Directors: Chabrol, Claude–Auteur

Nov 13, 2022

Calude Chabrol–Auteur

Each of his films has more meaning when seen in the context with the film that preceded it and the one that followed than when it stands alone (essence of auteurism as analysis of total career)

Controlled formalism: stunning craftsmanship

Each film contains at least 3 or4 thrilling sequences

Parts of his films are often more impressive than the whole

Increasingly more restrained but also more masterful mise-en-scene
