Critic Reviews for This Must Be The Place
Penn has created a colorful tour guide, but in "This Must Be the Place," there's no there there.
Writer-director Paolo Sorrentino handles the story with surprising thoughtfulness.
The cast ... is outstanding, dragging the offbeat story through the occasional look-at-me distractions.
Although "This Must Be the Place" holds our attention, it's a little difficult to say where it's headed.
If you give Penn (and the movie) a chance, the character works, movingly and somewhat miraculously.
Audience Reviews for This Must Be The Place
A messy movie that throws many narrative elements together without any cohesion, drifting from odd character study to hunt-the-Nazi road-movie, and it is so rambling and disjointed in its structure that it feels pointless, with Sean Penn in an extremely annoying performance.
Inert and disappointing
A retired Goth pop star tracks down a Nazi who oppressed his deceased father. The script is a bit wonky, but Sean Penn has some great moments in a unique against-type role as the effeminate, tormented ex-rocker.
