Great attention to detail is often an inherent part of what defines a great movie: it's also the feature that separates the auteurs and directorial geniuses from the hacks who just turn up to get paid and abuse the catering budget.

In most cases, directors will spend as much time as the production schedule will allow to imbue their movies with as many fine details as possible.
