Atom Egoyan is an Armenian-Canadian filmmaker known for his films ''Film/{{Exotica}}'', ''Film/TheSweetHereafter'', ''Film/WhereTheTruthLies'' and ''Film/{{Chloe}}''. His [[SignatureStyle stylistic trademarks]] are explorations of alienation, isolation and sexuality (though often as FanDisservice, sometimes not, but at the very least always in service of the story), as well several uses of non-linear storytelling. Egoyan's rise took place in the late 1980s and early 1990s when independent film was becoming a force in Hollywood. He is generally considered on the level of Creator/StevenSoderbergh and Creator/QuentinTarantino, and is seen as one of the most important filmmakers in Canada, along with Creator/DavidCronenberg and [[Creator/DonMcKellar Don McKellar]]. His work often lends itself to WildMassGuessing, due to his occasional use of the MindScrew.
