The movie is an intimate celebration of the actor, artist, and icon, providing an intimate look at Heath Ledger through the lens of his own camera as he films and often performs in his own personal journey.
What sets I Am Heath Ledger apart from these moving amateur compilations, apart from the filmmakers' considerable experience in the area, is the extraordinary wealth of "home movie" footage shot by Ledger himself.
Devoid of gossip and any hint of salaciousness, I Am Heath Ledger is a cinematic portrait of Ledger the artist ... the trove of Ledger's own recordings gives us an intimacy that previous generations of film biographers could only dream of.
I Am Heath Ledger transcends box-checking filmography and gushing tributes, looking past Ledger The Movie Star to focus on the young man who dedicated his life to pursuing -- and helping others pursue -- a wide variety of creative endeavors.
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.
