Showdown

Bamboozled

Best satirical films

Add a list or tag with showdown:satire

How very. With Parasite holding fast to its spot as highest-rated of the decade, and “anti-hate satire” Jojo Rabbit having just premiered at TIFF, the time feels ripe to look into the heart of an artichoke. The rules of the game? Celebrate the greatest big-screen satires by listing your ten favorite trope-busting films. The very best in show manage to be a bit of everything: unsettling commentaries on society, spoofy genre send-ups, gleefully silly and/or eminently quotable punfests, and very often better than the source material they skewer. Get voting, because Paul Metzler doesn’t deserve to win.
