The little-dick film snobs lost their shit over this:

 

However, feature-length narrative cinema made by mostly white male auteurs dominated the collection. These are not the films that need seeing or saving. They may not circulate widely in popular culture, but they account for almost our entire institutional and disciplinary canon. And despite the collective anxiety about their disappearance, they will endure in archives, film studies programs and, yes, even online …More radically, however, we might ask whether these are the works we need to rescreen or urge others to discover.

 

FilmStruck wasn’t that good for movies. Don’t mourn its demise.

 

What an absolute gift it would be to escape the corrupt inheritance of the auteur — a 20th-century invention; film scholars have the receipts — and the long shadow of a canon that has compelled generations of students to mimic the powers of patriarchy and colonialism, to play at corporate theater, or to wonder about their own exclusion from what they see on screen.
