Documentaries You Should See: Grizzly Man

No discussion of documentaries would be complete without Werner Herzog.  I saw this documentary for the first time in college.  The Discovery Channel played it pretty frequently.

the film documents Timothy Treadwell, who spent a number of summers living with the Grizzzly bears in Alaska, until he and his girlfriend were eaten by a bear.

Jay from Red Letter Media said the film should be called, “They’re bears you fucking moron!”.  And with good reason.  Werner Herzog does not agree with Timothy’s romantic, anthropomorphic view of nature (not do I), and Werner does not shy from saying so.  Nonetheless, he bonds with Timothy as an amateur filmmaker, and defends his filmmaking abilities.
