Editorial Reviews

Chronicling the triumphs and downfalls of cult rock legend Bobby Liebling, Last Days Here is a powerful documentary about an underground icon who finds himself at the crossroads of life and death. For over 36 years Bobby Liebling has been churning out genre-defining hard rock as the lead singer of the band Pentagram. But various acts of self-destruction, multiple band break-ups, and botched record deals have condemned his music to obscurity. Frozen for decades in his parents' basement, Bobby is finally discovered by the heavy metal underground, and with the help of Sean 'Pellet' Pelletier, his friend and manager, Bobby struggles to overcome his demons. Directors Dan Argott and Demian Fenton (The Art of the Steal) offer a candid look at this madly talented artist, whose unexpected journey made him a prodigious diamond in the music business rough.

Honestly, I haven't given the heavy metal band Pentagram much thought over the last several decades. Lead singer Bobby Liebling seemed ill-equipped to translate the cult appeal of the band into mainstream success due to personal demons and drugs, but still the legacy of their music endures. I wanted to see "Last Days Here" when I heard the reviewer for the Wall Street Journal brand it a heavy metal "Grey Gardens." If you're not familiar with this classic documentary, it details the eccentric relations of Jackie Kennedy who ended their days in squalor and solitude and yet remained a pair you wanted to root for. It is alternately hysterical, sad, disturbing, and oddly sweet. "Last Days Here" does capture a similar mix of emotions as it catches up with Liebling in his later days. The story may not be quite as unorthodox, though, because Liebling's journey is still defined by an on-going battle with drug addiction. But even at his worst and most detached, there's something about Bobby Liebling that is childlike and ingratiating.

Liebling, after flirting with the music industry for almost four decades, is poised for a comeback in "Last Days Here." As we meet him, he is residing in his parents' basement and living an oddly co-dependent lifestyle. Discovered by a big fan, Sean Pelletier, who seems to have dedicated his existence to the troubled soul--the two attempt to launch a resurgence of interest in the original Pentagram. It is not only fascinating to see Liebling as we do, but to see him through Pelletier's eyes gives an interesting alternate perspective. He's a good friend indeed! The documentary charts plenty of highs and lows, including a tempestuous new love interest and the pursuit to cut a new album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting his soul back... piece by piece... February 27, 2013
Format:DVD
"Last Days Here" shows the seemingly-hopeless life of a hardcore drug addict through the life of doom metal legend Bobby Liebling of Pentagram. Being a massive fan of Pentagram, I had heard about Bobby Liebling's troubles and I knew that the band had been through a lot of members, but this movie REALLY opened my eyes. It was heartbreaking to see him looking so gaunt, disheveled, and, frankly, like a homeless person who happened to be crashed in someone's basement. This was Bobby Liebling, the singer of one of my favorite doom metal bands!

God, Satan, Krishna, or whomever, bless "Pellet" for befriending Bobby and sticking with him through so much in order to help him get his soul back. When Pentagram actually finally takes the stage, it is like a revival!

The real story here is not about one of the greatest doom metal bands ever, drug addiction, or a band that failed to make it big. In the end, this is a story about a man who is in pain and desperately needs someone to love him. The loneliness he must have felt in the "sub-basement" for decades is unimaginable.

I cannot recommend this movie highly enough for anyone who loves Pentagram.

FIVE STARS!

4.0 out of 5 stars House lights go dark... June 10, 2013
Format:DVD
If you're going to understand the 2011 documentary "Last Days Here," having lived the 1970s will help. Arena concerts, traveling tours, platinum albums -- those of us who grew up in the decade witnessed a glorious time when house lights go dark and the band walked onto the stage. Is there a more electric moment? Cameron Crowe's terrific Almost Famous comes closest to recreating the era, a time when Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, KISS and Thin Lizzy tours were spectacular migratory festivals stopping in town. Rock was religion, arenas the church, and coolness was defined by what band's t-shirt you wore.

"Last Days Here" details Sean Pelletier, a passionate music collector who comes across a Pentagram First Daze Here LP at a dusty record store. Personally, I had never heard of the band until this documentary. They were a doom metal act formed in Virginia around 1974, sporting bell-bottoms, long hair and a sound inspired by early Black Sabbath. Pelletier thinks it's the greatest album he's ever heard, and I must admit the song "Forever My Queen" freakin' rocks. He becomes obsessed and tries to track down members, who would be in their 60s by now. Amazingly, he finds lead singer Bobby Liebling, a weathered misfit with all the charisma of a homeless bag lady. He's living in the basement of his parent's home near Philadelphia, a hopeless, unemployed drug addict.

The scenes of Liebling, crawling across the floor looking for crack cocaine, chain smoking and often-times babbling incoherently, are disturbing. He's a trapped relic, and his days are numbered.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets! May 25, 2013
Format:DVD
I never heard of Pentagram growing up. I read about this movie and it sounded right up my alley. My favorite rockumentary is the Anvil one. I thought this sounded kind of similar so I checked it out. All I can say is that I have a new favorite! It is hard to write a review of this without giving anything away. This is the most inspirational film I have ever seen. If you are feeling down on life watch this movie. It will give you a whole new perspective on life and what a gift it is. Hollywood cannot write a story this good. Spread the word about this movie if you see it. This is a must see. I rarely write reviews of movies but this one is as good as it gets.!
