The great of '68
Raymond Benson -- official James Bond novelist, film historian, and a New York Times-validated best selling author -- is running a series of posts at the Britannica Blog on the "Top Films of '68." And I've been asked to join the film writers and scholars who are adding their two cents on those posts. Mind you, we're talking about some heavy-duty cognoscenti -- the lineup includes several Pulitzer Prize winners and at least one Nobelist. In other words, if this group ever met in real life, I'd be the one they'd send out to fetch coffee. So, Mr. Benson, tell me: You want sugar or Sweet and Low with that java?
