I Am Heath Ledger feels like a glancing take on the actor. It takes us through his professional life, and some of his personal one, but it never provides a full picture of him.
What it does offer, however, is a touching celebration of his life — and it largely does so by using a collection of home videos Ledger recorded throughout his career.
The doc is less interested in analyzing Ledger's acting technique than in impressing viewers with his overall creative drive.
