Exhausting, amusing but ultimately rather sad documentary tracing the friendship and rivalry between two US bands—the Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Dandy Warhols. While exploring the old contradiction between desire for success and fear of selling-out, the film is more concerned with the ongoing mental breakdown of BJM’s Anton Newcombe, whose egotism—and heroin addiction—sees him treated as both a figure of fun and of tragedy.
