|Films are collaborative works, so how you cite them depends on the focus of your essay. If your focus is on the director and the choices they make in telling the story, you begin your citation in the Works Cited list with the director's name (last name, first name). If your essay focuses on various aspects of the films, such as the story, the actor’s performances, and the director’s choices, start your citation with the film's title. And, remember, your in-text citation will always be keyed to the first element in your full citation.
