The Forum Presents 'Grizzly Man'
Oct. 21, 2005 – "Grizzly Man" will play at The Forum, Market Square East on Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m.
"Grizzly Man" explores the life and gruesome death of amateur grizzly bear expert and wildlife preservationist Timothy Treadwell. The film is a powerful cautionary tale about modern man's relationship to wild nature as it follows Treadwell's journeys to Alaska where he lived among the grizzlies and grew to love them. Treadwell's crusade to defend the grizzlies tragically ended when he and his girlfriend were attacked and killed by a rogue grizzly in Oct. 2003.
New York Times: "'March of the Penguins' may be a good film but 'Grizzly Man' is a great one. At its center is a charismatic modern-day hippie who lived in Alaska on and off for 13 years. An initially appealing figure, Treadwell loses his glamour as he grows to imagine himself a kind of honorary grizzly; the man who gave cute pet names to the beasts in his wilderness neighborhood appears increasingly unhinged and messianic."
Variety: "Nothing short of extraordinary"
Roger Ebert.com: "An astonishing portrait…brilliant"
Hollywood Reporter: "One of the best nature films ever made."
