Great Cannes Openers

Nothing better illustrates the talent-spotting genius of the Cannes Festival than its appreciation of Martin Scorsese. The New Yorker was awarded the Palme d'Or way back in 1976 for Taxi Driver (that's 31 years before the Academy handed him an Oscar), and he was invited back to open proceedings with a black comedy that did for stand-ups comedians what his last Cannes entry had done for Manhattan cabbies. One of a handful of Cannes openers to be entered in competition, The King Of Comedy couldn't repeat Taxi Driver's trick though, despite, or perhaps because of their thematic similarities.
