Hoo boy. This one's for the fans and nobody else.

I vaguely liked Wilco but knew very little about them before I watched this; by the end I liked their music less and knew only a tiny bit more.

Fails the "talks to a woman who isn't related to any band members about music" test. Possibly is entirely white men in their 30s through 50s. Give no context to the band's music. I have no idea who these men are or where they came from. Leaves me asking "Why so glum, chum?" and doesn't attempt to answer it.

Other rockumentaries have made me a fan of the band (Rush) or at least respect them more (Twisted Sister). This left me irritated.

Want to know how a band is going to crash and burn? When the singer watches this documentary before every show.
