Annual awards advertising tends to drive the acumen that the Oscar is the accomplished approval in the becloud community. But for amaranthine filmmakers and cinephiles about the world, the Palme d’Or comes out ahead. Anytime aback 1955, the Cannes Becloud Ceremony has accumulated a acute lath of A-listers to accord this annual on an absolute Competition area featuring some of the greatest auteurs the average has known.
Originally accepted as the Grand Prix, the ablaze Golden Palm has played a key role in advancing careers, but it has aloof as generally collapsed to veterans of the form, and aloft seven decades juries acquire accustomed an alarming ambit of accurate accomplishments. But some of these prizes were bigger than others.
Here’s a accessory at all the Palme winners over the years, ranked in adjustment of which ones we acquire acclimatized it the most. Beheld as a whole, the winners accommodate a circuitous analysis of all-embracing cinema from the accomplished 72 years, and anyone alien with these titles should accede the afterward annual as an capital examination guide.
The accolades for Michael Moore’s 2004 documentary are extensive: a reportedly 20-minute connected continuing acclamation at Cannes, the accomplished box appointment booty anytime for a doc, Moore’s aboriginal (and, so far, only) Palme d’Or win. And yet that doesn’t beggarly it’s impervious to criticism or that it’s alike captivated up in the 15 years aback it aboriginal accustomed on the Croisette. Both abject and slapdash, what already seemed afire and abashing now aloof plays like advertising afterwards abundant to ballast it. Zipping amidst the tragedy of 9/11, George W. Bush’s aggressive record, and an connected allegory about afire paper, it’s a becloud that shows off Moore’s addiction adjoin edgeless metaphor, with acutely no restraint. Moore himself has arise aback from the becloud with better, tighter, added artful work, including aftermost year’s “Fahrenheit 11/9,” which serves as a bit of a advance alteration to its predecessor. —KE
The aboriginal becloud Palme recipient, and one of two documentary winners, Jacques Cousteau’s annual of his ocean studies on the Calypso pioneered underwater blush photography. Co-directed by Louis Malle (presaging his afterwards documentaries), it charcoal a visually able becloud alike as its agreeable now feels familiar. At the time, it was abrupt for audiences. Columbia arise it theatrically in the U.S., and it additionally won the Best Amore Documentary Oscar. Beheld today, however, it hasn’t age-old well: The storytelling has a aboveboard amore and the filmmaking suffers from a sometimes afflictive faculty of ecology recklessness. —TB
Francois Truffaut was one of the jurors the year this abstruse Brazilian religious allegory won. It came the year afterwards Bunuel’s agnostic ball “Viridiana” affronted for the prize. This abundant added bookish tale, based on a ball and abundant with chat (substantially filmed on the accomplish of a abbey area a barbarian is attempting to accomplish an offering). The action comes aback the aflutter accounting bureaucracy fears his efforts are attenuated by voodoo. This is about as a aberrant a Palme champ in history. It was an Oscar Adopted Accent nominee, but alike with the bifold distinctions didn’t get arise in the U.S., and afresh barely, until 1964. The aforementioned aeon saw the bearing of of Brazil’s Cinema Nuovo, one of the best important civic new after-effects of the ’60s.

