…it’s worth setting the VCR, DVR, or Tivo for.

Jim and I watched it last night, and it’s easy to get caught up in this guy’s paranoia, his odd personality, and his incredible way with animals.

It’s a 3-hour documentary, and there’s lots of incredible footage.

In brief: It’s a self-made movie of Timothy Treadwell who spent 13 years living with Grizzly Bears in the Alaskan wilderness. What you’re seeing is his raw footage… his attempt at "helping" these bears wild while he was living with them in the wild… up until that last moment when he was killed by one of the bears. It was October, 2003.

Here’s a preview


“Grizzly Man” was named Best Documentary of 2005 by both the New York Film Critics Circle and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association. In addition, it has received numerous awards and accolades.
