Building on three critically acclaimed records and a reputation for phenomenal live shows, the band seemed poised to cement its reputation as one of the great American rock groups. So how is it that one year later, with completed record in hand, the band found itself rejected by its corporate label and missing two of its original members? First-time filmmaker and award-winning photographer Sam Jones was on hand, chronicling this turbulent chapter in Wilco s history as it unfolded.
Throughout the film, Jones tempers the backstage dramas and unfathomable corporate shenanigans with inspired live performances, as frontman Jeff Tweedy and company perform songs from Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and previous Wilco albums. Shot in luminous black and white, I Am Trying to Break Your Heart is a riveting portrait of a band making the best music of its career.
Disc 1 I Am Trying to Break Your Heart (high definition digital transfer, 16 x 9 anamorphic presentation); Feature commentary from director Sam Jones and Wilco; Original theatrical trailer; English subtitles for the hearing impaired
Disc 2 - Over 70 minutes of extra footage, featuring 17 additional Wilco songs, alternate versions of songs from Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, live concert performances and new unreleased songs; I Am Trying To Make A Film making- of featurette; Deluxe 40- page booklet with filmmaker s diary, exclusive photos and liner notes from Rolling Stone s David Fricke
Sam Jones is a director and writer, known for I Am Trying to Break Your Heart (2002) and Off Camera with Sam Jones (2014).
I would highly recommend this movie to any music fan.
This is a film that documents Jeff Tweedy and his band Wilco making the album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot as well as the struggles between bandmates and their record label.
Sam's goal for his debut film - to be present during the making of a great album - is a treat for music fans.

Admittedly, I don't like WIlco, and I find Jeff Tweedy to be a boring overrated musician and songwriter. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Jbenny
