of whether the film as a whole uses the offending images to move the story forward or raise a social point.
