Paula and I watched the DVD version of the highly-touted documentary, "Grizzly Man," a "devastating and heartrending take on grizzly bear activists Timothy Treadwell and Amie Huguenard, who were killed in October of 2003 while living among grizzlies in Alaska." (link)
I have two observations:
- The central character in the movie, Tim Treadwell, not only deserved to be killed by the bears he felt the need to befriend - and annoy to no end, by the time he was attacked and killed and eaten, I was rooting for the bears.
- Everyone who currently resides in the Pacific Northwest is weird or stupid or both. Treadwell's ex-girlfriend and the coroner in the movie in particular deserve to be imprisoned for being really peculiar. Everyone else in that part of the country should be prevented from ever multiplying. EVER.
The documentary, for what it's worth, served its purpose. The producer wanted to send a message to all you white boys out there who feel some inexplicable compulsion to head to Alaska and to "be one" with the wildlife. That documentary's message is: Do it at your own peril. The creatures with which you are going there to develop a relationship will enjoy your company - starting with your vital organs and devouring from there.So. I give "Grizzly Man" three stars for its clear and unequivocal message. And I give the grizzly bear four stars for making the world a better place.
