 My uncle was telling me about this over the weekend, and that was the first I;ve heard of it. Now I REALLY want to see it.

 Hmm, I was under the impression that this film got a pretty wide release, but from the comments here you'd think otherwise. If that is the case, it's a damn shame because this is easily one of the most phenomenal movies of the year. A far superior documentary to the much acclaimed Murderball (which in itself was pretty good too). those interested should seek it out by whatever means possible.

 wait why wouldn't "none of us" get to see this movie? i mean it's playing at a lot of theatres around boston (where i live... obv). well i didn't like this movie. the director/narrator does a bang up job of showing forced moments (spreading of the ashes) rather than actual footage by treadwell. The moments with the coroner (sp?) old man were so awkwardly forced and unnecessary.

 It's at the art-house chain in Philly, the Ritz. It's not exactly on a wide release, but it's not NY/LA only either. Try a search with the movie and your zip code. If you live in the flyover states you might be in trouble . . . my apologies.

 Interesting review. I've read a lot of writeups on this movie and I think this is the only one that doesn't mention the fact that Treadwell was eventually eaten by the bears he loved.

 That fact is established within the first five minutes of the film.

 documentary films are dangerous.

 This was a good review, but IMO this movie deserved an A+. It was really amazing. I don't quite get the criticisms that parts of the film were "amateurish" or, as snowface writes, "forced." Amateurish compared to what--Ken Burns or "Spellbound"? It's a weird documentary, sure, but Herzog surely knows what he's doing. And nothing in the movie seemed forced to me; the coroner, for example, was obviously a weirdo who loved telling the story of Treadwell's demise. It's great, everyone should see it.
