Abstract

Auteurism has a long history in film culture and film studies, with “visionary” directors frequently providing a focal point for readings, and celebrations, of cinematic art (see Staiger). In a recent analysis of US and UK film reviews, Annemarie Kersten and Denise Bielby conclude:
[C]omments related to Auteurism are … significantly more prominent in reviews of films that received critical recognition. Specifically, criticism that focuses on the director as a creative visionary and the interpretation of the universe he or she presents is used the least in reviews of popular films, more so in those of professional [or film industry] prizewinners, and most in reviews of films that achieve critical acclaim. (194–95)
