Satires tend to inflate real life like a parade balloon until it pops under the pressure of its own contradictions, using irony and exaggeration to highlight the world’s absurdities, and film and filmmakers have a long tradition of employing satire to great effect. Ridiculous, biting and often times uncomfortable, these are our picks for the 10 best satire films of all time.

From Dustin Hoffman and a dry parody of young love in The Graduate and Stanley Kubrick and Tom Cruise with intimate satires of love or the lack thereof in Eyes Wide Shut to media industry satires like digging into fandoms with Galaxy Quest, reality TV with Jim Carrey in The Truman Show, there aren’t many off limits topics when it comes to Hollywood parody. Religious satires like Kevin Smith and Dogma or the racism skewering works of Jordan Peele in Get Out, Us and the recent Nope, to the send ups of war and indictments of colonialism in films like Starship Troopers or MASH, there’s plenty of satire to choose from and it was VERY hard to narrow down.

This Movie List was written and edited by Billy Jackson.
