Trivia

Adrian Buitenhuis and Derik Murray filming now "I am Paul Walker" after "I am Heath Ledger". Interesting to see the connection between his docs and the short film "Updating Death" by Carsten Aschmann. Heath Ledger and Paul Walker acting in this one. The third one in this circle is Philip Seymour Hoffman. Maybe Adrian Buitenhuis and Derik Murray come up next years with "I am Philip Seymour Hoffman. See more »

Watch for anyone curious to learn more about Ledger's life as an actor
14 October 2019 | by eminklSee all my reviews

A refreshing look and celebration of the life of a wonderful actor rather than a cynical detective story of his untimely death. It's not a particularly deep documentary, and the lack of input from someone like Michelle Williams or Ledger's daughter is understandable but ultimately disappointing, but it sheds what may be a new light on a young man we were truly gifted to share 28 years with. The insight into his creative process and his pure love for what he did is more than enough to make it a worthwhile watch for anyone curious to learn more about Ledger's life as an actor.
