What am I doing?

Hey everybody, sorry if there’s been a little delay in getting out a new post recently, but I swear, a legitimate one is coming.  Next up for The Best Picture Project is 1966’s A Man For All Seasons, and I hope to have that out in the next few days it’s out now

In the meantime, keep checking back here for a new entry in The Best Picture Project.
