Uma Thurman in "Pulp Fiction" Miramax
As the Cannes Film Festival gets underway today, IMDb has released its list of the 10 most popular films to have been screened in competition for the Palme d'Or, based on user votes. Unsurprisingly, Quentin Tarantino makes a good showing on the list, dominating in the top three spots with 1994's "Pulp Fiction" 2009's "Inglourious Basterds" and 2005's "Sin City" (for which he's credited as "special guest director" following Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez). 

Since this is a popularity vote, "Shrek" lands a spot above "Taxi Driver."

Top 10 Most Popular Cannes Films

1. Pulp Fiction (dir. Quentin Tarantino, 1994)

2. Inglourious Basterds (dir. Quentin Tarantino, 2009)

3. Sin City (dirs. Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino 2005)

4. No Country for Old Men (dirs. Joel and Ethan Coen, 2007)

5. Shrek (2001, dir. Andrew Adamson, Vicky Jenson)

6. Taxi Driver (dir. Martin Scorsese, 1976)

8. Apocalypse Now (dir. Francis Ford Coppola, 1979)

9. Drive (dir. Nicolas Winding Refn, 2011)

10. L.A. Confidential (dir. Curtis Hanson, 1997)

Meanwhile, Daniel Walber over at has ranked all 66 Palme d'Or winners from worst to best, with Jerry Schatzberg's "Scarecrow" and David Lynch's "Wild at Heart" undeservedly placed as some of the worst entries.
