SundanceNOW’s DOC CLUB is in full swing this October with “Music Month,” a curated program of documentaries pertaining to music and musicians which includes Spike Lee’s “Passing Strange” and the previously mentioned “Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him?)” Also on the roster is another great film (and one of this writer’s top picks of 2012), Don Argott and Demian Fenton’s “Last Days Here.” The creative team from “The Art Of The Steal” take a look at the virtually unknown and deeply undersung 1970s heavy rock band Pentagram, detailing their history and the troubled life of frontman Bobby Liebling right as he prepares to do one last album.
