Feuerzeig is far more fascinated by the tabloid nature of Albert’s ascent to cult status. Sections involving celebrities like Asia Argento and Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins feel like the cinematic equivalent of name-dropping. Deeper questions about Albert’s style and artistic identity are left underexplored, strange considering the film’s abrupt title. Maybe there are just too many personalities in disorder for one feature film to handle.

The basic lesson of the greatest and most decisive neoclassical, and meta, movement in modern art, the French New Wave, is that a viewer can be simultaneously inside and outside, both aware of a filmmaker’s presence and yet be deeply moved by the drama that the artifices both create and point to. In “Author,” Feuerzeig flees from the modern mode of documentary knowledge, and from the question of questions: How does he know what he knows, and how does he deliver that knowledge to viewers?
