About the Movie
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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It paints an affecting, impressionistic portrait of the actor's singular vision and devotion to his work.
Fresh: "I Am Heath Ledger" is a catchy and seductive portrait of an extraordinary artist, but it leaves you wanting more, because you know it's not close to being all of Heath Ledger.
Fresh: I Am Heath Ledger offers intimacy but little sense of discovery.
Fresh: 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.
that chess movie...
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.
