Tarantino up for top Cannes prize

Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof, half of his double bill Grindhouse (2007), and Van Sant's Paranoid Park join 20 other entries in competition for the Palme d'Or.

The Coen brothers are among the contenders with their latest thriller, No Country For Old Men.

And several high-profile films will receive their premieres out of competition.

US director Michael Moore, who won the Palme d'Or in 2004 for Fahrenheit 9/11, returns with his new documentary Sicko, about the US healthcare system.
