Arguably Werner Herzog’s most renowned film, Grizzly Man is a thought-provoking documentary about Tim Treadwell, a man who, as the title suggests, lived among bears. While he remained only known for how his story ended, by one of the bears turning on him, Grizzly Man is the exploration of the man’s complex mind, unlimited energy and love for nature. It could be because of the subject matter or because of Herzog’s mesmerizing monotone narration, and maybe it is because of both – but Grizzly Man becomes a supremely beautiful look at psychology and how it collides nature. Also like most of Herzog’s other work it’s a hunt for the peculiar, so expect many funny, absurd, and charming moments.
I recommend this movie all the time. It is so Crazy! I cannot believe they got this much footage. Everything you see is real. One of those things where real life is crazier than anything you could make up.
If you really want to know how this dumb-ass died… watch this movie. If you don’t, I can tell you he was killed by wild bears because he believed he was their best buddy. The bears thought he was an easy lunch.
What did you think? Who should watch it?
