Why is Penn off the radar for his performance in This Must Be the Place

by John H. Foote Why is Penn off the radar for his performance in This Must Be the Place, which opens in November?

The trailers have been circulating for more than a year now, and it is a Penn we have never seen before! Wearing a jet black fright wig, his face pasty white, his eyes lonely and sad and speaking in a voice that is best described as monotone and dead, he is the ultimate totally burned out rock star, bored with life because he has simply lived too much of it!! This is just the trailer, and yet one gets the impression Penn is doing work, again, that we have not experienced from him.

This is what I enjoy about Penn as an actor, he constantly takes the audience places they have never before been with him, creating characters that are diverse and original, never doing the same thing twice. Like all the great actors he thrives on challenge, and does not suffer fools. A complete professional, he shows up ready to work, with strong opinions as to how he will play the part, and the finest directors know it is wise to turn him loose and let him create.
