In search of Black Comedy

Recently, I've been interested in multimedia featuring aspects of black comedy or cynical characters in otherwise mundane settings. Searching on my own is more or less inefficient and I'm looking for any recommendations which fall into this category.

It's difficult to describe why this genre appeals to me but I've always found it odd method of coping with troublesome events in life. Some movies I liked would be Heathers
and World's Greatest Dad
. For books I don't mind nonfiction or fiction as long as it fits into the theme. Ideally, in should be still in print because it's a bit of a challenge to find out-of-print books nowadays. Articles are nice too, the most recent Mefi post
is a good example of what I've looking for too.
I guess, you could call it dry humor too.
However, I'm not so much as looking for satire or parody atm. TV series are alright but I tend to be impatient with long running series and I prefer movies overall. Thanks.
