Film review: 'This Must Be the Place'

lasvegasweekly.com
12 December 2012
  • Excerpt: A movie starring Sean Penn in heavy makeup and a fright wig, making him look like The Cure’s Robert Smith, can’t help but be perceived as a stunt. And the perception only intensifies when you learn that said movie’s plot finds Penn’s character, a retired rock star known only as Cheyenne, roaming the United States in search of the Nazi guard who tormented his late father.

  • Conclusion: Determinedly quirky and cool, arresting and ultimately too baffling to be satisfying, although Penn is priceless. Cultdom beckons.

  • Excerpt: This is a beguiling character study, thanks to the disarming performance of the lead actor. The central role is a captivating mix of unsophisticated naivety and world weariness played with sincerity. This movie, which is one man's search for self-discovery, could be plumbed meaning, and while many messages might be discovered it is better appreciated as adventurous film-making that delights with its originality.

  • Summary: This Must Be the Place gaat over de voormalige rockster Cheyenne, gespeeld door Sean Penn, die middels een roadtrip door Amerika op zoek gaat naar een nazi-beul en – belangrijker nog – naar zichzelf. Deze onvoorspelbare, niet-standaard karakterfilm bevat uitstekend acteerwerk, mooie cinematografie, een prima soundtrack en verveelt geen minuut. Al zal niet iedereen de sterk variërende toon, van luchtig en humoristisch tot zwaarmoedig en dramatisch, kunnen waarderen.

  • Excerpt: En roadmovie om en aldrende rockestjerne på jakt etter en nazioffiser? This must be the place er akkurat like rar som denne pitchen. Sean Penn gjør en festlig hovedrolle, åpenbart inspirert av utseende til Robert Smith fra The Cure, krysset med ganglaget til Ozzy Osbourne og stemmen til Truman Capote. Det er morsomt å se ham være fisk på land, men historien er veldig rar og har tilsynelatende ingen dypere lag. Dette er overfladisk snåleri som reddes av Sean Penn.
