I don't know if it has been mentioned on here, but was I the only one who loved how during the montage of Bane's reign, they show the bellhop walking out of the hotel to see what the ruckus is; and he sees the army of disgruntled Gothamites/LOS members headed in his direction, then after a few cuts they cut back to the same bellhop and he's totally joined in on the mob mentality; dragging rich people on the ground?

It's both funny and pretty disturbing.
Definitely agree. It's a disturbing commentary on human nature and the herd mentality, but it's also this darkly comedic "if you can't beat 'em, join' em" sort of realization. Which in turn is also kind of disturbing. All in all, a pretty f****d up moment, haha.
