Wilco

One of the most highly touted albums of the year almost didn't make it to music stores. As the band Wilco was struggling to stay together, their breakthrough fourth album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, was rejected by their record label for not being commercial enough. The film 'I Am Trying To Break Your Heart' documents this rough period in the band's life, and Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan thinks that the story, as well as the filmmaking, are a perfect complement to the band's music.
