I live on a wave in the Pacific off the California coast and my home is in an abalone shell. The little mermaid is my neighbor. She’s cute.

Some of my favorite directors are: Tarentino, Kubrick, Ford, Hitchcock, Eastwood, Coppola, Cohen Bros. (more to add later)
The premise of honoring these film directors is based upon the (debatable) auteur theory — the idea that the director is the primary ‘author’ or voice of a movie (if the screenwriter is not the originator of the story), and through a director’s film, we see one person’s way of viewing the world — one that has the potential to change the way we see the world. This theory also holds that the how of a film (mise en scene, literally meaning ‘putting in the scene’) is something under the director’s control. Elements or features of mise en scene include the action, composition, sets, props, lighting, costumes, make-up, cinematographic style and technique, and visual properties – and the theory postulates that these things are more important than the what or subject of the film.
