Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 01/09/2012
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."
Sight and Sound - 04/01/2012
"As ever, Sorrentino fills the frame with panache, making striking compositions from the terraced streets....There are pleasures indeed..."
Total Film - 05/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] charming, stylish and witty journey through America and into history..."
Uncut - 05/01/2012
"David Byrne cameos as himself in a very funny scene....Byrne also collaborated with Will Oldham on the soundtrack."
Chicago Sun-Times - 11/14/2012
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."

Product Description:

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.
