Euros have a more world weary pessimism than Americans do. So they can go to dark places and have fun with it. In America, if you're not smiling and cheery, people will think something's wrong with you. w00t!

Dr Stangelove is the first that comes to mind because I think it's my favorite movie.. but actually not sure.

My favorites are the Scandinavians, especially the Danes and the Finns.

Factotum, O'Horten, The Bothersome Man (great gore too) and my favorite, Festen (The Celebration).

A SHOCK TO THE SYSTEM might be considered a comedy with a dark twist, because of what happened to Michael Caine at the end.

Hmm, I'd have mentioned the "Doctor" right off, but three or four ahead of me have already done so!

Anyway, I just wrapped up a dark-comedy spec that's taglined "Dr. Strangelove for Beheaders". It doesn't end up with the end of the world, but geopolitically it's probably worse than 9/11.