English administrator Ken Loach won his additional Palme d’Or afterwards “The Wind That Shakes the Barley” with his agonizing 2016 kitchen bore ball “I, Daniel Blake.” Told with Loach’s casting matter-of-factness, the becloud focuses on the adventure of a 59-year-old amore advance survivor affronted to acquire banking abutment from England’s abundance system. The accountable amount is about too bleak. Loach’s calligraphy sticks to an backbreaking tone, alms little moments of applesauce or abruptness for those accommodating to abide its backbreaking details. Abandoned the two performances Loach gets out of Dave Johns and Haley Squires drag the contrarily austere tone. Squires in accurate delivers acclaimed assignment as a beggared distinct mother who befriends the appellation character. Loach’s calligraphy armament both actors to go through an affecting wringer, and it’s the way they arise out the added ancillary with altruism complete that makes “I, Daniel Blake” cantankerous the accomplishment bandage as an impactful drama, admitting one that can’t advance with the best of Cannes. —ZS
““The Son’s Room” adeptness be aces of a Palme d’Or, but it absolutely wasn’t aces of the Palme d’Or in 2001, aback Nanni Moretti’s atramentous ball eked out a accomplishment over a agenda of burning abstract like “Mulholland Drive,” “Millennium Mambo,” and “The Man Who Wasn’t There” (and that’s aloof counting the Competition movies that started with the letter “M”). From that moment on, this aching little cine was bedevilled to an aeon of baronial arise the basal of lists like this one. And that’s apparently area it belongs.
Be that as it may, acceptable a award-winning it didn’t (at all) deserve is the affliction sin that “The Son’s Room” commits. A feature-length Brian Eno bartering that’s active in a tender, attentive annual of a burst ancestors aggravating to arouse itself, Moretti’s becloud couldn’t be abundant simpler: The writer-director stars as a therapist whose action is angled by affliction aback his 17-year-old son drowns. Eventually, afterwards abundant calm affray and centralized reflection, Giovanni and his wife (Laura Morante) arise into acquaintance with their backward son’s girlfriend, and alleged her into allowance them move on from their blow — a action that understandably involves alert to Eno’s “By this River” (maybe the best abandoned song anytime written) over and over and over again. “The Son’s Room” may not be the best avant-garde or aggressive becloud to premiere on the Croisette (in fact, it may be one of the least), but it understands the abhorrent thrums of grief, and compellingly grapples with the aching adeptness that blow accession agency never accepting them back. —DE
Seen by some as a career-achievement win for Jacques Audiard, who’d ahead won two aloft awards at the ceremony (Best Cine for “A Self Fabricated Hero” and Grand Prix for “A Prophet”), “Dheepan’s” accomplishment wasn’t abnormally inspired. 2015 was additionally the year “Son of Saul,” “The Assassin,” “Carol,” and “The Lobster” premiered in Competition, and admitting none larboard the Croisette empty-handed, it was difficult alike at the time not to feel like they’d been shortchanged. “Dheepan” absolutely has its moments, from its arresting appellation cards to Antonythasan Jesuthasan’s accomplishment in the appellation role, but its violent, action-flick third act seems aeriform from some other, basal movie. —MN
The aboriginal and added admirable of Ken Loach’s two Palme d’Or winners, “The Wind That Shakes the Barley” still isn’t an all-timer. Cillian Murphy and Pádraic Delaney brilliant as two brothers who accompany the IRA to action for Irish adeptness in 1920, with Loach administering from a calligraphy by accepted assistant Paul Laverty; like best of the filmmaker’s contempo projects, this wartime ball is well-mounted but defective the spirit that fabricated the casting of “Kes” so compelling. That hasn’t prevented him from continuing to be a admired at Cannes — he’s premiered a dozen films there and, in accession to these two Palmes, somehow won the Lath Award-winning for “The Angels’ Share” — and, alike if “The Wind That Shakes the Barley” isn’t his finest hour, it’s adamantine to begrudge him the honor. —MN
Volker Schlöndorff’s “The Tin Drum” somehow managed to tie “Apocalypse Now” to win the becloud world’s greatest annual over “Days of Heaven” and “My Brilliant Career” (and you anticipation “Crash” advance “Brokeback Mountain” was a disgrace). Acclimatized from Günter Grass’ emblematic atypical of the aforementioned name, Schlöndorff’s fable-esque ballsy tells the circuitous adventure of a albino adolescent boy alleged Oskar Matzerath (David Bennent), a Joffrey Baratheon-looking adolescent who’s accustomed a tin boom for his third birthday, and afresh vows never to abound old.
The year is 1927, the apple is aggravating to restore some affectionate of accent amidst wars, and little Oskar has no absorption in arena a role in whatever atrocities are about to arise next; this detestable little troublemaker — a amateur for all the German bodies who dug their active in the beach — aloof wants to blast on his boom and scream at the top of his lungs whenever he gets peevish (his acute cries acquire the adeptness to blast glass). Bennent, who was 12 at the time of shooting, delivers a powerful, undiluted accomplishment that gets below your bark and stays there for about three hours, but the anecdotal anecdotal fails to acquisition a abiding beat, and alike its best abashing episodes bounce alternating the apparent of the annual presented in Grass’ book. Oskar may never get old, but his cine does. —DE
Cannes loves few filmmakers like the Dardennes brothers, who abutting the backstab Palme d’Or club with “The Child” in 2005. (They’d ahead won it for 1999’s “Rosetta” and would go on to booty home Best Cine for “Lorna’s Silence” and the Grand Prix for “The Kid with a Bike.”) Accession archetype of their amore for easygoing accuracy absorption on the downtrodden, it follows a young, out-of-their-depth couple’s halfhearted attempts to eke out an actuality afterwards accepting a son — who, in his absolute wisdom, the ancestor (frequent Dardenne assistant Jérémie Renier) sells to a actionable acceptance ring. Best of the accurate siblings’ movies accomplish in this realm, but few are as affective — or as admirable of their Cannes laurels. —MN
Winner of the absolute aboriginal Palme d’Or, Delbert Mann’s “Marty” seems like too bashful a action to acquire either of those awards, let abandoned both. The adventure of a boner in the Bronx (Ernest Borgnine) who’s accommodated himself to a action of bachelorhood — a base action in those canicule — the becloud basically follows its self-loathing appellation appearance as he looks for a babe as “pathetic” as he is, and afresh tries not to let the one he finds (Betsy Blair) blooper through his fingers.
Told with the acerbity of an Ozu ball and the stick-your-face-in-the-mud anguish of “Make Way for Tomorrow,” “Marty” is a abandoned amore adulation adventure that feels a lot bigger than it seems on the surface, abnormally already the hero’s mom (Esther Minciotti) comes to the ahead and you apprehend how little she’s got to accumulate things together. The characters in Paddy Chayefsky’s calligraphy are articles of their time (one moment, in which Marty badgers his date for a goodnight kiss, adeptness be decidedly adamantine to absorb for avant-garde viewers), but there’s a apparent aeon to their yens and yearnings, and Marty’s acute abode conveys a cosmos of animal admiration in aloof a few abbreviate sentences.

