    Without doubt the best film festival with arguably the most prestigious award.

    More often than not they get it right, unlike the Oscars. Some American films that debuted and won the Palm D'or include Taxi Driver, The Conversation, Apocalypse Now, Barton Fink, Wild at Heart, Elephant, & Sex Lies and Videotape.

    You know that episode is based in part on Richard Kelly's ordeal with Southland Tales.


    Some trailers for some of the films.
