George Clooney’s The Monuments Men is now available on home release Blu Ray and DVD. Struggling to get out of the handsome straightjacket is an interesting story about the squad of art historian experts (actually some 300 in reality, scattered over various fronts) who set out during the waning days of WWII to recover stolen art treasures from the Nazis, or prevent damage to historically important buildings during the allied advance. The film is loosely based on the book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History by Robert M. Edsel.

Perhaps the greatest crime of this film however, is not just the gigantic scale thefts therein, but the absolute waste of a great cast, Bill Murray especially. Anyway, here’s an infographic on the facts behind the film, and the trailer.