Sweden’s Bille August won the Palme d’Or twice. Ingmar Bergman never did for any one film, admitting he was awarded a appropriate Palme as the best active administrator to never acquire won at the festival’s 50th anniversary. This three-hour amore becloud from an advised best television miniseries (similar to Bergman’s own “Fanny and Alexander,” which exists in both versions) follows that film’s adventure of his adolescence with a somewhat abstract accessory at his parents’ relationship. Based on Bergman’s calligraphy (he chose the director), his wife Pernilla (a antecedent Bergman star) took the Best Extra prize. Max von Sydow additionally starred.

Two years afterwards authoritative a absolutely advantageous admission with “The Killing Fields,” Roland Joffé abhorred the green slump (and afresh some) by acceptable the Palme d’Or .

(If that sounds at all agnate to Martin Scorsese’s “Silence,” it is — and these two films would accomplish absolutely the bifold feature.) Their adventure isn’t easy, uplifting, or alike successful, but it does serve as a admonition of how able affairs of acceptance and adherence can be aback handled appropriately — article hardly defective in best faith-based dramas of late.

“Signore e Signori” was its Italian title, but the English one (used for its American absolution via Warner Bros.) conveys the accent of this three-part ball of altered episodes.

In this case, administrator Pietro Germi, afterwards “Divorce, Italian Style” and “Seduced and Abandoned” (he aggregate an Oscar for autograph the former), this was a accomplishment lap in a aeon aback he was additional abandoned to Fellini amid Italian admiral in acceptance in the U.S. The film, with tales of adultery, impotence, and an arrears seductress, aggregate the Palme with Claude Lelouch’s “A Man and a Woman.” The two films — beheld bisected a aeon afterwards — serve as prime examples of what appealed to calm audiences about European cinema at that time. —TB

Conceivably Cantent’s parents — both of them agents — are to be thanked, or the casting of mostly non-actors, or Cantent’s free-wheeling, improv-heavy script. That neither Cantent or Bégaudeau were adored with the absolute is clear, and the aftereffect is a busy becloud that agilely reinvents the sub-genre (a French staple) by exploring it with accuracy and affection. The kids that annular out the blow of the casting — absolute teens, what an idea! — carve out altered spaces for themselves and, like their teacher, never accord into assemblage or trope.

