Vanity Fair's look at Heath Ledger

If you haven't gotten the chance to read it yet, Vanity Fair's article on Heath Ledger is online now. It's very long, and I haven't read it yet, partially because of its length, and partially because reading about Heath Ledger since his death has been daunting.

When Heath Ledger died a year and a half ago from an accidental mix of prescription drugs, he was deep into filming The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus with his friend and mentor, director Terry Gilliam. From Gilliam, the crew, and other insiders, the author gets an exclusive account of Ledger’s final months—a pressure cooker of arduous filmmaking, personal turmoil, and chronic insomnia—and of how the 28-year-old star’s last movie was rescued by a trio of friends: Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell.
