DIG!

Rock 'n' roll pic "DIG!," which chronicles the simultaneous blossoming of the Dandy Warhols and the drug-induced destruction of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, is so fully realized that the add-ons merely reinforce the conceit at the heart of Ondi Timoner's film.

When an entire docu fully encapsulates one individual’s personal and professional descent and another’s ascent, one has to wonder what part of the picture needs embellishment or a greater explanation. Rock ‘n’ roll pic “DIG!,” which chronicles the simultaneous blossoming of the Dandy Warhols and the drug-induced destruction of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, is so fully realized that the add-ons merely reinforce the conceit at the heart of Ondi Timoner’s film.

A “where are they now” segment drives home the central point of “DIG!”: Success has costs and rewards, and the members of Dandy Warhols, signed to Capitol and doing impressive business overseas, enjoy owning homes, having families, their own workspace in Portland, Ore., and a calm, peace of mind. Brian Jonestown Massacre leader Anton Newcombe continues to teeter on homelessness and delirium as he struggles to keep a band together if not just himself. His former bandmates, bonus features show, are in various stages of re-entry to the real world, working day jobs at bars and record stores while still performing or writing.

“DIG!” documents the decline of Newcombe’s friendship with Dandy Warhol singer-songwriter Courtney Taylor; bonus material reaffirms Taylor’s undying admiration of Newcombe’s talent. Bonus disc reinforces the moves Timoner made in assembling her doc.

Bonus material, which lasts more than two hours, includes Dandy Warhols videos, live perfs by BJM that reinforce the greatness that the band’s supporters saw in them, plus interviews with Timoner and coverage of “DIG!” at the Sundance fest.
