I recently watched Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove and Wes Anderson's The Royal Tenenbaums, and I now realize how much I love black humor! I prefer these straight-faced comedies that often deal with dark topics to most any other type of humor. They often are more intelligent, have interesting plots and/or well developed characters, and there's just something about characters taking themselves extremely seriously that can add a tremendous amount of humor to a scene. I haven't seen many of them, so I thought I'd ask here: What are your favorite black comedies? I'm not talking about slapstick, laugh-a-minute movies (and sitcoms with laugh tracks are the polar opposite of what I'm referring to). Black comedies are more likely to be the movies that you can watch several times and finally, on the third or fourth viewing, discover several subtle jokes you had previously missed because they were not presented in a typically comedic manner. Other examples I can think of are Terry Gilliam's Brazil and many Coen brothers movies (although not O Brother). Here are some comedies that do NOT fit this description: Blazing Saddles There's Something About Mary Father of the Bride Meet the Parents Spaceballs anything by Monty Python (I'm not saying these movies are bad--I love several of them. They're just not the focus of this thread.) Thanks for reading. So what's your favorite black comedy?
