Juan Barquin's rating of the film This Must Be the Place

I really wish this movie hadn’t been so damn aimless. Sean Penn does such a great job as Cheyenne, although it did get a little over-the-top once or twice. It’s gorgeously shot, sports good performances, and balances amusing and dramatic decently, but it really needed some major rewriting to get that script in order because it was just all over the place. The Talking Heads performance was wonderful.
