Kurt Loder Reviews The Monuments Men


Twentieth Century Fox

The story of the real-life Monuments Men is a good one: how a group of academic art experts was deployed toward the end of World War II to save the treasures of European culture from relentless bombing and thieving Nazis. This adventure would make a good read – and in fact already has, in a 2009 book by Robert M. Edsel. It doesn't make much of a movie, though, says Kurt Loder.
