People think "auteur theory" is for fancy-schmancy serious artistes like Stanley Kubrick or Francois Truffaut, but the theory applies just as strongly to people like Michael Bay and David Ayer. And Ayer's latest, The Tax Collector, just solidifies the man's "auteurship." You got yourself the requisite heavily tattooed, angry men with shaved heads, deep into some serious criminal activity, and toting large guns with loud, fiery barrels to go along with dialog that seems to be made of nothing more than profanity, nails, and childhood trauma. Oh yeah, and one of those angry men? Shia LaBeouf. It's auteurs all over this thing, baby!
