Black Comedy ~ Wikipidia
Black comedy or dark comedy is a sub-genre of comedy and satire in which topics and events that are usually regarded as taboo, are treated in an unusually humorous or satirical manner while retaining their seriousness. The intent of black comedy, therefore, is often for the audience to experience both laughter and discomfort, sometimes simultaneously.

If anyone knows of some more or has any general critique of this list, do not hesitate to comment.

I'm surprised that Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove" hasn't been mentioned yet. A brilliant film that satifies the Black Comedy requirements, but is so much more.

And I personally feel that "Barton Fink" is in some ways the most pure Black Comedy of all the Coen Brothers' films.

Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Oct 24 10:37
Ooops, sorry. There's "Dr. Strangelove"! How'd I miss it?? So, um, yeah, uh barton fink then.
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Oct 29 5:41
Update: Oct 28th 2010

OK, so this has been a full and complete update and overall of the list. All films listed have been verified by outside sources to ensure that a film has been tagged as a "Black Comedy".

There are plenty of films that have not been added to this list so... recommendations are always helpful. Thanks :)

what about "Secretary"?
Posted: 4 years, 7 months ago at Jan 23 22:02
i dont think that "American Psycho" is a black COMEDY
but anyway cool list ;)
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at May 25 14:16
Nice list , add The Men Who Stare at Goats,I sell the dead,Drowning Mona,The Big Lebowski,Dead snow,Kick ass,Tropic thunder,RockNrolla,Snatch,Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,Sherlock Holmes , thats it from the firsthand .
Posted: 4 years, 1 month ago at Jul 23 21:07
@rogercastoror added... thanks :)

@emilia Most times it is a matter of personal taste. I certainly didn't find "Welcome To The Dollhouse" to have comedic elements but others did... so there you go...

@Budalaa I think Drowning Mona, and The Big Lebowski were sitting in limbo but your right they do fit on the list.

Great list!
Posted: 2 years, 7 months ago at Jan 25 19:09
Updated Jan 2013 - Ha, it took four days but it is updated. Over a hundred titles have been added as well as all the suggestions from Listal members.

There is more double posting of 'horror comedy' films. This is so the list more mirrors the list on Wikipedia. However, with a lot more films :)

Yay! so thanks for all the help in making this one of the most comprehensive lists of films consider to be black comedies.
Posted: 2 years, 6 months ago at Feb 9 19:38
Thanks, the film has been added :)
Posted: 2 years, 6 months ago at Feb 21 23:54
this is actually my favorite list :)
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Mar 7 1:12
I'm sorry, but since when were "Funny Games" and "Red, White, & Blue" black comedies?!

I would recommend "Bernie" by Albert Dupotel and "Buddy Boy" by Mark Hanlon, "Buddy Boy" was more psychological drama and a pretty grim study of repression and squalor, but sometimes had a black comedy feel to it.
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Mar 11 5:56
There are quite a few films on this list that I personally do not consider to be black comedies. Just as there are many comedy films that I do not think warrant the classification as a comedy film. Regardless of my personal feelings I add the films that are suggested by other Listal members and films listed on Wikipedia as black comedies.

Thank you for the recommendations but I have already added both of those films to this list a few months ago.
Posted: 2 years, 3 months ago at May 13 23:43
How about Pass The Ammo, Weekend At Bernie's, Nuns On The Run, Quick Change, Married To The Mob and Something Wild, as well?
Posted: 2 years, 2 months ago at Jun 4 15:47
@Jamie M. I added a few of those films. The others I will check out.

So, the list is sort of updated but will be updated more completely once I actually manage to watch a few more films ;)

Posted: 7 months, 3 weeks ago at Jan 4 21:04
The Interview, Canadian Bacon, High Spirits, and Bad Words, are worth adding to the list, too.
Posted: 7 months, 2 weeks ago at Jan 12 18:57
Updated but haven't added any snazzy pictures to the new entries yet.
Posted: 7 months, 1 week ago at Jan 21 17:32
Filth is definitely a black comedy, and Frank too i think? but you should check it out