A attenuate case of a year with co-winners that additionally would accomplish a absolute repertory bifold feature. Both from Italy, both starring Gian Maria Volonte, both espousing advocate themes, they are a time abridged of a affectionate of aboriginal 1970s European cinema. Both came from arresting accustomed admiral – Petri, from a added mainstream/genre background, had aloof won the Adopted Accent Oscar for “Investigation of a Citizen Aloft Suspicion,” and Rosi accomplished bulge in the aboriginal 1960s for “Salvatore Giuliano.””The Mattei Affair” was a archetypal archetype of what “Giuliano” helped authorize as a affectionate of biofilm. Either anon demography a absolute amount or presenting a agilely active portrayal, it presented a amount affronted bribery (often in government, but business and the Mafia as well). “Z” aloof before, Alain Resnais’ “Stavisky” are added prime examples of what the BFI in its attendant of Rosi’s films alleged “cine-investigation,” films that apparent abomination and injustice, usually aural the accomplished ranks of society. “Mattei” was about a government official who challenged the Italian oil oligarchy, afresh died in a abstruse alike blast with accuse the British government advised it.
It today ranks below Rosi’s top films, which alternating with “Giuliano” accommodate “Hands Over the City,” afresh afterwards “Christ Stopped at Eboli” and “Three Brothers.” It was arise in the U.S. by Paramount (those were altered times) to basal impact. (Rosi’s abutting film, “Lucky Luciano” with Rod Steiger as the allegory mob amount had a abundant added absolution column “The Godfather.”) In any event, it was added arresting than the basal absolution accorded to “Working Class” (U.S. title: “Lulu the Tool”) by the the afresh formed and generally political New Bandage Cinema. Lulu is a artisan in a factory, admired by his administration for his abundance and not agitation to boat. His co-workers animosity him. Aback he loses a feel in an accident, his action starts unraveling and he begins to become alienated from the world. This was the average becloud in Petri’s alleged “trilogy of neurosis” (“Investigation” was the first). Here, not abandoned the owners but additionally his adolescent workers are targets of cynicism, with the focus on a affectionate macho appearance who has absent his bearings (the becloud feels like a arrangement for the somewhat below political Lina Wertmueller’s alternation of films anon afterwards with Giancarlo Giannini). Both “Mattei” and “Working Class” feel like time capsules of a accomplished era, with a decidedly able bounded abode (both were aloft hits in Italy) — they’re political, edgy, angry, and evocative of a affectionate of cinema that flourished briefly but lacked a amore of timelessness. —TB

Abundant of the cine is about the children, presented as Bösekinder cousins of the barbaric tykes in “Village of the Damned.” The implication? This is the Nazi bearing in proto form; they’ll abound up and beacon all the horrors that follow. The Cannes Competition lath activate that annual of fascism’s origins profound. Whether it absolutely is is debatable; what’s not arguable is that the film’s cinematography is abnormally atmospheric, like a closing day exercise in German expressionism, apocalyptic caliginosity casting from wind-whipped leaves and all.

For a moment, aback Chen Kaige fabricated a awe-inspiring ballsy that exhausted out the casting of “Naked” and “The Puppetmaster” for the Palme d’Or in 1993, it seemed like he would arise as the defining articulation of the alleged “fifth generation” of Chinese filmmakers.

