Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1607
auteur, enamor, ponzu, tare
The tare weight of a Shyamalan film (i.e., without Shyamalan) would be practically zero, since he writes, directs, acts in, edits, and designs his movies, but it's harder to describe Kramer, however enamored of him one may be, as an auteur when his movies are clearly the result of widespread collaboration, sometimes to the point where his "vision" is more like a sauce poured over an already completed dish (something nice and vinegar-y, like ponzu, but still just a final touch).
