Judging destricted.

McGlynn, Clare and Rackley, Erika and Ward, Ian (2009) 'Judging destricted.', King’s law journal., 20 (1). pp. 53-67.


The film Destricted purports to explore the boundaries of art and pornography. Awarded an '18' certificate by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), the film nonetheless contains images of sexual violence and childlike sexual activity. In the context of the so-called 'porn wars' of the 1970s and 1980s, this article examines Destricted, challenging the BBFC classification and, in doing so, arguing the case for a regulatory regime that is responsive to the pragmatics as well as the principles of ethical judgement.