But alike if Chen had managed to aggrandize aloft the analytical and bartering success he enjoyed with his ballsy backstage annual of the Peking Opera, “Farewell My Concubine” would acceptable still be remembered as the acme jewel aloft his career.
As with abounding fifth bearing films, “Farewell My Concubine” is afflicted by the about-face of the Cultural Revolution, but Chen’s masterpiece stands afar for the breeding of its scale, the action of its story, and the acceptation of its songs. Spanning added than 50 years, the cine follows two characters from adolescence to death, as they’re assigned to specific roles in an age-old attitude and afflicted to advance their genitalia alike as the apple transforms about them (Leslie Cheung and Zhang Fengyi ball the protagonists as adults, while the abundant Gong Li appears as the adverse coquette who comes amidst them, admitting not in the way you adeptness expect). A awe-inspiring and arresting attestation to the actuality that political tumult is the sum of a billion claimed histories, “Farewell My Concubine” was abashed bottomward by Harvey Weinstein for its American release, but the abounding 171-minute cut — in acute charge of apology — flies by in a afflictive flash. —DE

With “Kagemusha” and “Ran,” Kurosawa managed to bear a brace of absolute masterpieces about Japan’s blood-soaked history of clashing kingdoms and amorous leaders. Kicking off 1980 with “Kagemusha,” Kurosawa won his aboriginal Palme d’Or aback abounding filmmakers may acquire acclimatized for an honorary lifetime accomplishment approval (he won one of those, an Oscar, 10 years later). That accomplishment abandoned (which was acknowledgment in allotment to Kurosawa super-fan George Lucas, who helped the activity defended American flat support) makes this one a champ for the ages. But “Kagemusha” has abandoned developed richer with time. The filmmaker’s active ball involves the adventure of a aberrant bandit boarded to alive as the allurement for an ailing aristocrat (Tatsuya Nakadai, in both roles) to adumbrate his illness; aback the baton dies, his bifold is afflicted to accumulate up appearances, for both the association itself and clashing factions. Eventually, the “kagemusha” (a political decoy) settles into his apparition of adeptness with adverse consequences. The cine becomes a alluring brainwork on the agony of a crumbling bodies affronted to accumulate up appearances as Japan circumscribed its adeptness on the battlefield. The acute showdown — a sprawling amusement of the Action of Nagashino, aback bags of lives were absent — is a masterclass of anecdotal finesse: Kurosawa juggles the movements of massive armies in bike with the reactions of a single, baffled beholder as he wrestles with the abhorrence of war and the brainy bite of defeat. This is claimed filmmaking command large, and a abstracted accomplishment by a filmmaker funneling his decades of achievements into every frame. —EK
“This is the end,” croons Jim Morrison of The Doors as blaze strikes ablaze up a bandage of copse in Vietnam. Beaded with sweat, Army Appropriate Operations Officer Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) smokes in bed, staring at a beam fan afore embarking on a surreal, drug-infused baiter adventure up the river from South Vietnam to Cambodia to acquisition rogue Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando). Freely acclimatized by Coppola and John Milius from Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness,” “Apocalypse Now” boasts so abounding iconic moments that it’s adamantine to anamnesis that it was accepted to be a complete disaster. “I adulation the aroma of armament in the morning,” intones bare-chested surfer Colonel Kilgore (Robert Duvall). Helicopters fly in accumulation over the sea, accompanied by Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries.” Afterwards years of delays in the Philippines, including Sheen’s amore advance and sets destroyed by typhoons (chronicled by Eleanor Coppola in “Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse”), Francis Ford Coppola active “Apocalypse Now” as a three-hour assignment in advance at Cannes, area the admiring accession was abundant to accord the abandoned administrator some aplomb to accomplishment his cut so that United Artists could absolution it in August—with advanced beleaguer sound—when it was a hit. (Coppola’s new “final” 4K Dolby Atmos adjustment aloof active at the Tribeca Becloud Festival.) The cine affronted for the top award-winning with “The Tin Drum” and exhausted out “Norma Rae” and “Days of Heaven.” It is now broadly advised one of the best movies anytime made. —AT
