Yeah. It seemed to glorify his violence. Some people mistakenly held the film up as a demonstration of how society is crumbling, missing the point entirely. So not tone deaf but more like clumsy storytelling.

I think it portrayed him as a pathetic loser who is wrapped up in conspiracy theories and blames everyone else for his miseries.   Itís more relevant today than it was in the 90s. 

It did treat some of the violence in a comedic way, with the happy-meal cutoff that sets him off, the hair trigger gun and accidental bazooka firing...   but if it didnít lighten it up a little, it would have been a dreadfully dreary film.

I get that itís not for everyone...  but just because one finds dark humour distasteful should not take away from the film itself.   It was a a good film...   but not for everyone.
