Shy of the melodramatically annoying narration of director Herzog, Grizzly Man is one of those perfect documentaries. The story is just one of those with a distinct beginning, middle and end. Grizzly Man was so thoroughly documented by its protagonist, over almost decade, that at times it almost seems like it might have been a fiendish collaboration between filmmaker and subject. Obviously this wasn’t the case, but what Herzog is able to piece together is the gradual unraveling of a man losing his perspective: a perversely compelling watch.
