Grizzly Man

Martin, Marc and I caught the 7:30pm showing of Grizzly Man at the Royal Theatres in West LA. I had seen the previews before and was really intrigued by this film. I'm always curious about the lives of people like Timothy Treadwell, people who are so driven with a passion for something that they give up almost everything else for it.

The film features some of the most beautiful shots of Alaska I've ever seen (not that I've really seen a lot), and pretty amazing close-up shots of grizzly bears in their natural habitat. While I didn't always agree with the way the film was edited, it did keep me hooked on the flow of the story.

Very tragic though. I'm half-disappointed and half-thankful that they didn't include the audio of Timothy and Amie being killed by the bear (which they say was probably the one in the picture above). I have this morbid curiosity about it, but at the same time I know that I'll be in tears if I ever do hear it, given the reactions and comments of the people in the film who did get a chance to listen to the couple's last moments.
