    On The Rise 2012: 10 Directors Who Look To Be Bright Sparks Of The Future

    Like it or not, filmmaking is undeniably a director's medium. It wasn't always like that, of course: it was only the coming of the auteur theory in the 1950s and 1960s that popularized the idea of the director as the person responsible for all that was great and terrible about a picture.
