10 Most Popular Cannes Films

Posted by & filed under SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

The Cannes Film Festival will begin in just a couple days, and IMDB wanted to celebrate by putting together a list of the Top 10 Cannes Films. The list includes films that have been screened at Cannes for a Palme d’Or (Golden Palm) and the results were based on IMDB user votes.

“IMDb users ranked Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Pulp Fiction‘ #1 amongst all of the films ever to compete for the Palme d’Or (the grand prize of Cannes) since the film festival began,” said Keith Simanton, IMDb’s managing editor. “Another Tarantino film he also wrote and directed, ‘Inglourious Basterds,’ claimed the #2 slot on our user-selected list. Of the two, only 1994’s ‘Pulp Fiction’ (#1) went on to win the coveted Palme d’Or prize. Two other films on our users’ top 10 list also won the Palme d’Or: Taxi Driver (#6) in 1976 and Apocalypse Now (#8), which had to share the prize with Volker Schlondorff’s The Tin Drum, in 1979.”
