    Like some TV sitcoms (such as The Office), Grizzly Man sets up a situation that is extremely uncomfortable because you know it's going to end badly. Timothy Treadwell's heart was in the right place, but it seemed to unbalance him. The result is disastrous and not at all funny. Some people find it difficult to watch a real person behave so persistently irrationally. But I found it interesting and even educational, if perhaps a bit longer than it needed to be to get its point across.

    I share Werner Hertzog’s pragmatism in this gorgeous documentary about Timothy Treadwell, the social outcast/wildlife advocate. Treadwell was a delusional man who saw himself as a savior to the grizzly bear; he and his girlfriend, Amie Huguenard died after being attacked by a wild bear in Alaska in October 2003.

    Timothy Treadwell lives amongst grizzlies for months at a time, makes a fox friend named timmy and reacts to odd things in the most outrageous manners. Whether its a "big bear" climbing a tree or bear "poopie", Treadwell is clearly in a world of his own. The only thing more outrageous than Treadwell himself is the friends and family who appear throughout this comedy.....I mean documentary. One such friend finds Treadwell amazing for his ability to keep his hair in place while riding waves.....he lives amongst grizzlies for months on end and THIS is the amazing part of him. The tirade against the government at the end of the movie is priceless and worth the ~$15 alone. This is a must see for those wanting a good laugh with a special friend who will have mutual appreciation for the outlandish character that IS Timothy Treadwell.

    This is a grim reminder to any idealistic person who wants to get out in the wilderness and "conquer" nature. Nature is better than you. Its stronger and faster and smarter and bites a lot harder. Know this. This is the story of Timothy Treadwell, the self proclaimed Grizzly expert who thought that through some dillusional right or privilege, he could 'save' the bears. I guess they didn't want his 'help' because they ate him. And his girlfriend too. Eesh. This is a great, awkward and unsettling documentary by none other than Werner Herzog. Of course.
