There may be spoilers the rest of the review

 

Verdict: Fascinating Documentary

 

Story: I am Heath Ledger starts as we hear from friends and family about the drive from a very young age that Heath had, we learn how he would record his life and we see these previously unseen recordings of his own adventures, as he continued to learn his craft.

We learn how the fellow stars from Australia would come together to support each other through their time in Hollywood.

Seeing how many people both in personal and in the Hollywood world were touched by Heath is fascinating and showed us what a great man Heath was and how he should always be remembered.

 

Thoughts on I Am Heath Ledger

 

Final ThoughtsHeath Ledger is easily one of the biggest losses in modern Hollywood time, he potential was just coming through after The Dark Knight but he was taken from us too soon. Seeing how his life goals were achieved, how he went out with little to no experience to become a lead in a Hollywood. Seeing how he helped people, always wanted to learn and improve his craft is fascinating to see. This is a must watch for any of the fans of his, actors and Hollywood.

 

Overall: One for everyone to watch.

Favourite Film
John Wick: Chapter 2john-wick-2

A pure action sequel that lives up to the original and continues to build the universe the film takes place in, this role was built for Keanu and you can see how much he enjoys playing it.

Worst Film
By the Seaby-he-sea

This was boring, I don’t want to talk anymore about it.

Favourite Character
Charlie Crooker – The Italian Jobcaine

Charlie is the true wheeler and dealer criminal that is fun to watch getting himself into trouble and then out of them. He also has the most memorable quote of anyone on this list.

Worst Character
Roland – By the Seapitt

Roland is the alcoholic husband of the couple who just drinks, rants, drinks, rants you know this could go on a while.

Star Performance
Bruce Dern – Nebraskabruce

I knew Bruce had been nominated for the Oscar for this role and know I fully understand why, because he was fantastic in this role and you fully understand everything he was going through.
