Grizzly Man Reviews:

Upon coming out of Grizzly Man, with my friend, I couldn't support noticing my own face in the reflection of the lobby mirrors... my face was fully blank. I looked over at my friend, and noticed she was merely staring down at her shoes and scratching her nose. Exiting out onto the street, joining the rest of the crowd as we all find for our cars, I couldn't support but trust I was still staring into the lobby mirrors... nearly each head was shaking, and each expression blank. I actually trust I will never know how I feel about Timothy Treadwell. A man who accidentally grew into a man. Grizzly Boy instantly opens with the facts surrounding Timothy Treadwell and his girlfriend Amie Huguenard's death. These facts will stay inside you as you grow acquainted with Timothy and the animals surrounding his demise. Sadly, Amie Huguenard remains a faceless mystery.Werner Herzog's soul remains intact, as he gently disassembles the matter of Timothy Treadwell's. Failed actor? Inveterate liar? Misguided Mercenary? Was Timothy Treadwell merely testing out the part of some nice Discovery Channel episode in his head? We watch and listen as a lonely Timothy walks and talks into his only companion, a MiniDV camera, about his female problems, drug problems, memories and most importantly his love of animals.Bears and Foxes in particular. There is one thing you should never doubt about this man, and that is of his love for Bears. "I love you, I love you..." We constantly hear him telling to the Bear's and Foxes that had become his "friends" over the years. And through Herzog's direction it is impossible to miss the beauty in this.Timothy Treadwell's photography in this movie is absolutely extraordinary. And Mr. Herzog did an extraordinary job putting it all together. In my opinion, this is his greatest movie since Tiny Dieter Needs To Fly. (Un) fortunately, I cannot stop thinking about it. I cannot stop wondering who this boy was... He wrapped himself in bandana's, claimed to be a "Peaceful Warrior", there to protect the Bears. But from what? The arguments were made that acquainting himself with them, he was doing much more hurt then good. Why could they receive to know a human? How should this support them in the future? And we know how it ended for him...How can you just sit there and watch one mans entire life be wrapped up in a two hour film? And then declare his work meaningless? You can't. Was he just a suicidal man, testing one large act? Was he truly some feral warrior, bringing awareness and the importance of Bear security and security to light? Was he a directionless maniac who ultimately got an innocent woman killed?The duality of Timothy Treadwell is merely one more example of the duality of mankind. And the mirror in which I had been looking into had, in fact, been the film screen itself. Unfortunately, it appears as though he believed the Bears surrounding him shared this depth. And who am I to say you they don't?


