I AM TRYING TO BREAK YOUR HEART (2003)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Apr 01, 2003; DVD Release Date: Apr 01, 2003; Movie Rated: Unrated; Genre: Documentary; Distributor: Cowboy Pictures

Sam Jones got spectacular access for his behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (he even has Jeff Tweedy spewing in the toilet), and fans will relish the intimate look at the album's sometimes painful birth. The film takes too long analyzing Wilco's unceremonious split with their label, which in retrospect proved but a minor career hiccup. Fortunately, this package makes up for it with an excellent second disc filled with unreleased outtake performances.
