½ A Band Called Death Despite the name, Death may be the most family-friendly punk band ever. It was also one of the first, and definitely the first made up of African-Americans — three brothers who started it up in 1971. The film focuses on the two survivors, but their deceased sibling, the band’s driving force, is only there in spirit, and so Death remains a mystery. (96 min., unrated) (Peter Keough)
