A good movie

Since I have always been a huge fan of Sean Penn, I was really eager to check this flick. Well, to be honest, as usual with Paolo Sorrentino, it was a rather tricky movie. Basically, the whole concept was about an old retired popstar who goes back to the USA to chase some Nazi and that was obviously some seriously far-out material. Sure, even though it didn't completely wander into major mindf*ck ... read more

Description: Cheyenne, a wealthy former rock star (Penn), now bored and jaded in his retirement embarks on a quest to find his father's persecutor, an ex-Nazi war criminal now hiding out in the U.S. Learning his father is close to death, he travels to New York in the hope of being reconciled with him during his final hours, only to arrive too late. Having been estranged for over 30 years, it is only now in death that he learns the true extent of his father's humiliation in Auschwitz at the hands of former SS Officer Aloise Muller - an event he is determined to avenge. So begins a life-altering journey across the heartland of America to track ... (more)

A good movie

“Since I have always been a huge fan of Sean Penn, I was really eager to check this flick. Well, to be honest, as usual with Paolo Sorrentino, it was a rather tricky movie. Basically, the whole concept was about an old retired popstar who goes back to the USA to chase some Nazi and that was obviously some seriously far-out material. Sure, even though it didn't completely wander into major mindf*ck territory like a David Lynch movie, it still came close though. Maybe mindf*ck might not be the right word, maybe the whole thing just felt too random for me. Anyway, if Sorrentino's movies are often difficult to grasp, at least to me, there are still great to look at, there is always something really artistic about them  and I just love the way he sets up and shoots his scenes.

My Movie Diary 2017 (217 movies items)

" 24 May. Sean Penn plays a retired, aged rockstar who searches America for the Nazi war criminal who had abused his father, for a little bit of revenge. Its not serious as it sounds, the movie is rather a melodramatic reflection of life with a crazy character creation by Penn. Movie features great music by David Byrne. "

"First viewing - June 11th Recommended by moviewatcher122 Sean Penn wandering around looking like Robert Smith kinda messes with my head, but he does his best to disappear into the character here. I can't say it entirely works, but he definitely brings some unusual quirks to the role to make it different & memorable. The story is pretty surreal, with occasional bursts of reality...which makes it uneven at times, honestly. And while I didn't care for the music at least it's all in the same style "
