    • Synopsis
    • Seven years in the making, Ondi Timoner’s DIG! tracks the tumultuous rise of two talented musicians, Anton Newcombe, leader of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Courtney Taylor, leader of the Dandy Warhols, and dissects their star-crossed friendship and bitter rivalry. Both are hellbent on staging a self-proclaimed revolution of the music industry. How each handles his stab at “success” is where the relationship frays and burns. Fresh, stylish, raucous, and raw, DIG! is a feat in rough-and-tumble filmmaking, but the conflicts it examines are as old as Mozart. Where does genius fit into a commodified world? Can it thrive and get its due, or does it need to self-destruct to preserve its integrity?
