Matt Richards's rating of the film This Must Be the Place

Incredibly refreshing film-making with this wonderfully weird and human road trip. Sean Penn proves he is absolutely fearless as a damaged man seeking to reconcile his past with his future and the cameo by Harry Dean Stanton in the desert dinner is a beautiful hat-tip to Paris Texas. The cinematography is outstanding as is the score. Lyrical, inventive and surprisingly profound. 4 stars
