Description

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.

Synopsis
If you're obsessive fan of doom metal, there's a good chance you've heard of Pentagram, a band whose fusion of hard rock, psychedelia and Black Sabbath-style guitar thunder has earned them a passionate cult following, particularly for their hard-to-find 1970s recordings, though they've never approached anything close to mainstream popularity. After years of only sporadic activity, Bobby Liebling, Pentagram's lead singer, principal songwriter and sole constant member through dozens of lineup changes, was approached by Sean "Pellet" Pelletier, a longtime fan who offered to become the group's manager and help put them back on track. That turned out to be a much bigger task than most folks would be willing to take on -- Liebling was living in his parents basement at the time, hooked on hard drugs and emotionally battered by years of depression and disappointment. Filmmakers Don Argott and Demian Fenton became witnesses as Pelletier struggled to help Liebling restart his career and his life, and LAST DAYS HERE is a documentary that examines the difficult friendship between the two men as well as the long road back to the stage for Liebling and Pentagram. LAST DAYS HERE received its word premiere at the 2011 South by Southwest Film Festival.

"[A] hugely engrossing, stranger-than-fiction documentary....A deft and weirdly affecting portrait of how a drug-addicted man-child knocking on death's door manages an astonishing resurgence."
Gary Goldstein (23 Mar 2012, )
