It's safe to say you've probably never met anyone quite like Anton Newcombe, the mercurial--to say the least--frontman for psychedelic rock cult act Brian Jonestown Massacre. Walking the tightrope between messianic rock star and mental illness patient, Newcombe's unpredictable and explosive personality make him perfect documentary fodder.

'Dig!' traces the friendship and dissolution between Newcombe's band and Portland group The Dandy Warhols and stands as not only one of the best rock documentaries, but an insightful look on the creative process and how to deal with success and failure.
