A deft and weirdly affecting portrait of how a drug-addicted man-child knocking on death's door manages an astonishing resurgence.
In its latter stages, the doc becomes not only a bromance, but also a romance, and maybe even a redemption story.
It's horrifying, and you can't look away.
Unexpectedly flouting its doomy title, "Last Days Here" invests the standard, washed-up rock-star tale with surprising sweetness.
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.
The filmmakers mine as much as they can from supportive parents and ex-bandmates, but notably, you won't leave humming a single riff.
...well-made and interesting music documentary about an important and influential band, it is even more impressive as a first hand account of the ravages of drug addiction.
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.
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...
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.
The bottled chaos that once was Bobby Liebling and the band Pentagram did not age well.
Despite the miracle of the concluding uplift, the message is overwhelmingly that drugs will drown out the power of sex and rock 'n' roll.
Last Days here is a great music documentary Singer Bobby Liebling and his band Pentagram, one of the pioneers of Doom Metal, and a very talented band that never got a contract. Liebling began using drugs and faded into obscurity even before he hit it big. The film takes a look at how one fan tries to help Bobby kick his drug habit and record a new record, which may be his comeback record in doing what he was supposed to do. This is a great music documentary very similar to Anvil! The Story of Anvil. This is a must watch for metalheads and anyone that enjoys this type of music. The film takes an unflinching look at the struggles of Liebling and how he tries to get his life together. In terms of a documentary, this is a well crafted movie that is sad, disturbing and uplifting at times. As a diehard metal fan, I really enjoyed the film despite the fact that it was hard to watch at times. The high point of the documentary was seeing the guys from Down, Phil Anselmo and Jimmy Bower meeting Bobby and Anselmo who owns Housecore Records and encouraged Bobby to keep making music. This ranks among the best music documentaries that I have seen and the film does have a similar ending to the Anvil documentary. Pentagram are a brilliant band, and they deserve plenty of exposure. In the end, the film is about a musician getting a second chance and when you see Bobby Liebling on that stage, he really is in his environment. His band shaped a metal subgenre, and has influenced many bands. If you're into the music, give it a shot.
Fascinating and tragic doc on the strung out singer of Pentagram. If you're a fan of rock docs like 'Lemmy' and 'Dig', you shouldn't miss this one.
A story of addiction and redemption that is unlike anything you have ever seen! Bobby Liebling and his band Pentagram, should have been America's answer to Black Sabbath. But, a series of missed opportunities and a horrifyingly bad drug habit. Kept this very talented musician and his music from the limelight. This gripping documentary focuses on Liebling and the few people in his life, that have not given up hope. That he will kick his habit, face his demons, and make a triumphant return to the stage. This shouldn't be missed!
"Last Days Here" is a fairly engaging documentary about the supremely wacky leader of Pentagram, the talented heavy metal band that never got a record contract. Everyone in the metal scene, myself included, has always wondered why a band as good as Pentagram never "made it." After seeing this film, we see why.
Bobby Liebling, the founder and leader of the band, is a complete wacko and a crack and heroin addict. What a shock that they blew every opportunity they ever had. Drugs have a way of doing that.
