Grizzly Man
Werner Herzog United States, 2005
One of the elements that makes Grizzly Man such a fascinating documentary is the contentious dialogue between Herzog’s narration and Treadwell’s running commentary, but it isn’t the film’s purpose to settle the debate over the correct perspective on nature. That was resolved by the bear. Herzog’s true interest is the more mysterious realm of human nature, and with Treadwell, he adds to a career-long obsession with visionaries undone by hubris and madness.

There’s no way that Herzog isn’t aware that he’s also crafting a weird little comedy routine. The sound of his carefully enunciated psychological profile layered over the image of Treadwell silently going apeshit is just too blatantly jarring.

I was haunted by thoughts of Treadwell after seeing Grizzly Man and longed to really know what made him tick. Sadly, this film was all about what made him stop ticking.

That Herzog found and put together such vivid, amazing elements of Treadwell’s time amongst the bears is a boon for Herzog auteurists, who love to engage the director’s submergence in exotic locals and flirtations with insanity, but Grizzly Man’s delights go far beyond a mere documentary thematic retread. The film is a character study, a human study, first and foremost, but one permanently inundated in mystery.

From this raw – sometimes bracingly raw – material, Werner Herzog has fashioned an unnerving documentary portrait of a man who went to the limit of humanity and beyond.

A remarkable meditation on violence, nature, filmmaking and — Herzog’s usual subject — the mystery of human nature.

Grizzly Man must be seen as Herzog’s first authentic found-footage movie. . . . Herzog admits admiration for Treadwell’s camerawork, considering him more of a compatriot than a subject, but the film is nevertheless the work of two men, two competing visions, two antithetical agendas.
