With a focus on directors rather than on wider industry and cultural developments, this present volume complements rather than challenges the received critical understanding of the early 1970s "Hollywood Renaissance" as the modernist cinema of a few exceptionally talented auteurs. The critical consensus, with minor exceptions, identifies these mainstream industry directors as Francis Ford Coppola, Stanley Kubrick, Robert Altman, Arthur Penn, and Martin Scorsese.
