I think some of the reviews here confuse the question of whether the central character is an impressive person with whether this is a good film. In my view this is an exceptional docmentary, and simply blew me away the first time I saw i . Contrary to what is stated below, the wildlife footage is stunningly beautiful (look up "Grizzly Man end song" on youtube for an impression and also a beautiful song!), but the real star of the film is Treadwell himself, a fascinating character whose obsessive

A rather disturbing and crazy look into the life of a man teetering on the edge of insanity whilst allegedly protecting grizzly bears who were in a national park which would kind of mean they were protected. Treadwell comes across as a real serious contender for craziest man alive especially how he interacts with all the animals and his rants at the rest of man kind its like watching a car crash happen in front of you bizarre does not do it justice. I could not recommend this and had to struggle

This guy was killed by a bear because he's a man, not a bear. There's a difference between men and bears, they're bears and we're men. They have claws and we have hands. Bears can kill and eat with their hands because of their claws, while we need guns and knives and forks to eat bears. This man didn't have a gun, not even a knife and fork, just his hands, but the bear had claws - because he's a bear and the man was a man. If the man had a gun he could of had the bear for dinner, but he didn't.

true doc. about peter pan type playing with real live teddy bears only tragically and dramatically one of them ate him and his very brave girlfriend who tried to fight it off.
i felt for this man throughout..his mental decline became more evident as the film progressed.
The film maker and documentary voice over ( terrible at remembering names) was excellent and made the somewhat narcissitic self film of grizzly man an excersise in compassion.
wild nature does not thank man for sentiment

a quite moving documentary which was uncomfortable to watch at times . It portrayed the life of Timothy Treadwell who lived with these huge wild bears for 13 years and tried to help educate people about their habitat which was being destroyed . Tim Treadwell came across as a wacky , delusional man who unfortunately began to believe that he was their friend & guardian and ultimately one of these enormous grizzly wild bears attacked & killed both Treadwell and his girlfriend who feared them.
