Alexandre Astruc (13 July 1923 – 19 May 2016) was a French film critic and film director.

His role in the auteur theory is noted in his notion of the caméra-stylo or "camera-pen" and the idea that a director should wield his camera like a writer uses his pen and that he need not be hindered by traditional storytelling.
