Summarize briefly the ways in which this director meets those criteria using examples from at least two of the director’s films.
Apply the lens of auteur theory in breaking down the director’s technical competence, distinguishable personality, and interior meaning using specific examples of his/her work (e.g., particular scenes or plot components).
