Film No. 36 (2017) I am Heath Ledger. May 21st.

Film No. 36 (2017) May 21st.  11.00 PM LUNA PALACE, Leederville.

"He was the most alive human being. If it wasn't on the edge then he wasn't interested"(Friend and mentor musician Ben Harper describes Ledger).

The prodigious talent that was Heath Ledger (1979 - 2008) is on display for all to see in this insightful documentary. Ledger was always headed for greatness in an amazingly seamless way, accumulating lovers and friends along the way because of his wonderfully warm nature. Ledger's mates Naomi Watts, Ben Mendelsohn, Emile Hirsch and Ang Lee give great legitimacy to his back story. I walked away with a better understanding as to why, sadly, Ledger died by accident, leaving us and taking his talent with him; talents that were prodigious. 9GUMS.

  1. High praise indeed.

    And good to see Ledger's mates.

    "An amazingly seamless way" - and yet we saw so many of the seams.
