Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 10/08/2004
"[I]t invites those of us who aren't alt-rock obsessives into the hive, yet it never feels like a dilettante's tour....[The director] gets right up into the pores of the post-grunge demimonde."
New York Times - 10/01/2004
"[The film] gives a cinema verite spin to the endlessly fascinating pop-music soap opera formula of VH1's 'Behind the Music.'"
Los Angeles Times - 10/01/2004
"DIG! is really about all the sad and funny things that happen at the intersection between art and commerce."
Chicago Sun-Times - 04/08/2005
"[A] fascinating, engaging rock documentary..."
Rolling Stone - 05/05/2005
"[An] unflinching look at the rock world..."
Uncut - 07/01/2005
"It contains enough brawls, drug busts an over-inflated egos to render SPINAL TAPE obsolete."
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2005
"[A] gripping tragi-comedy and acerbic commentary on postmodern pop fame..."
Mojo - 01/01/2006
"Seven years in the making, Ondi Timoner's ruthlessly cutthroat, sad and comic documentary makes essential viewing."
Uncut - 01/01/2006
Ranked #8 in Uncut's Best Films Of 2005 -- "All the conventions of rock'n'roll excess are summarily invoked."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/30/2005
Ranked #2 in Entertainment Weekly's Top Ten DVDs Of The Year -- "[A] fascinating look at the struggling band's love-hate relationship with the more commercially successful Dandy Warhols."

Product Description:

Ondi Timoner's electrifying documentary tells a cautionary tale about the dangers and trappings of the rock & roll lifestyle. Shot over a seven-year span beginning in the mid-1990s, DIG! follows two bands, the Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Dandy Warhols, as they befriend each other, have a falling out, and find their careers heading in severely opposite directions. Mastermind behind the '60s-influenced Brian Jonestown Massacre, the talented and prolific, yet deeply damaged Anton Newcombe appeared to be headed for superstardom. In 1995 he formed a close bond with Courtney Taylor, leader of power-pop band the Dandy Warhols, and the two began to conceive of a musical revolution. Unfortunately, Newcombe's mental fragility and egotistical behavior continually sabotaged his chances of ever scoring a record deal with a major label. Meanwhile, Taylor and his bandmates signed with Capitol Records, and, after initially lackluster album sales, the Dandy Warhols began to explode overseas. Challenged by their success, Newcombe retreated further into his shell and the relationship dissolved, bringing a painful end to a once-hopeful era. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival, DIG! is mandatory viewing for anyone who is interested in the music industry. Timoner's fascinating film addresses several poignant issues, such as the dangerously thin line between success and anonymity, as well as stability versus insanity.
