Werner Herzog goes on his own journey throughout this film, meeting many irreverent & loving commentators on Treadwell's life, as he attempts to understand a man who is his polar opposite when it comes to seeing love in nature's maw.
His conclusions may not be unfounded, but given the fact that a viewer who knows nothing about Treadwell prior to seeing the film only gets to experience his life through two hours of footage and interviews (roughly 8% of the whole story, probably) and Herzogs critical lens, its quite also not unfou....
Grizzly Man works on a few levels for me: Treadwell's wildlife footage has an intensity about it which is rarely seen outside the very best David Attenborough documentaries.
