10. GRIZZLY MAN
dir. Werner Herzog
world premiere 2005
U.S. release 2005
Because in a world that pathologizes almost every form of ardor, burdening romantic love with the combined weight of all of them, I
learned a lot from Timothy's unwavering, fundamentalist love, in some ways because but also regardless of its
object. Herzog's POV comes through indelibly, but this survives as a crazy, unpolluted emblem of a real character.
