Herzog is still the only person who could have made Grizzly Man. His admiration for Treadwell has its limits, but he understands, better than most directors, what it means to follow dreams into the belly of the beast.
A small masterpiece of a documentary that takes us into the heart of a complex darkness: the mysterious land of Alaska, the world of grizzly bears and, most significantly, the soul of Timothy Treadwell.
What really elevates Grizzly Man ... is the tension between the gloomy European's view of nature as indifferent and unresponsive to man's best intentions and the manic American's fevered, hopeful embrace of what would ultimately kill him.
