I Am Heath Ledger is a feature length documentary celebrating the life of Heath Ledger: actor, artist and icon. The documentary provides an intimate look at Heath Ledger through the lens of his own camera as he films and often performs in his own personal journey - extravagant in gesture and in action. It was his creative energy and unshakable willingness to take risks that instilled such an extraordinarily deep love and affection in the people that entered his life. Heath’s artistic nature and expression set him apart from the Hollywood mainstream, vaulted him to stardom and endeared him to the world.

  • Before The Dark Knight and Parnassus...

    By drummer3
    Before The Dark Knight, Imaginarium of Parnassus, and Brokeback Mountain, he made even terrible films engaging and very watchable. Brokeback Mountain was a nuanced, more subtle incredible performance. A sort of precursor to what he would show the world in 2008's The Dark Knight. It's a shame we didn't get to see that fully blossomed Ledger more, but am grateful for what little filmography he left behind.
  • that chess movie...

    By bill.verus
    This doc talks about a chess related movie that Heath Ledger wanted to direct where the protagnoist was dealing with pill addictions and it's mentioned that Heath was struggling with those same inner demons -- but, this documentary claims hat he was only taking sleeping pills, and that that, and a bout of penumonia, did him in. Whatever took Heath away from us... he left way too early. He was a genius, a free spirit and a genuinely good and real person. Whereever you are Heath, I hope you're at peace.
