    ★★★★

    Werner Herzog's "Grizzly Man" is a testament to the power of documentaries and how impactful they can be. The life of Timothy Treadwell is explored here, a man who spent 13 summers documenting wild, untamed bears in the Alaskan wilderness. Treadwell's clearly a little troubled, but his humility, ambition and bravery are all very admirable and he's definitely an interesting person to watch/listen to.

    Wasn’t a huge fan of this when it first released a few years ago so I decided to give it another go tonight. Took something a lot different from it this time and enjoyed it way more. 

    The mother-daughter relationship at the heart is so heartfelt and incredibly well-acted. The chemistry between Ronan and Metcalf is uncanny and you can feel their pent-up love and frustration for each other in every scene they share. Even the arguments they have illustrate…
