Here's something the distributor could do, if they were minded to. Get Camden Council to approve the uncut version of A Serbian Film and show it at the Odeon Covent Garden, which is IIRC the nearest cinema in Camden's jurisdiction to the West End. It was after all Westminster Council who insisted that A Serbian Film be BBFC-vetted before Frightfest could show it.

This is assuming that Camden Council did approve the uncut version. But there is a precedent for this. Before the BBFC finally passed The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (in 1999 - was it really that long ago?), it showed at the same cinema with a Camden 18 certificate.

Uncut screenings of BBFC-cut films with council approval...debates on censorship... It'll be like the 60s and 70s all over again!
