Pasolini Murder Case Reopened

Brian Cook

We wanted to make sure you didn't miss the announcement of our new Sustainer program. Once you've finished reading, take a moment to check out the new program, as well as all the benefits of becoming a Sustainer.

Direland has the scoop on the re-opened investigation into the murder of filmmaker, poet, novelist and political commentator and thinker, Pier Paolo Pasolini. 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.
