On "The Monuments Men"


From The Dispatch:
Clooney and Grant Heslov’s script may overstate this message occasionally, but it’s a solid, tightly directed film. I love its old fashioned sensibilities, its constant (and completely accurate) depiction of characters smoking, its refusal to turn into a dishonestly fast paced thriller. It feels like something from another time, and that’s what’s so refreshing about it. It’s a pleasure to watch these actors work together and create something so instantly beguiling. It may not dig very deep, but it’s an effortlessly entertaining homage to the Golden Age of Hollywood that packs a surprising emotional wallop.
