    New York Post

    Riddled with sores, his lips locked on a crack pipe, the "sub-basement"-dwelling subject of this cult-rock doc initially seems plucked from an episode of "Intervention," or maybe "Hoarders." show more

    Bill Weber Slant Magazine

    Gambling on the unlikely redemption of a doom metal fuck-up, this potential rock-doc tragedy reveals a bromance of idol and idolator. show more

    Joshua Rothkopf Time Out New York

    A middling entry in the growing genre of tragic, never-quite-made-it rocker docs, this doesn't have a bona fide genius at its core (The Devil and Daniel Johnston), nor a compelling clash of Spinal Tap–ready egos (Anvil! The Story of Anvil). show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    As depressing as it may sound on paper, directors Argott and Fenton have crafted a deeply disturbing but equally moving documentary. show more

    Gary Goldstein Los Angeles Times

    It's the offbeat love story at the heart of Liebling's resurrection that provides the film's most powerful - and touching - surprise. show more

    Melissa Anderson Village Voice

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

    Jeannette Catsoulis The New York Times

    Nevertheless the fierce loyalty of Mr. Liebling's nearest and dearest is extremely touching, and Last Days Here - despite its stinginess with back story and early performance footage - works hard to reveal the man beneath the four-decade heroin habit. show more

    Variety

    A surprise back-from-the-brink redemption proves reliably engaging in rock-doc Last Days Here, tracking three years in the life of cult musician Bobby Liebling, whose band Pentagram never capitalized on its early promise. show more

    Sam Adams The A.V. Club

    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. show more
