    I love to listen to Werner Herzog talk but this is so uncomfortable in places it's almost unwatchable.

    Powerful documentary from Werner Herzog about the fascinating story of a man who lived with bears over a number of summers. It explores his extraordinary interactions with the bears, how his troubled life may have influenced the infatuation he's developed for nature and the contrasting contempt he holds for humanity. It also considers the constant boundary that should be ever present between man and nature, something lost on Timothy Treadwell and the tragic consequences of attempting to integrate in the way that he did. It's an intriguing watch and well recommended.

    I need to brush up on more Werner Herzog. I'm starting to understand what people like so much about him.

    This movie showcased a real-life and incredibly interesting character. Some of the footage was even incredibly personal and some of the interviewed in the film shared some seriously heavy material with Herzog. It was an incredible inside look at this man's life and friends.

    You find yourself on the side of the main character and yet still tragically and hesitantly critical of his naive optimism.

    I went through a whole range of emotion watching this and was thoroughly entertained throughout. Highly recommend.

    I spent 103 minutes wondering why I was supposed to give a shit that this lunatic was killed by a bear. The entire film verges on mockumentary; in fact, it kept reminding me of the episode of The Office where Michael Scott goes out alone into 'the wilderness'.
