    He was obviously a disturbed individual, I quite enjoyed the film though. Anyone else willing to admit they really dug the closing song? I've listened to it a bunch of times:

    Unless it's just recently come out it's a fake, I did some research after seeing it a little over a year ago and all the stuff floating around was fake. It's still terrifying to listen to though, hiking in bear country will never be the same.

    I don't plan on bringing young impressionable women with me on suicide missions.

    That old mean hungry bear that ate them was pretty scary. One of the last scenes was when that bear entered their camp and he just sat their filming his face like he knew that was going to be the bear that takes him out and his time is coming... I hope it wasnt intentional suicide.

    Movie was interesting but I was really upset that I sat through 2 hours waiting to hear that audio and then fucking herzog decides that I don't get to hear it. Fuck you, Werner, if I didn't want to hear it I wouldn't have chosen to watch the film. Stop making my choices for me.

    He was a moron with balls of steel.

    Is seen some Grizzlies fairly "close" while in hunting trips in ak but I can't imagine ever getting so close to one. That's insane.

    Respect for surviving those summers on the Katmai coast.

    I enjoyed how the picture amplified how scenic Alaska is. He was an environmentalist with strong beliefs which were covered in the documentary. The man in the museum scene addressed effecting the bears natural habitat, environment and ecosystem. All the pertinent stuff the audience really should have payed attention to.

    He was deluded, just like those that have died playing with wild animals in captivity. He had good intentions, but very much misguided by his obession/delusion with bears. He was also stupid to take others with him to camp where grizzlies were hunting.

    I would give him more of a pass for being eccentric and doing wonderful educational things for kids but because he brought his girlfriend to her death, sorry I can't.

    She trusted him as an expert and he did something incredibly stupid and gave her one of the worst deaths imaginable.

    Definitely batshit, and delusional.

    Balls of steel, though. I'll give him that. Think of any dollar amount you can, and it still wouldn't be enough to compel to spend one summer shacking up with grizzly bears, let alone 13.

    He was a fruitcake.. But he got amazing footage, and befriended foxes and things like that. He lived the way he wanted for 13 years, even though it was fruity and unwise.

    The truth, like usual, is in the middle.

    Must've been absolutely agonizing for the girlfriend. Apparently, the bear killed him, and I'm assuming injured her, and then dragged his corpse off to stash somewhere, and all the girlfriend could do was helplessly wait for the bear to come back and finish her off.

    As far as worst death ever, that's gotta crack the top 25, without bringing intentional torture into the mix.

    The guy was a complete nut job asshole that did more to hurt bear consevation than helped it. I dont know why someone didnt stop him when they knew he was doing all that dumb shit.

    The end is kind of creepy how he points out the old mean bear that is the most dangerous type of bear and will eat you . Showed the bear desperate for food diving for dead salmon on the bottom.
    He filmed the bear that ate them like the day before he popped his head in their area... and he still stuck around in the same old area... was like begging to get eaten. Dam the audio must have been the most brutal sounds of his skull getting crunched is why they wouldn’t let anyone hear it .
