Performers, Cast and Crew:
Premiere - 07/01/2005
"Herzog not only tells an incredible story but implies a dark metaphysic of the natural world that makes this film unsettlingly larger than its human subject."
Rolling Stone - 08/11/2005
"[S]omething unique and unforgettable....Herzog conducts his own expedition into knowing the unknowable..."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/19/2005
"[A] mesmerizing work of disturbing power and unease....Herzog has bushwhacked fearlessly into one man's thorny soul."
New York Times - 08/12/2005
"It is the rare documentary like GRIZZLY MAN, which has beauty and passion..."
USA Today - 08/19/2005
"[T]his documentary offers an intimate window into its subject. By using Treadwell's own words, ideas and point of view, Herzog makes audiences feel as if they are poring over a video journal of a tortured soul."

"[T]his is at once a beautiful nature doc and a fascinating fable about a dangerous state of mind, American innocence."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2006
"[A] fascinating twice over: as a courageously close-up view of Alaskan wildlife, red in tooth and claw, and as an unwittingly self-condemning portrait of the artist as a would-be Tarzan of the Bears."

4 stars out of 5 -- "[An] exceptional documentary....[The film] does lend his quest a dignity it might otherwise have lacked."
Total Film - 06/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] tense and cinematic doc....Equal parts disturbing and hilarious."
Wall Street Journal - 11/20/2009
"[A] mature and evenhanded documentary. The film poses more questions than it answers, and has a haunting afterglow..."
