Great documentary, but only if you want a purely positive take on Heath Ledger
Verified purchase
The documentary was beautiful and I learned a lot about Heath Ledger as a person and artist. My critique is that no one is this perfect and beautiful. You don't die of a drug overdose at age 28 if everything is going perfectly in your life. I would have preferred a more balanced picture, more honesty, or at the very least a disclaimer from the director about having chosen only to portray the positive aspects of Heath and his life. Even his separation from Michelle Williams after having had Matilda was glossed over. It just doesn't feel like an honest portrayal to me, as beautifully done as it was.

After watching this film, which is really a love fest for Heath Ledger created by friends and family, I went on to watch all of Heaths films and interviews. I was inspired by his confidence to so boldly go out and create his career at such a young age. This film gives a real feel for the actors creativity and passion for music, art, film, people and life itself. His father, mother and sisters are candid and generous sharing stories about Heath and personal films that he made which are charming and sweet. Friends and colleges share stories about the actors life in film and his personal quirks and talents especially as a friend. Definately worth watch especially if you are a Heath Ledger fan!

Great insight into who Heath Ledger really was & could have been.
Verified purchase
Great documentary! It showed the humility in who he was & what he struggled with in his life. I wonder if he did not have a choice whether or not to be who he was- a star. That he shined bright & couldnt continue to keep shining. It made me sad to see this world lose a light like Heath Ledger- his struggle to find balance, purpose & to continually help others in the process was evident. Beautiful film.
