'I AM HEATH LEDGER': Three Stars (Out of Five)

A documentary remembering the life, and career, of actor Heath Ledger; through interviews with his family and friends. It was directed by Adrian Buitenhuis and Derik Murray, while Hart Snider wrote the screenplay. Interviews include Naomi Watts, Ang Lee, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Emile Hirsch, Catherine Hardwicke, Ben Harper and many others. Considering the subject matter, I was hoping for a lot more. Still the movie isn't a complete waste of time.

The film chronicles the acting career of Heath Ledger, and his life during that time, through interviews with his friends and family. Most of his friends interviewed are other people in the film (or music) industry, that he worked with. There's also video that Heath filmed of himself, with his own personal camera. The movie centers on his life from the time he first got into the movie business, until his death.

The stories that Heath's friends and family tell about him are interesting, and you can definitely tell he was greatly loved, but I don't think this movie really gives you a strong idea of what Heath was really like. It's all told from other people's perspectives, and the video he filmed of himself is not very insightful at all. I wish there was more video of Heath doing some of the things described by his friends, that actually gives the viewer more of an idea of who he actually was. I also wish some more intimate people in his life (like Michelle Williams, their daughter, or Jake Gyllenhaal) would have participated in this documentary as well. The film is at least never boring though.