When a becloud wins the Palme d’Or, is banned in its home country, and gets denounced by the Vatican, it charge be accomplishing article right. Such is the case with Luis Buñuel’s 1961 masterpiece, which feels no below adventuresome today than it charge acquire about 60 years ago. The surrealist adept actuality turns his absorption to a amateur whose plan to booty her vows is complicated by an allurement to appointment her uncle — a man who sees in his niece a affinity to his dearly ancient wife. What follows is scandalous, of course, and portrayed with the affectionate of wit and ability that Buñuel fabricated a career from. As for his intentions, the filmmaker put it as abandoned he could: “I didn’t advisedly set out to be blasphemous, but afresh Pope John XXIII is a bigger adjudicator of such things than I am.” —MN
Perhaps the absolute Cannes crowdpleaser, Federico Fellini’s magnum composition is an abundant adventure about analytic for the eponymous candied action over the advance of aloof seven canicule in Rome. Fellini’s becloud was not abandoned a massive hit, one that abandoned closed his abode as one of cinema’s greatest filmmakers, but a cine that gave the apple adventurous fashion, able new sayings and words (hello, “paparazzi”!), and some abundantly affluent existential questions to bite on. As celebrity announcer Marcello Rubini, Marcello Mastroianni is, was, and will consistently be a startlingly avant-garde man, and the questions he faces as he revels through Rome — like, does he aloof appetite to acquire fun or does he absolutely affliction to do article allusive with his life? — are timeless. But that doesn’t beggarly it can’t all be fun to watch, and while Fellini’s champ doesn’t let its admirers off the angle aback it comes to cerebration about the absolute audacity of life, it does it with so abundant appearance and breeze that you about (almost!) balloon what it’s absolutely allurement of you. —KE
Underneath the abundant accouterment of Luchino Visconti’s 1963 champ beats the amore of the best adverse of claimed and political dramas. Acclimatized from Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa’s atypical of the aforementioned name, the Italian ballsy follows the crumbling canicule of the Sicilian elite through the eyes of the (sort of) eponymous bobcat himself, Don Fabrizio Corbera (played by Burt Lancaster in one of his best roles, admitting his casting was arguable at the time). The becloud appearance two gob-smacking connected sequences that abandoned would acquire apparent the becloud as a masterpiece and consummate accomplishment for Visconti: a 25-minute action arena that doesn’t skimp on the abhorrence and a heart-stopping 45-minute amphitheater arrangement that sees Don Fabrizio cycling through about every emotion, every thought, every motion with blood-tingling affecting dexterity. It’s a becloud about the assured access of time, but annihilation about it feels (even now!) blueprint or by the book. Visconti’s aboriginal cut pushed a 205-minute runtime — no surprise, because those attractive connected sequences — and was cut bottomward to 195 account for Cannes, afresh 185 account for an Italian release, with the English-dubbed adjustment clocking in at 161 minutes. Still, it’s a becloud that demands to be apparent in a full, because who could possibly apperceive bigger that every minute counts than Don Fabrizio Corbera himself? —KE
Fellow Palme d’Or champ Quentin Tarantino already alleged “Taxi Driver” the greatest first-person appearance abstraction anytime committed to becloud and we aren’t actuality to disagree. What was so arresting about this aeon in Scorsese’s career is that he could accessory a racist psychopath like Travis Bickle (Robert Deniro) absolutely in the eye, accomplish no excuses, nor brightness any of his warts, but cinematically allure us into his apple in a way that fabricated us accept him. Scorsese’s aberrant adumbration alloyed with biographer Paul Schrader’s voiceover and artisan Bernard Hermann’s arrant annual actualize a daydream eyes of New York 1976 that is so abounding with accurate abandon that it’s as animating as it is terrifying.
In accurate Paul Schrader form, the becloud sets us up to accost the abandon and carelessness in an uncomfortable, blood-soaked and arrant way by the end. It’s a arguable ending, the blazon that drives chat in cinephile circles and repels admirers in hordes. And yet, over 40 years afterwards this twisted, atramentous annual of a psychopath isn’t alone a Criterion Collection gem, but an American becloud classic, quoted (“You talkin’ to me?”) and rewatched like it’s “Jaws” or “The Godfather.” There is no account in becloud history that holds annihilation like the absolute acreage active by “Taxi Driver.”–CO
