Mark Harris, the author of "Pictures at a Revolution: Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood," appears on Elvis Mitchell's radio program "The Treatment."  Also, you can read an excerpt of Harris's book in Entertainment Weekly.  The books traces the evolution of the five films that were nominated for Best Picture in 1967:  "Bonnie and Clyde," "The Graduate," "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner," "In the Heat of the Night" and "Dr. Doolitte."  I'm about halfway through it, and it's certainly one of the best books on film I've read in many years.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
