    A near perfect uncensored study of human nature. I love that Werner Herzog creates his own opinion Timothy Treadwell, neither admiring nor condemning him.

    I can feel the poop! It's warm! It just came from her butt! This was just inside of her. My girl! I'm touching it!...Everything about them is perfect! - Timothy Treadwell

    Herzog finally found someone more insane than Kinski.

    About halfway through "Grizzly Man," Timothy Treadwell says he wishes he was gay. It would make life so much easier, he said, because, in his mind, gay guys just fuck and forget it. And the women that he dates tend to fall for him.

    It's this kind of unchecked observation that reveals both Treadwell's stream of consciousness mode of operation and his just amazing self-absorption. We're treated to several of these, but most revolve around his insistence that he is…

    My first Werner Herzog film. Not the happiest of stories.

    The documentary starts off by introducing this tragic character, Timothy Tredwell, and man who's "life has gone wild." He is obsessive, protective, and indulgent of wildlife, especially Grizzlies. Over the course of his expeditions, he has shot over 100 hours of footage during his stay in the Alaskan Grizzly Bear sanctuary, and much of that is shown in this documentary. You see how passionate he is about their well being…

    Was Timothy Treadwell a tragic, delusional figure unable to live in society, or a failed actor who slyly shaped his life into a role based on his own improvised script? Either way one thing is clear about the self-appointed defender of grizzlies: he needed the bears far more than they needed him.

    There are spoilers here but if you know what this documentary is about then they may not matter that much anyway.

    Grizzly Man is many things but one of the main subject is religion. This may sound strange and even wrong to those who have seen the film but let me explain. In the film Timothy Treadwell says that his life had no meaning before he started taking care of the bears. He was drinking too much and would have…

    I was looking at Sight and Sound Magazine's Best Documentaries of All Time list, and I saw that Werner Herzog's documentary Grizzly Man made it onto the list. I'd enjoyed two other of his films and had seen he was an interesting character in Burden of Dreams. Naturally, I had to see this film.
    The person who the documentary is based on is in ways similar to those Herzog's films (who narrates and directs the film). Timothy Treadwell lived among…

    An inexhaustible text. For me, possibly THE inexhaustible text: the bottomless desire of autobiographies (any autobiography) endlessly refracted through media, nature, and experience (lived and memorialized) into pure "footage". The bears are to Treadwell what he himself is to Herzog (and Herzog might be to his audience) - ineffable, confusing grace.

    Simultaneously depressing and uplifting, if you can believe it, this story of a man who gave up everything --including his life and his girlfriend's-- to defend creatures he understood and loved more than his own kind is one of those few documentaries you truly must see, just so you can ask yourself what it means to be human.

    Herzog has never been afraid, he has been an adventurer, explorer. I love him for being that. He isn't only literal adventurer, man who films where nobody has every filmed before. He is also man who drills deep down to human souls, he finds the darkest paths and follows them. Some of these paths have light in them, some lead to dead-end. Timothy Treadwell's path starts from the light but ends up in the darkness. In a way, he reminds…
