The bottled chaos that once was Bobby Liebling and the band Pentagram did not age well.

A living horror show, rocker Bobby Liebling's sad, appalling tale is told in a film that will have some niche appeal but little else.

The fact that Last Days Here cares more about Liebling's personal redemption than his professional triumph is ultimately a saving grace, a telling demonstration of the film's well-ordered priorities.

Harrowing and at times quite funny, Last Days Here is the latest and maybe the best in what seems to have become a trend - documentaries about obscure rock bands who somehow have maintained a small but devoted following...

Engaging and emotional and funny in surprising ways. And I have to be honest: when I like a rock doc that means it's something very special.

A deft and weirdly affecting portrait of how a drug-addicted man-child knocking on death's door manages an astonishing resurgence.

Unexpectedly flouting its doomy title, "Last Days Here" invests the standard, washed-up rock-star tale with surprising sweetness.

An affectionate look at a self-destructing maniac and his supporters that bluntly reveals Liebling's total abjection without mocking him.

The documentarians make a good case that anyone can be redeemed, even a zonked out, washed up heavy metal singer.

The filmmakers mine as much as they can from supportive parents and ex-bandmates, but notably, you won't leave humming a single riff.

In its latter stages, the doc becomes not only a bromance, but also a romance, and maybe even a redemption story.

Complemented by a terrific score from Stars of the Lid (between assorted Pentagram tracks), this is maximum r&r all the way, with heart to spare.
