Review
Timothy Treadwell was quite a guy, a self appointed crusader and protector for the grizzly bears of Alaska, his commitment over thirteen summers was without doubt, though his motives and methods were perhaps more confused. What Herzog has created from Treadwell's copious footage is a stunning wildlife documentary in which the observer is as fascinating as his beloved subjects; in fact Treadwell is a perfect real life example of the damaged, obsessive characters in a number of Herzog's films, and the director's completely impartial, but humane, narration adds considerable depth to Treadwell' s world. Grizzly Man is a gripping almost hypnotic tale, the often amazing footage beautifully and thoughtfully edited right up to the sad but not altogether unsurprising conclusion.
