    Grizzly Man
    Filmmaker Werner Herzog adds another real-life character to his growing pantheon of people who walk a fine line between visionary genius and madness in this documentary. Timothy Treadwell was a self-styled authority on bears who, starting in 1990, would spend as much time as possible each year in Alaska, camping out near a grizzly bear habitat. While Treadwell claimed to love the bears and felt as one with them, he had no formal training in their behavior, and while familiarizing himself with the creatures he would walk within a few feet of them with a video camera in hand. To many, Treadwell seemed part man of nature, part conjuror, and part self-promotion expert, but the part that guided his kinship with the bears failed him in 2003, when he and his girlfriend were killed in a grizzly attack. Treadwell shot hundreds of hours of footage of himself and the grizzlies, and Herzog has used this footage as the core of Grizzly Man, a documentary look at Treadwell's life and death, while also including interviews with people who knew him, animal experts, and scientists. Acclaimed British guitarist Richard Thompson composed and performed the film's musical score. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      grizzly man the dvd


      this is my favorite documentary ever and among my favorite movies of all time. the subject of the movie, a man named timothy treadwell, lived with and among bears and foxes in the katmai national park in alaska. he did this for 13 seasons during which he filmed over 100 hours of footage of bears, his interaction with bears, and just bears being bears. there is also footage of him with his fox friends. for some reason, when you watch the movie, treadwell sucks you right in. there is something about him that draws the viewer to continue watching with confusion but yet awe at the gorgeous animals and the incredible view he had in the "grizzly maze". i personally think the guy was a little off somehow, but no matter he remains genuine and truly committed to the bears he felt he came to know and become friends with. of course as everyone knows, his 13th season, he took a woman with him on his expedition as he called them. after leaving the grizzly maze for some reason he made the fatal decision to return and check on his bear friends as he often worried about the food available to the bears and other things sometimes intervening in natures natural process. upon returning to the area he normally camped, he encountered bears unfirmiliar to him and they killed and ate him and his girlfriend. what happened was tragic and terrible, but the still photography and the hundreds of hours of film left behind a rich legacy to treadwell and his passion for his beloved bears. i highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves nature and well, anyone who loves animals. again the scenery and the animals he filmed are incredible. i give it five stars for sure. something different. i dont recommend it for smaller children but my kids loved it too. you can also catch some of his footage on the show grizzly man diaries on friday nights on animal planet. if you like the show, you will love the movie.

      Timothy Treadwell has to be one of the craziest and yet most interesting people I've ever seen. His story is sad, but there is much humor and beauty to be found in his footage. If you like documentaries, be sure to check this out.
