he Cinematic Auteur. Auteur theory in film suggests not only that a director is the primary author of a film, but also that the film must be analyzed within the context of
the director’s other films. Directors create certain expectations with their films much in the same way authors create certain expectations with their writing.
As you construct your initial post, focus on the importance of auteur theory in film analysis and interpretation.
Name a director who you would consider an auteur and explain your reasoning.
Discuss the arguments against auteur theory and provide examples to support your points.
Examine how the auteur theory influences audiences and critics, using examples from film criticism, film marketing campaigns, and your own personal experience.
Include the name of the director you identified in the “Subject” line of your discussion. Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length. Support your claims with
examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly sources, and properly cite any references. By Day 7, respond to at least two of your classmates who have
named a different director than you. In each response, discuss whether or not you agree with your classmate’s assertion that the director being considered is an auteur,
and be sure to provide examples to support your position. Each response should be a minimum of 125 words.
