Auteur theory

In film criticism, auteur theory holds that a director’s film reflects the director’s personal creative vision, as if they were the primary “auteur” (the French word for “author”). In spite of—and sometimes even because of—the production of the film as part of an industrial process, the auteur’s creative voice is distinct enough to shine through all kinds of studio interference and through the collective process.

Auteur theory draws on the work of a group of cinema enthusiasts who wrote for Cahiers du Cinéma and argued that films should reflect a director’s personal vision.

this can be seen in the works of Scorcese, Hitchock, Tarantino and Nolan

it can still be seen in the works of Edgar Wright with his fast pace high coloured visuals and over exaggerated sounds along side his use of the actors Nick Frost and Simon Pegg
