Ondi Timoner’s Grand Jury prizewinner for Documentary Film at the Sundance Film Festival offers a revealing look at the contemporary rock music scene by focusing on the complicated love/hate relationship between two West Coast bands. Courtney Taylor of Portland, Oregon’s The Dandy Warhols greatly admires Anton Newcombe, the rebellious creative force behind San Francisco’s The Brian Jonestown Massacre. However, professional respect is eventually compromised after the Oregon band snags a recording contract and is accused of selling out.
