Auteurism - the ideea that a director of a film is its source of meaning and should retain creative control over the finished product - has been one of film studies' most important paradigms ever since the French 'nouvelle vague' of the late 1950s, and the adoption of the term auteur by Andrew Sarris.
Through the work of five important contemporary directors working in the French language, this book explores the ways in which the meaning of auteur has changed over this half-century. Its five dense and wide-ranging introductory essays to the films of Olivier Assayas, Jacques Audiard, the Dardenne brothers, Michael Haneke and Francois Ozon combine French philosophical and sociological approaches with methodologies from the Anglo-American fields of gender studies, queer theory and postmodernism.
This volume will be of interest to researchers working in French and European cinema and to students of film studies, European cinema, and French and Francophone studies, as well as to film enthusiasts."-BOOK BLURB Notes: includes bibliographical references

From his clutch of provocative and award-winning shorts in the mid-1990s to his increasingly celebrated features, including Swimming Pool, Les Amants criminels, and 5x2, as well as the star-studded, millenial classic of high camp, 8 femmes, Ozon's films have remaned silmultaneously seductive and experimental, playful and gruesome. What emerges from Andrew Asibong's passionate and highly engaged scrutiny of Ozon's cinema, however, is the extent to which the director's breezily confrontational work throws up urgent and unavoidable questions about the cinematic representation of pyschic, familial, social, and even ontological transformation. Asibong considers how Ozon's apparently subversive explorations of feminine and 'queer' desire, as well as his ongoing fascination with sadomasochistic power relations, all operate at a far more ambivalent psychoanalytic and political level than either Ozon's champions or detractors seem willing to admit. He then goes on to suggest that what may be at stake in Ozon's alternatively utopian and cynical flirtation with the construction and deconstruction of contemporary human relationships on film."
