This is not how I imagined it would end.
I might be missing historical and social context, but the movie seemed monumentally misjudged in its depiction of police brutality — not least against people with mental health issues — as comedy. Even though the film clearly presents the local police force as useless clowns, their brutal actions are consistently played for laughs. Watching this tonight in Brussels, Belgium, where the audience* kept laughing at the torture innocent people were subjected to, was one of the most awkward and disturbing experiences I've ever had at the movies.
* Admittedly, Belgian audiences inexplicably and disturbingly tend to laugh during the most inappropriate and dramatic movie scenes.
