There may be no way to prepare you for the twin oddities that are “This Must Be the Place” and Sean Penn’s performance in it. On the surface, the film’s another one of those arty existential road trips about burned-out rock stars confronting their empty lives. See Sofia Coppola’s “Somewhere” and the recent “For Ellen” (although you don’t really have to). What raises “Place” above this mini-pack is the weary yet wise humor that floats through its ghostly journey from Dublin to the high deserts of America. This isn’t a great movie, but it is a special one.
