Poetic Quote of the Day: What is Florida?

[speaking with regard to Florida as a movie setting]

"Florida has appeared as a kind of bedraggled kingdom of chaos. The swamps, the threadbare woods, the saggin loose-hinged bungalows, the roadhouses with their grizzled and beer-bellied bikers, the long, droning freeways, cars tooling along to somewhere or other. . . . Florida is the place where life doesn't shape up."

- David Denby, Review of Monster, The New Yorker 1/26/04
