Grizzly People

Where does Werner Herzog find these folks? I finally saw Grizzly Man last night after a number of people recommended it. Amazing. Megalomaniac guy with a death wish goes to Alaska every summer ("alone") to act like a grizzly bear and then he and his invisible girlfriend get eaten by a bear. Classic Werner. There is something compelling about the guy but at the same time he is so obviously delusional and troubled that you can't but feel for him. Incredible wild life photography as well as a study into the mind of someone that wanted out.

Is this movie a hoax? Too many opportunists to be real. Coroner, former girlfriend seem to be lead on so much by Werner in interviews.
