But yes, I will attest to the fact his death was overly popularized in the media especially with the fine, yet shallow performances he gave in his lifetime.
I hate to be that guy that rags on the dead actor, but from what I saw of Heath Ledger (including Brokeback Mountain) he wasn't all that fantastic. I never saw either of the movies you mentioned so maybe I missed something! They were all more recent works of his too I think so perhaps he got better with age

I actually went on a trip to see Heath Ledger with my school once back when he was just an Australian actor on Neighbours or Home & Away or whichever show he was on. I wasn't all that impressed with him because I didn't watch the show he was on but he seemed nice enough then. I guess because we were school kids and not the media
