  • I Am Heath Ledger transcends box-checking filmography and gushing tributes, looking past Ledger The Movie Star to focus on the young man who dedicated his life to pursuing -- and helping others pursue -- a wide variety of creative endeavors.

  • The video Ledger captured of himself, which is liberally woven into the film, makes this an intense portrait that actually merits its title -- up close and personal in ways that such biographies seldom are.

  • The sheer number of people reminiscing in such sincere, unfeigned, heartfelt ways makes the film an uncommonly tender portrait of a celebrity, infused with a sense of humanity.

    Well, if you grew up in the noughties (like myself) you knew his name and you knew the various roles he played in various films. Heath Ledger is nothing short of being a modern Australian legend who lived a wonderfully fulfilling and colourful life, but sadly left this world all too soon. This documentary sheds light on the late actor's life produced and interviewed by some of his most closest friends and family members. It even include various pieces of stock footage that Ledger himself filmed throughout his life, something I didn't know about his underlining passion for his own brand of video/film making efforts. While it's been 9 years since the late actor's death this film goes to show his legacy still endures as his undying passion for being alive. Overall this documentary is the definitive portrait of Ledger which both old and new generations can learn from, it was an insightful feel good facts trip into the life and times of Ledger as well as an endearing one to really get some intimacy on parts of his life the world already didn't know.
