"This Must Be The Place" from Speaking in Tongues by the Talking Heads.

Over the weekend I watched This Must Be the Place starring Sean Penn as a retired rock musician. Cheyenne (Penn) arrives too late at his father's deathbed and decides to take up a revenge plot against the Nazi who tormented his father during WWII and who is now hiding somewhere in the US. The film is inconsistent in parts but overall I found the dark humor a nice contrast to the drama of the revenge plot. Special kudos to Frances Mcdormand's portrayal of Cheyenne's wife (I love her!) and David Byrne's wonderful cameo.

  1. Inconsistent is the word for it. I really wanted to like this film ... love McDormand and Penn.
