    Ok, I was reading about this documentary, and it's definitely a "must see!"

    DIG! is the feature-length documentary shot over seven years about musicians Anton Newcombe, leader of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Courtney Taylor, head of The Dandy Warhols - star-crossed friends and bitter rivals. From the moment they met, The Dandy Warhols and The Brian Jonestown Massacre quickly bonded over a desire to not conform to the tastes of the recording industry. Yet the bands' choices over how to express their creativity and originality in a profit-driven industry eventually put them at irreconcilable odds

    Culled from 1,500 hours of footage and narrated by Courtney Taylor, DIG! follows the underground giant Anton Newcombe, unearthing him to be an important yet largely unnoticed artist of our time.

    DIG! is about both musicians' love and obsession, gigs and recordings, arrests and death threats, uppers and downers - their choices between art and industry, which unfold with the passage of time.

    DIG! will debut as a collectible 2-DVD set . The first DVD includes the film and features a special interactive viewing experience allowing the viewer to watch deleted scenes in the context of the film. Also included on the first disc are commentary tracks with both bands and the filmmakers. The second bonus DVD contains over 2 hours of additional unseen material including deleted scenes, "where are they now?" updates, performance videos, Dandy Warhols videos, footage from MTV's Subterranean, and much more! In their highly informative and often comedic commentary tracks, each band reunites to view DIG! together for the first time … reliving their exploits, melees, drug abuse, and conflicts, even sometimes finding resolution...

    Anyway, I've never seen a documentary like this one before, and with good bands!!!. It just came out this week, on last Tuesday (april 12th) ...

    Have any of you seen it before? I also saw it was the winner of grand jury prize of Sundance film festival, last year.....
