The result is one of the most unforgiving ground-level documentaries about the music business ever made -- the six-string equivalent of "Hoop Dreams."
100
Remarkable rockumentary.

What makes the movie powerful is Timoner's decision to structure it via Taylor's perspective on his competitor, with no holds barred.

Entertainment Weekly
The fascination of Dig! is that it invites those of us who aren't alt-rock obsessives into the hive, yet it never feels like a dilettante's tour.

New York Daily News
A riveting rock documentary.

Chicago Tribune
Anton, because after watching your tantrums, abuse and addiction in DIG! I went straight to the record store to buy your music. And that's something.

Miami Herald
DiG! is raw, just as the band members themselves.

New York Post
A hip eye-opener.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Timoner offers a resonant, often painfully funny, drama about two good friends who become enemies against the backdrop of the pop-music business.

Premiere
DiG! never delves deep enough to act as a true cautionary tale. It's an amusingly drunken PBS-worthy human-interest doc, unless you're too old or not cool enough to have played in the embarrassing hipster zoo, in which case DiG! may be the closest you'll ever get to the uncaged animals.

The Hollywood Reporter
May not be for all tastes, but it's an up close and personal look at a true rock 'n' roll animal.
