Critic Reviews for I Am Trying to Break Your Heart
Is there enough material to merit a documentary on the making of Wilco's last album?
If you aren't already a fan of Wilco, a critical darling led by the talented and wily songwriter Jeff Tweedy, the film does little to enlighten or recruit.
Woven together handsomely, recalling sixties' rockumentary milestones from Lonely Boy to Don't Look Back.
The film doesn't show enough of the creative process or even of what was created for the non-fan to figure out what makes Wilco a big deal.
A cohesive demonstration of why Wilco, as a whole, is one of the most compelling musical entities working today.
Even if you don't know the band or the album's songs by heart, you will enjoy seeing how both evolve, and you will also learn a good deal about the state of the music business in the 21st Century.
Audience Reviews for I Am Trying to Break Your Heart
Not a fan of the band films but I really take my hat off to Wilco for their attempts to bring back Woody Guthrie into the mainstream. As a result, I really got into the storyline here and enjoyed it.
Wilco are one of the greatest bands on Earth and this documentary film of the making of their masterpiece, "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot", is a fascinating glimpse at record company machination vs the creation of art.
An interesting look at the creative process and a must see for Wilco fans, who will get to see the drama behind one of the best albums of the past ten years.
