Not all auteurs are authors


A film by ... who? Though the fury -- usually spurred by screenwriters -- over that pesky creature known as the possessory credit has calmed a bit, it remains a complicated topic that can stir up as much argument as can be found inside an Iowa caucus group. In one corner are directors who are perfectly happy (as far as we know) directing. Period. Their latest films, awards contenders all, don't send off the whiff of bland collaboration made by an industrial machine, but rather hit the viewer with the strong imprint of an artist at work -- alongside others, including the screenwriter.
