On Netflix: These Palme d'Or Winners are Streaming Now
Though few may have actually heard of this year's Palme d'Or winner, "Winter Sleep," it's quite possible you've heard of a few others like "The Pianist", "Pulp Fiction" and "Taxi Driver." With a Palme win comes a lifetime of immortality for the filmmaker and a solidified career as a true artist in the world of film.
Looking back at what the hundreds of various jury members picked as the festival's best films, the subject matters have been as varied as the persons who picked them. One year it's a war film, 1979's "Apocalypse Now," another it's about the students of a French classroom, 2009's "The Class." There might be nothing new under the sun, but Cannes always turns up something interesting and fresh, opening the world up to different characters, lives and experiences.
