Heath Ledger - RIP

It's unfortunate to hear that Heath Ledger passed away this afternoon in New York at only 28.

Whether it was a accidental drug overdose or not it was sad thing to hear as he's been not only a great actor but a great Australian ambassador living for a number of years locally here in Brooklyn.

I didn't want to make a big deal about this as I'm sure they'll be a lot written about this but I did want to draw peoples attention to what I think was definitely his best but often overlooked movie "Candy" (check out this imdb link).

P.S. For those of you reading this locally in New York check out Candy this Friday on Ch 222 (showtime) at 11.00pm


  1. Sniff sniff .. I hope you enjoyed the book which was alot more gritty, obviously a different beast to the film but they carried it off well. That chinese take out scene at the end is gut wrenching you really feel so sorry for his pitiful existence. Poor bastard..sniff sniff.

  2. Didn't know it was a book, thanks - will definitely check it out.
