Hertzog's subjective representation of Tim Treadwell who was working on a film about his relationship and work with grizzly bears in Alaska when he got killed by one of the bears. At first it's enjoyable but when one realizes Hertzogs hate towards Treadwell and everything he represents it gets annoying. Hertzog then seem just like the lead defender of the culture/nature split of western culture, not adding anything new to any discussion. It's more interesting to look at "craziness" and ask what is revealed in it, than to say that craziness is crazy (and should be punished!).
