Great Documentary!

Very Very good documentary that I thought was very well done and narrarated. In a couple scenes he says the F word and in one instance he uses it about twenty times in about 2 minutes. Also conatins some violent content. Appropriate for ages 14 +

I was concerned...

OK. i will say that the movie was well done. i did not say tactfully done. treadwell talked of his wish to be gay and the advantages of that, but says that he will remain heterosexual because he can't be gay. also, at the end of the film, he repeatedly flicks off the camera in context w/ the park service, saying they were willfully neglecting the bears, and so on. also, he talks to the bears/foxes as if they were people and names them accordingly. there is also contact w/ bear feces and mentions of bear cannibalism. he is portrayed as a dillusional, paranoid, irratic, and unhinged young man obsessed w/ what he thinks is savign the bears. not appropriate for the younger set because there is explicit mention of his and his girlfriend's death by bear and being eaten alive. there is a medical examiner/coroner who gives explicit details into the gory death of timothy treadwell. there is also bears fighting, and a bear carcass cut up so u can see the innards, and the narrator has a german accent, so it sounds like the movie is being narrated by arnold schwarzenneger. this is not a movie about bears. this is about the progressive insanity of a young man who meets an untimely death. SERIOUSLY consider before taking anyone under 13 or 14 to see this movie. better yet, see it urself first and see all the 'content'.

Outstanding Documentary

This is an outstanding documentary, and while Herzog carefully protects the viewer from the actual recording of what inevitably happens to the man in the film, its language may bother some parents, and they should be prepared that the man who is the subject of the film did not survive.
