A good documentary. This guy was crazy. Well directed and good narration. It was kind of pointless but still worth seeing.

Grizzly Man is a powerful and stunning documentary, steeped in the sadness that surrounds the tragic story it portrays. The film wisely takes a mostly observational approach without editorializing, using actual footage of Treadwell to weave the emotional narrative of his story. Herzog involves himself at a critical moment in one of the best parts

Well structured and fascinating. What a disturbed man. Are documentaries that highlight bizarre individuals (this, Trekkies, Spellbound) good? Are we laughing at their expense?

Truly remarkable documentary about one mans fascination with wild bears and his ultimate death at the hands of the creatures he loved and cared for. A nature film which explores the tract of human behaviour rather than the unpredictable characteristics of the Wild Alaskan grizzly bears. Painstakingly put together by director Werner Herzog with revealing interviews and footage that comes across as sad, funny and emotionally charged. Wonderfully challenging and a mesmerizingly brilliant exercise in filmmaking.

This typically leftfield Herzog oddity is alternately beautiful and infuriating; the story of the Steve Irwin-like Timothy Treadwell and his childlike obsession with bears and filmmaking gripped me throughout and left me haunted.

Grizzly Man

This is the doc about that guy--you know the one--he lived in the wild and filmed grizzly bears until he and his gf got mauled to death by the bears? It's a very good documentary because it's an interested topic and Timothy Treadwell is a really eccentric character. It provokes a lot of good discussion, so watch it with other people! There's also some great cinematography of nature and bears.

My biggest problem with this film is Werner Herzog. Werner Herzog can suck it. He gives his opinion and analysis in all of his docs, and it's annoying. He is pretentious, over-analytical, pseudo-intellectual, and has a super annoying accent. His interviews seem contrived, his subjects seemed rehearsed, and everything seems super-manipulated. I do not like him. He's lucky that this was such a grea...
