"Auteur theory" (coined by French New Waver Creator/FrancisTruffaut, redefined by American film critic Andrew Sarris) states that a film is the result of its director's personal creative vision, as if he were the primary "Auteur" (the French word for "author"), with all other creative roles (writing, acting, cinematography, score, set design etc) being subsidiary to this. While the theory technically applies to all films, it has come to signify small independent "Art House" cinema that has a high degree of quirky, "[[LeFilmArtistique artistic]]" content. More often than not an Auteur director also writes much of the content of their work in order to ensure complete control over their creative vision -- hence the stereotype of the PrimaDonnaDirector.

* Creator/{{Pixar}}'s movies [[CashCowFranchise were always successful]], but the success of ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' grew their reputation from "the pioneers of CG animation" to "the best in the business right now". A few years later, the release of ''WesternAnimation/WallE'' turned them into "the biggest name in animation", which was cemented by follow-up films ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''. Their reputation took a bit of a hit after that, but their Auteur License remains, and any questions about its viability have been answered with ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', which also scored the highest opening for an original movie in history. Andrew Stanton, director of ''Finding Nemo'' and ''WALL•E'', was granted one by Disney after they gave him a ton of money to make his passion project. Unfortunately that project was ''Film/JohnCarter'', a film which lost Disney $200 million. Stanton has since gone back to Pixar full-time.

* Director Creator/MNightShyamalan had a breakout hit with ''Film/TheSixthSense'' and was granted an Auteur License that allowed him to produce more of his signature TwistEnding films. While the next film ''Film/{{Unbreakable}}'' achieved some success, and ''Film/{{Signs}}'' was another hit. ''Film/TheVillage'' made money but lost some critical respect. His next two films were outright flops, and Shyamalan became a target of mockery. His Auteur License was revoked right after he tried to show it off in ''Film/LadyInTheWater'', and now he is having to make films from established franchises instead of his own stories. That [[Film/TheLastAirbender hasn't worked out so well either]].

** Kevin Feige maintains strict control of the MCU, making sure that all films maintain a common thematic thread. Some directors chafe at this and leave the franchise (like Jon Favreau, Joss Whedon, and Evan Wright), but those who play ball are eventually given more responsibility and a lot more creative freedom to do what they want (like the Russo Brothers[[note]]Given ''three'' of the MCU's major team-up films[[/note]], James Gunn[[note]]Allowed to do pretty much whatever he wanted with ''Guardians of the Galaxy Part 2'', and Peyton Reed[[note]]Marvel rearranged Phase 3 specifically to give him ''Ant-Man and the Wasp''[[/note]]) with the projects they are tasked with helming.
