Just out of interest, aside from the UK, where has Audition been shown on television?

OK, so what I was obliquely trying to suggest is that standard 
definitions of "gratuitous" won't work so well for Miike. Thanks to the 
irony and self-conscious, "light" approach to everything he does, the 
very "gratuitousness" of the violence is in its own way "thematic." I'd 
be very impressed if you could get Audition on television without 
censorship, though. Go for it.
