The Popcorn Auteur
About This Show
The concept is pretty straightforward. We pick a famous filmmaker and watch every film that he or she wrote and directed over a short time-frame. Then, we research the filmmaker’s history and critical assessments of their work. Finally, we talk about the films, consistent themes throughout, and answer definitively: is this filmmaker a true auteur and do we like him?
