Examines the idea of film authorship: does film, most often an industrial and collaborative medium, allow for the director's "individual" expression? Can we speak of a Woody Allen film in the same way that we speak of a Shakespeare play or a Jane Austen novel?
Focus for Fall 2009 is the film actor (Pitt, Davis, Streep).
