Synopsis:
Dig! is the widely acclaimed, fascinating documentary that tracks the tumultuous rise and fall of two talented musicians and their bands; Courtney Taylor, leader of the Dandy Warhols and Anton Newcombe, leader of the Brian Jonestown Massacre. Shot over seven years and culled from over 1500 hours of footage, Dig! dissects their star-crossed friendship and bitter rivalry as they battle between selling records and selling out.

Tortured Genius - Dig! review by Kurtz

Spoiler Alert
20/01/2009

Despite the rush you get from seeing indie kings Dandy Warhols make the big time before your very eyes in this film, it’s Anton Newcombe, frontman of Brian Jonestown Massacre, who represents the artistic heart of the movie. It is put together from seven years spent with the bands, filming them in performance, in conversation, in conflict and occasionally in trouble with the law. Newcombe produces heady sixties-inspired music and a mesmerising stage presence, but his talent has to battle against his self-destructive nature, be it in the form of drug abuse or his penchant for an on-stage punch-up (both unflinchingly shown here.) It’s immensely watchable and an awesome labour of love by director Timoner.
