Did you happen to catch “Grizzly Man” on the Discovery Channel a few nights ago?
It was pretty awesome. Then again I’m addicted to the Discovery Channel as well as documentaries, so when the two combine – I’m all kinds of there! This particular one was one of the best I’ve ever seen. It was three hours long and every single minute was compelling.
“Grizzly Man” is a documentary that looks into the life of eccentric Timothy Treadwell a.k.a the “Grizzly Man.” He was to the grizzly what Jane Goodall is to the chimp, and he actually lived amongst the grizlies in Alaska’s wilderness for months at a whack. There’s amazing footage he took of the bears and all sorts of footage of him being his eccentric self.
It’s great stuff, it really and truly is. The scenery is breathtaking and there’s something kind of inspiring about seeing someone so full of passion and determination for something they care so much about.
Below are a few other reviews:
“Nothing short of extraordinary.”
“One of the best nature films ever made.”
It was the winner of numerous awards, including Sundance Film Festival’s Alfred P. Sloan Award, the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Non-Fiction Film and the L.A. Film Critics Association Award for Best Documentary. Not bad,eh?
I’m not sure if the Discovery Channel will be showing another encore presentation of the documentary, but they have the dvd available on their website. I noticed that the’re also selling a dvd called Grizzly Diaries, also about Timothy and his bears.
