Part memoir-through-film, part inquiry into the effect art has on our lives, Scott Esposito’s The Doubles is a passionate, exquisitely written examination of 14 films that have made him.

Retelling one film per year, and covering 20 years of Esposito’s life from 1996 – 2016, The Doubles shows the development via film of a critical intelligence and a maturing human being. From classic cinema like A Clockwork Orange to cosmological documentaries like A Brief History of Time to offbeat works like Koyaanisqatsi and major contemporary fare like Boyhood, Esposito’s book inquires into the possibilities of a medium that has made us all.
