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.

It's one of those movies like Fight Club that unfortunately represents the thing its trying to satirize so well that it ends up glorifying it.
