This must be the place
Confusing, silly, and at times impressive movie about a former pop star (Penn) who laments the death of two fans. He moves from Dublin to America to track down a former Nazi who imprisoned his father. Lots of pointless scenes, new characters appearing, confused story, and lots of variations of the Talking Heads' song. Every second or third scene has a pointless crane shot. Also, that awkward 'goths at table' scene was done already in the woeful Irish movie Speed dating.
Rather sad article in today's Irish Independent newspaper about Ireland's most overrated female film director. She's been abroad...
