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

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 …
