So we have lots of build up and no conclusion. Lynch who is a great documentary producer lets his subject off the hook. Doesn't the idea of developing a suit to ward off grizzlies require testing against actual grizzlies? A film that leaves you hanging.
Project Grizzly had it's moments, but it sorely needing footage of the suit in action against a bear.
As many have noted, this film is not about a man fighting a grizzly bear, despite what the pitch would seem to promise. It's about a man eccentric enough to build a suit for a rematch against a bear that once pushed him over. In other words, it's about a fucking egotistical moron with too much time and money on his hands and a documentary crew giving us the most boring version. It's Moby Dick for rednecks and this time there is no climax. Troy talks about his knives, his father and rambles almost incoherently about an encounter with a bear. He makes a number of suits and there are some funny Jackass like test runs. Had the documentary explored more of the mans psychosis (like the incredible Grizzly Man) it would be of some interest, instead it pats Troy on the head to elicit cheap laughs. You're better off going elsewhere for more intelligent and well constructed documentaries.
