    Do you guys think Timothy Treadwell was batshit crazy, or did he do alot of good for bear conservation and awareness? Fucking crazy how he was eaten with his girlfriend with audiotape. Anyways im surprised i just heard about this now. The Director was kind of annoying though.

    Your thoughts?

    He was a delusional and extremely insecure closet homesexual that couldn't face reality so he ran away to the alaskan bush to live out some fantasy and ended up getting eaten alive by a bear.

    Between the lower 48 and Alaska he had a connecting flight departing from reality and arriving in delusion.

    I don't think you know enough about film to have an opinion. :eek:

    As for Timmy, he was a square peg in a round hole and took some amazing footage. I have to point out that all the bears he acclimated to humans would end up shot if they came near human settlements. That's exactly why you're told not to feed wild animals, because then they become comfortable around humans and won't leave.

    Werner Herzog is actually a pretty awesome director and has some great films. Cave of Forgotten Dreams is one of his better ones if you are looking for a different perspective on him.

    His meltdown when the fox stole his hat was pretty funny.

    I saw the movie and parts of it were hilarious. But I saw it when I was younger.

    Looking back now I feel like a dick for laughing at someone's mental illness.

    Meh...
    Dude looked at stuff differently than most, and had the balls to go after his passion. I don't discredit a person for those things closet homosexual, or annoying, or whatever.

    Having said that, his passion cost him his life.

    That's not passion. That was a guy with an addictive personality and a lot of regrets.


    I love Herzog's belief in speaking the unvarnished truth.

    ".... You should never listen to this tape."


    Please. How many times have you exclaimed "AND SHE'S GOT BUSH" in the porn thread? Like a million?
