I just discovered that BBM was shown in Boston Monday at the Cooledge Theater, where some of us got together to see it in the screening room last year.

Because it just needs to happen, the Coolidge is showing "Brokeback Mountain" tonight at 7pm. The layers of tragedy will, over time, accumulate around this imperfect movie and its great, deep performance -- and its greatish, deepish ones, too -- until everything about them assumes the impression of wisdom. We'll search this movie and Ennis Del Mar the way we might someone else's soul. We leave a little more devastated, a little more lost than we did the first time. You'll watch Heath Ledger and think the ache in his heart and in his bones seems realer, more contagious. Bad news has a way of doing that to an already iconic piece of acting. Have you seen "Rebel Without a Cause" lately? Of course, the Coolidge could just as easily have shown "Casanova" to remind us that the world has lost this happy, horny dude, too.


What a brilliant description of how most of us felt while we watched BBM again since we lost Heath.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

I think that this is a pretty good newspaper report on the reason for Heath's death.

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/la-et-ledger7feb07,1,3885175.story?ctrack=1&cset=true


Williams issued her first public comment on the death last Friday, saying that part of Ledger's legacy would be their 2-year-old daughter, Matilda, "the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl, who is the spitting image of her father. All that I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day," Williams said in a statement.

Meanwhile, officials of the Drug Enforcement Administration in Washington said they were conducting a "routine" investigation, as they would in any prescription overdose case, into how Ledger got the drugs that killed him.

Matilda, "the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl, who is the spitting image of her father. All that I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day," Williams said in a statement.

I haven't actually read that part of her statement before.  It is a good, strong, statement.
"— a thirst for life, for love, and for truth..."

wow, another big memorial!  So which one is the actual 'funeral' I wonder?
