When I heard about George Clooney’s latest directorial vehicle, “The Monuments Men,” I wasn’t too interested.
First, ‘Monuments’ is plural, as opposed to singular, which sounds a bit odd to me.
Then, there are no space ships, giant robots or aliens, so it wasn’t exactly on my radar.
Till I saw the trailer. Clooney’s take on the subject matter – the Allied attempt to recover art work taken by the Nazis – feels very authentic, even amusing (in an anti-Sandler kind of way, which is to say clever, understated, and adult).
