Aside from reporting on the case--which, of course, has appeared NOWHERE else in the U.S. media---Doug provides a passionate introduction to Pasolini's life and work, argues trenchantly for his lasting relevance, and demolishes the idiotic conventional notion that Pasolini was somehow a death-obssessive who sought his own murder.
