I guess 'Pulp Fiction' would be a good pick.

It's a satire about the gangster milieu, the boxer milieu, veterans, drugs, ...

It seems incomplete without movies of Mel Brooks, Edgar Wright and Zuckers (lower rantings??) 

No strong objections, but to me movies that don't belong here, definitely (Three Billboards, Sanjuro, La Dolce Vita, The Graduate), maybe (Annie Hall, Gangs of Wasseypur, Being There) 

Favorite of the lot - 3 Idiots, but would vote for Life of Brian.

The idea of the poll came from Edgar Wright movies, they're some of my favorites. Since I have to contain the poll to 35 titles, I had to set some criteria. Unfortunately, they didn't make the cut.  

Three Billboards, Sanjuro, La Dolce Vita, The Graduate, Annie Hall, Gangs of Wasseypur, Being There

They're all satire and can be considered in the comedy genre too.

It is a satire in a way but isn't a comedy.

They all didn't seem like intentionally satirical in nature. About the comedy part, it's a tough one for (Three Billboards, Sanjuro, La Dolce Vita, The Graduate). It never occurred to me that they have a comedy genre. 

Nevertheless, it's good list with international movies. Since you have 1 spot, 

FYC: Balck Cat, White Cat (1998)
