What a fun movie, irreverent but impactful, walking that thin line of making a point and making a joke so we'll until the very end.

There's just so much here, so many layers, all so well portrayed. Like many movies with a strong message, it does tend to champion one side and demonize the other but, in this case... We'll, it's hard to make look real good.

That said, whether intentional or not, there were some shots that really evokes a sense of how dangerous radicalism can be, regardless of what side it's on. There's a definite undertone here that goes beyond the normally portrayed tenants of racism and instead touches on a broader sense of equality, of trying to see things from another person's perspective which is endlessly important.

That said, the last couple minutes forgoes the entire tone of the movie to try and show us what's still happening today but it's jarring in the worst way and doesn't fit at all. Remove the actual news footage and this is a better movie.
