Mostly, this is a positive view of Heath's life,not unlike a wake of sorts where fond memories of the departed areshared in order to heal and try to move forward. I'm also glad it showed other movies Heath had been a part of, instead of just his last one. Still the movie isn't a complete waste of time.

Footage of Heath actingalong the best actors in the business, we see the humanity in Heath andjust how he was human, he did suffer from the constant overwhelmingfame, and in my opinion enjoyed his work rather than his benefits fromit.
