Grizzly Man - * * * *

Viewed on DVD.


Grizzly man is one of those movies that haunts you. I found myself thinking about it all the time, discussing it with people, and reading about it. It reminded me of Jon Krakauer's non-fiction book, "Into the Wild," in both subject and location.

It's about a self-proclaimed Grizzly Bear conservationist Timothy Treadwell -- a man who lives among Grizzly bears in Alaska for years until one of them decides to kill him.

What's haunting is Werner Herzog's narration and choice of images in this documentary. Somehow, Werner is able to get inside Timothy's head to try to help us understand why he's living life so dangerously.

This is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen.
