The Grizzly MAn

So, one of the films I downloaded and watched yesterday is " Grizzly Man" by Werner Herzog.
It talks about this guy, Timothy Treadwell, who's completely passionate about grizzly bears and wants to be one of them and be accepted by them.
He spends day after day alone in their company and then, one day, he ( and his unlucky girlfriend) is devoured by a bear.
The film presents the footage fgilmed by Treadwell together with interviews to people he used to know, and a voiceover y Herzog.

I'm not sure what it is, but there's something stunning about this film. This guy Treadwell, he was amazing. He had this childish way of speaking and of getting excitedabout things that reminds me of, I don't know, Michael Jackson perhaps?

VEry fascinating characters. People the world doesn't, cannot, understand.

What is responsible? Is being a human a responsible thing?
