The Problem With Auterism

"The idea of the movie director as author (or, “Auteurism”) is something that has been bothering me for some time. Yes, I know that Pauline Kael already said her piece on it, along with multiple other smartasses who mock moviebuff fawning over the likes of Speilberg, Johnnie To, Miyazaki, Brad Bird, Guillermo Del Toro, Spike Lee and even Ava Duvernay (and yes, I am guilty of this). Me? Well, my issues with auteurism come from both studying the process of moviemaking and from actual moviemaking experience."
