Why We Fight (The Sarasota Version)

Why We Fight (The Sarasota Version)


SARASOTA — Ninety minutes after the evil developer’s daughter disappeared and her lover and best friend began playing footsie all over Italy, the man in the baseball cap had enough.

“Boring,” he said, willing to share his opinion of Monday morning’s featured attraction… but not his name.

“Normally I like Antonini’s films,” the man said, meaning Michelangelo Antonioni, whose 1960 classic L’Avventura had another hour to go inside the (cinema).

“This must be one of his early ones,” the man said, hoisting a shopping bag and heading back to Venice. “I mean, there’s nothing much going on.”
