Ten Things I Hate About Heath Ledger Dying

1. Not sure if he finished filming Batman sequel.
2. Left behind infant daughter.
3. All of his roles will now go to ersatz-Heath James Franco.
4. Known for rejecting lucrative crap roles in favor of more challenging ones.
5. Kicked ass in Brokeback Mountain.
6. Was only part I liked about Monster’s Ball.
7. My favorite Dylan in I’m Not There. (‘I love women; everyone should have one.’)
8. Acting would have been even better in maturity.
9. Twenty-eight years old is not very many years old.
10. Major bro, period.

Rest in peace, mate.

That being said, the Alegory of the Dark knight might actually conceal something of the dangers in Art, rather than the pitfalls of Heroism.

  4. well said

  5. […] enlightening conversations I’ve ever had was with a friend around the time of the release of Brokeback Mountain (2005). This friend is intelligent in the traditional sense: well-educated, well-traveled, […]
