e-Book of the Week: Something Better, Millennials And Late Capitalism At The Movies

From columnist and cultural critic Shaun Scott comes a kaleidoscopic look at the Millennials and their unique relationship to the movies. Many writers claim to be “a voice of a generation.” Scott assumes that mantle with pride in this pithy take on the moraland political significance of movies we mistook for mindless entertainment. In his debut book, the 30-year-old author reveals why cinema’s greatest contribution to popular culture is that it inspires us to imagine a better world than the breaking one his generation inherited.

Drawing on a deep well of historical knowledge, Scott tells emotional truths about American society that many would prefer not to hear. And he employs an engaging, turntable-like approach to film theory and philosophy on the way to making fresh points in unexpected ways with blinding candor. At times argumentative, frequently funny, and relentlessly reflective, “Something Better: Millennials and Late Capitalism at the Movies” introduces inquisitive readers to a public intellectual on a mission.