For thirteen years "grizzly man" Timothy Treadwell went to an Alaskan wildlife refuge on Kodiak Island and pitched his tent alone -- and the last couple of times with a girlfriend (Amy Huguenard) -- spending the summers among large grizzly bears. The rest of the year he went to schools and "free of charge" showed his movies of the bears and his exploits. When the last of his summers drew to a close he and his girlfriend died among the grizzlies as he'd everytime known -- and even David Letterman had pointed out -- that he might. Filmmaker Werner Herzog, longtime student of crazy eccentric loners on heroic doomed quests, has taken on Treadwell's life and personality as the topics of a rare and strong documentary. At the heart of "Grizzly Man" are Herzog's selective cullings from movie Treadwell left behind chronicling both the bears and his own demons. Herzog has added interviews with girls in Treadwell's life, with his parents, with the pilot who took him to and from his campgrounds and soon found his and his girlfriend's remains, and with Franc Fallico, the unusually sympathetic and sensitive -- and perhaps a bit looney -- coroner who examined these. The director has bound it all together with his own frank and idiosyncratic narration. The effect is a rare sober look at the more delusional aspects of man's relations to wild animals. At times Herzog by implication sympathetically urls Treadwell with his former principle star and sparring partner, the late angry eccentric actor Klaus Kinski. Like Kinski Treadwell had tantrums on a movie set. But his set was the outdoors and there was no director to spar with; his sparring partners were nature and his own troubled psyche. Nature contained, of course, living witnesses, chief among them the grizzly bears he knows can slay him. He repeatedly says the camera how much he loves them. He loves the gentler, smaller foxes near whose dens he pitches his tents during the second halves of his summer sojourns. He says the camera you gotta be firm with the bears, and he tells he knows how to handle them, even though he also repeatedly tells he knows he may die there. He is a gambler. Is he a complex man, or merely a confused one? Is he brave, or just foolhardy? What is his purpose in spending all this time among the grizzlies? Is he gathering information, or taking refuge among monsters he need not please, only hold a secure distance from (though he continually comes closer to bears than the park guidelines and nice sense require)? He has a soft sissified manner and voice and even tells he wishes he were gay. But he also rants and rages embarrassingly and tiresomely vs unseen enemies, poachers, sightseers, rangers, hunters, park officials, the entire urban settled globe he runs from to this globe he idealizes and blindly sees as perfect. As Herzog notes, Treadwell sought to disregard nature's cruelty, and any time it was in his face -- as when the bears were starving in a dry spell and began eating their own young -- he sought to manipulate nature to eliminate the ugliness. He faults not the bears but the rain gods. Young Timothy according to his parents was an ordinary man who loved animals from childhood and got a diving scholarship to college. But he injured his back and quit college and he drank and when he went to LA to act and didn't receive a part on Cheers he "spiraled down." He never had a lasting relationship with a girl and the drinking became serious and constant. In vain he tried programs, meetings, self-discipline -- but the drinking went on and was killing him. Finally he got sober for the grizzlies and the foxes. He decided to devote his life to them and he pledged to them that he would be clean and healthy. It was a miracle. Yet he remained not only manic-depressive but passive-aggressive, as his alternations between gentle declarations of love of the animals and his spewing of vitriol vs the civilized globe attest.Treadwell's soft-voiced declarations of love and sweetness among the grizzlies would be pretty -- if such behavior, in a globe of extreme physical risk, surrounded by limber lumbering beasts with nice teeth and long claws, while preening for the camera with caps and bandanas and golden locks in a dozen alternate takes -- were not criminally silly and irresponsible. Herzog hides none of this in his portrait, which is both sympathetic and ruthless.As the years passed the Grizzly Boy found transitions back to civilization harder and harder to make. On the last occasion, an airport official infuriated him by questioning the validity of his ticket and he turned around with his girlfriend -- who was scared of bears! -- and returned to the "maze," the most risky of his summer campgrounds because it wasn't in the launch where the bears should see him and steer clear but among their burrows and the brush. It was soon than he ever stayed and the bears he knew and had names for were hibernating now, replaced by fresh unknown and more hostile and nasty animals. He gotta also have been more desperate, perhaps more careless? We see the bear that probably devoured him and the woman.Herzog has access to everything, even an audio-only tape of Timothy and Amy's truly grizzly death. He spares us, though.As Herzog starts his movie by stating, Timothy Treadwell crossed a line between wild animal and human that could never be crossed. This is a line so many another touchy-feely "nature" and "wildlife" movies cross. See "The March of the Penguins" and you'll have a prime example. "Grizzly Man" isn't meant to be about grizzlies. It's about boys who cross that line -- who willfully misunderstand nature for their own misguided reasons, to serve their own dysfunctional needs.


Werner Herzog has created an outstanding documentary feature, adeptly letting Timothy Treadwell's work speak for itself. Herzog interjects his own opinions only on opportunity and makes no attempt to demonize or rehabilitate Treadwell's complicated legacy. The footage of the grizzlies is amazing, something far more intimate (for better and for worse) than anything I have ever seen in another documentary footage. It is almost beyond belief that Treadwell lasted 13 years in Alaska among these bears before he finally met his end. He had deluded himself into thinking that he had earned (or been given by God?) some type of unique immunity from hurt among these animals. What complicates this delusion is the fact that he knew he had to behave as a "gentle warrior" among the grizzlies in order to fend off their occasional aggressive maneuvers. This description, although somewhat romanticized, at least acknowledges a rational need for some form of security among the bears. Treadwell decides to camp in the heart of the "Grizzly Maze" almost as a means of proving his unique ability to survive the dangers that would no doubt capture and claim ordinary men. He dares the wilderness to take his life---and it does. I accept with Herzog's decision not to enjoy the audio recording of the attack. Seeing the expression on the ex-girlfriend's face as Herzog listens to the tape himself is very poignant. Herzog, however, seems to grandstand a bit when he counsels the girl to destroy the tape and never listen to it. The girl could be allowed to create up her own mind what to do with the tape and does not need Herzog's or anyone else's tip in that regard. However, this is a minor quibble vs so many skillful moments brought to life in Herzog's film. On a final note, I think that Treadwell missed his calling---he was definitely a Fox Boy rather than a Grizzly Man! Those foxes adored him!
