An auteur is a French term for a director whose individual style and complete control over all elements of production give a film its personal and unique stamp. This year seems to have a high number of these film makers and their dazzling work is receiving a lot of attention and acclaim. The New York Times has selected seven writer/directors to profile and they are Barry Jenkins ("Moonlight"), David Chazelle ("La La Land"), Mike Mills ("20th Century Women"), Andrea Arnold ("American Honey"), Jeff Nichols ("Loving"), Kenneth Lonergan ("Manchester By The Sea") and Tom Ford ("Nocturnal Animals") and features video interviews with some of the film makers who discuss pivotal scenes in their films.
