Wall Street Journal
Mr. Herzog's perspective is an invaluable balance to Mr. Treadwell's as the animal advocate approaches what seems like madness. Full Review

USA Today
A haunting and fascinating portrait of so much that is worth exploring: the implacability of nature, the hubris of human endeavor and the line between supreme dedication and madness. Full Review
David Edelstein
Makes for quite an emotional roller-coaster ride. You don't know whether to celebrate or mock, to laugh or weep. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
A small masterpiece of a documentary that takes us into the heart of a complex darkness. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Actually three movies in one: a wildlife film about how grizzly bears behave in their natural habitat, a character study of an eccentric environmentalist, and a chilling, voyeuristic narrative of how death stalks that man. Full Review
