I consider George Clooney‘s directing work to be 4-for-4. Confessions of a Dangerous Mind is a brilliant debut, Good Night, and Good Luck. is a perfectly timed critique of the Bush Administration, Leatherheads is a ton of fun, and The Ides of March, while it has some issues, is still an assured piece of filmmaking. His latest, The Monuments Men, has a terrific premise—a true story about a group of soldiers trying to rescue art from the Nazis—and an outstanding cast. I have no reason to believe he won’t be 5-for-5.

And here’s the official synopsis for The Monuments Men:
Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men is an action drama focusing on seven over-the-hill, out-of-shape museum directors, artists, architects, curators, and art historians who went to the front lines of WWII to rescue the world’s artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their rightful owners. With the art hidden behind enemy lines, how could these guys hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements. From director George Clooney, the film stars George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville, and Cate Blanchett. The screenplay is by George Clooney & Grant Heslov, based on the book by Robert M. Edsel with Bret Witter. Produced by Grant Heslov and George Clooney.
