Movie Review : Dig!


by Moss

OK, I'm a little reluctant to review a movie that has been out for a time, but I couldn't resist with the Movie, "DIG!" This is a must see movie for anyone who has ever been in a band, likes music or listens to music. The movie is about a wavering relationship between two like bands (Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Dandy Warhols). I don't want to give too much away, BUT, it is essentially a story of the lead songwriter of BJM, who basically crashes, reaches HUGE heights, burns the potential record deals and rebounds slightly. On the other hand is an aspiring collective of artists, musicians, painters and random kindred spirits who have built kind of a "knitting factory" of the Pacific Northwest. You MUST SEE DIG!
