Obsessed with two insignificant musical acts.

I had my fill with both band leaders stroking their own egos and calling themselves artists.

A messy home movie about the competition between two overindulged rock bands. Much angst. Little talent.

It basically boils down to: This is your band - this is your band%u2026 on drugs.

The only tension here is if Newcombe will follow in the footsteps of his band's namesake, Rolling Stones' multi-instrumentalist Brian Jones, and OD.

Ultimately undermined by the fact that the two rock bands Timoner chose to focus on -- the Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Dandy Warhols -- simply don't matter as much as she thinks they do.

There's nothing cautionary in DiG! that you couldn't learn by renting the 1986 Sex Pistols-related biopic Sid and Nancy -- or exploring the commercially still-born yet revered career of the Velvet Underground.

Director/producer Ondi Timoner captures some fantastically outrageous footage.

It's a classic music soap opera, but never told with a more raw scream for help at its center.

...an entertaining after-party's worth of posturing musicians and wild debauchery that is utterly forgettable the morning after.

Indie doc tracing indie rock bands boils down two bands, eight years, thousands of fans and infinite ambition into 105 minutes of standout filmmaking.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

It's a perceptive, surprisingly straightforward film, one that recognizes you don't need to jazz things up with 'edgy' graphics or camera tricks when there's already so much drama on-screen.

Sydney Morning Herald

Linked together by the deadpan, melancholy drawl of Taylor's narration, it's filled with parasites, charlatans and oddballs. Not to mention a succession of wonderful songs.

Here I am, no particular fan of either group, and I found the film immensely enjoyable, like watching an especially hilarious trainwreck as it happens.

Dig! is a mesmerizing portrayal of the madness called "rock star," and a gripping look into the souring of a friendship founded in ambition.

DIG! is also brave enough to show the real, ugly warts of the music business, whereas more established bands would probably prefer a polished, PR-approved vision.

While DiG! doesn't offer much new in its histrionical hair-tearing about the music industry, it does make for an interesting character study

Cinema em Cena

Utilizando imagens capturadas ao longo de sete anos, Timoner cria um autêntico (e fascinante) arco narrativo, estabelecendo brilhantemente a trajetória de seus anti-heróis.
