Sean Penn chan­nels a bizarre- o mix of Robert Smith of The Cure and alt rocker Ozzy Os­bourne in this strange but in­volv­ing tale about life and death. It fol­lows a re­tired and bored- off- his- rocker rocker ( Penn) who trav­els from Ire­land to Amer­ica when he learns of his fa­ther’s im­mi­nent death. Ar­riv­ing too late he takes up his fa­ther’s plight to find the Nazi war crim­i­nal that per­se­cuted him dur­ing World War II. Like Penn’s lead char­ac­ter, this dram­edy is a strange beast but it’s not with­out its odd­ball charms ei­ther.

Ex­tras: ★★★ Half an hour of cast/ crew in­ter­views.
