Like most gay men we know, our love of Heath Ledger reached new depths after Brokeback Mountain.
Didn’t do much for our hatred of camping, but almost.
Tomorrow, a new Spike TV documentary titled I Am Heath Ledger, delves into his decision to take that iconic role and how it changed the course of the types of complex LGBT characters that would be portrayed from then on.
The in-depth film covers his thirst for fame and his disdain for it, too. But most of all, it showcases the immense beauty of an artist we lost way too soon.
Because tragedy has a way of providing a whole new take on a person.
