Synopsis:
Grizzly Man is Werner Herzog's breathtaking feature documentary which combines his own work with original footage by Timothy Treadwell, the intrepid bear expert who for thirteen summers risked his life living with Grizzly Bears in Alaska, until eventually he got killed by one of the bears he sought to protect. Whilst Treadwell perhaps paid the inevitable price for his work, the one hundred hours of footage he shot over this period is among the most incredible, stunning and moving ever committed to film. Grizzly Man is a modern day masterpiece which uncovers as much about human nature as it does the bears Treadwell set out to study.

What is it about bears? - Grizzly Man review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
22/03/2009

I really ask why some men believe they can co-exist with grizzly bears or confront them and come off equal. Timothy certainly had a passion about the species and used that to his benefit. Herzog as a director investigating Timothy tries to be impartial but clearly raises some questions that need addressed. Timothy's love for the animals is never in doubt but his failings as a member in our society is debated. Using Timothy's own footage gives a personal and intimate insight into the man, almost as if he was working alongside the director. The final dramatic closing moments are handled with care and I'm glad that this was left off camera. Overall Grizzly Man is an insight, albeit a tragic one, into Timothy rather than the bears he protected.

Herzog, and the extremes of human life. - Grizzly Man review by Steve

Spoiler Alert
23/09/2014

Herzog investigates the life of Timothy Treadwell, a conflicted loner who had spun some minor celebrity out of his close cohabitation with grizzly bears in Alaska; and he and his girlfriend's death by them. A story of two obsessives, Treadwell and the dry, inquisitive Herzog, with a brilliant narration from the director.

It Made me Grizzly, Man!!! - Grizzly Man review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
11/08/2006

Having really high expectations for a movie is always a bad thing, the big summer blockbusters that have promised so much and then failed to deliver.The same could be said for this movie, the reviews have been good the premise looked promising but when I watched it. What a drag. Yes treadwell is a sort of interesting character but the only reason he made the films and died at the end was to gain the notoriety that he had so craved in the real world and not achieved. For me this movie came across as a very long suicide note from a lost soul.Far to much filler.
