More About This Must Be the Place - Sean Penn
 
 
 
Overview

Fifty-year-old retired goth rocker Cheyenne (Sean Penn) travels from London to New York to visit his dying father, and then journeys across the United States on a mission to seek revenge against the elusive ex-Nazi war criminal who persecuted his dad in Auschwitz. Despondent after two of his young fans commit suicide, Cheyenne retreats to his Dublin mansion and begins living off of his royalties alongside his down-to-earth wife Jane (Frances McDormand). Later, he receives word that his father is dying in New York City. Although they haven't spoken in 30 years, he boards the first available flight to bid his dad farewell. Unfortunately, Cheyenne arrives too late. Upon reconnecting with his cousin Richard (Liron Levo), however, the morose musician learns that his father, a Holocaust survivor, had been tracking Auschwitz guard Aloise Lange (Heinz Lieven) around America for decades. Filled with ennui yet determined not to let Lange escape unpunished, Cheyenne vows to pick up the mission his father left uncompleted.

Reviews:
3 stars out of 5 -- "What lifts the film is the terrific score by David Byrne who appears as himself and has crafted some of his most memorable tunes including the rich title song that sets the tone for the film, title and all." - 01/09/2012 Box Office


"As ever, Sorrentino fills the frame with panache, making striking compositions from the terraced streets....There are pleasures indeed..." - 04/01/2012 Sight and Sound


4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] charming, stylish and witty journey through America and into history..." - 05/01/2012 Total Film


"David Byrne cameos as himself in a very funny scene....Byrne also collaborated with Will Oldham on the soundtrack." - 05/01/2012 Uncut


"The music, by David Byrne and Will Oldham, is exceptionally varied and characteristically rich." - 11/01/2012 Wall Street Journal


"[E]very character is strongly drawn and played with an unsettling tension..." - 11/01/2012 Los Angeles Times


"[A film] that expresses the kind of fascination with exotic American landscapes that you find in Wim Wenders’s PARIS, TEXAS, Wong Kar-wai’s MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS, and in BORAT." - 11/01/2012 New York Times


"[Penn] succeeds in slowly ferreting out the complicated, confused man underneath the affectations." -- Grade: B+ - 11/01/2012 A.V. Club


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "THIS MUST BE THE PLACE centers on another uncompromising character invention by Sean Penn....Few actors have played a wider variety of characters, and even fewer have done it without making it seem like a stunt." - 11/14/2012 Chicago Sun-Times
