It’s been almost five and a half years since Heath Ledger‘s shocking death. Now, a newly unearthed documentary featuring the twisted diary he kept during the filming of The Dark Knight is shedding light on his final days.
As Heath prepared to play the demented Joker, he once explained, “I sat around in a hotel room in London for about a month, locked myself away, formed a little diary.”
In this clip from the German documentary Too Young to Die, his father, Kim, flips through the book’s haunting pages.
“He liked to dive into his characters,” Kim remembers. “But this time he really took it up a notch.”
