Cause of Death: Prescription Drug Intoxication
This reaction was definitely post-mortem. When Ledger died, I had only seen The Patriot and barely remembered him. However, I was blown away by his performance in The Dark Knight. I also recently saw Brokeback Mountain. Talk about range. This guy could have had a really special career, and I am saddened that I’m going to miss out on it. And that he felt he needed all of those benzos to feel relief.

The wild thing is that he started out as this irritatingly replaceable beefcake dude in awful fare like A Knight’s Tale. He came so far, so fast, and was gone just as quickly.
I almost mentioned that movie in the review, but didn’t see the need to trample on the man’s grave.
