Washington Post
The unexpected drama captured puts I Am Trying to Break Your Heart in the good company, if not quite the league, of "Let It Be" and "Gimme Shelter." Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
It testifies to art's vitality and endurance, despite its marketers' -- and sometimes even its makers' -- efforts to the contrary. Full Review
Dave Kehr
The New York Times
A photographer for magazines like Vanity Fair and GQ, as well as a veteran director of commercials, Mr. Jones brings a trained eye to this, his first documentary. The low gray skies of Chicago prove once again to be a boon to photography, and the city has seldom looked better than it does here, in its chilly, minimalist beauty. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
This is compelling stuff, but Jones seems almost pathologically averse to upstaging the songs themselves. Full Review
James Sullivan
San Francisco Chronicle
Business intrudes on art. Full Review
