“I’ll refrain from pursuing the theme of auteurism as a religious faith, probably heretical.”

The main difference is that auteurism depends upon the ability to amass a large amount of evidence…the very opposite of religious belief, which exists on pure ‘faith’. Indeed, it seems to me that auteurism has more in common with Darwinism, as an unarguable explanation of how films/people come into existence, and why they look the way they do. And, as with Darwinism, it constantly astonishes me that there are still individuals who deny all the evidence and insist that films are delivered by the stork.
