Herzog comes across as the worst kind of cinematic jackass-the filmmaker who doesn't trust his own work to speak for itself.

Wild Kingdom was never like this... In Herzog's bizarre rerun, Treadwell gets to be the star of his own movie. The only thing he had to do was die.

Wait for video ... Thirty minutes of this would have been mesmerizing. Over three times that amount is just repetitious.

[Grizzly Man] fails to establish Treadwell as much more than a serious headcase, let alone a titanic figure.
