The Monuments Men [Video]

Kind of taking a diversion from advent reflections and popping this post in as a “heads-up”.

I am interested in the position of theology as a critique of ideology. Theology maintains that ideology serves rather than is served by humanity. I.e.: ideology makes a terrible master and theology keeps it in it’s place – or is supposed to when not being surrendered to ideology. It is not a perfect fit, but this forthcoming movie seems to feed into that area of interest.

From the trailer, the film version of the {Monuments Men} story looks like a good mix of action, comedy, and history. I presume that Bill Murray and John Goodman add some depth and comedic experience. Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Notting Hill) and Cate Blanchet (LOTR, Elizabeth,The Aviator) bring in a classy sense of British/Australian sophistication. Clooney and Damon no doubt bring the action. Making this film, by all appearances, something to look out for and forward to.

The film is set for release in February 2014.

For me, the stand out line from the trailer was:

“If you destroy their history, you destroy their achievements”
