This may well be the first time I encourage our readers to watch something on TV. But, as I was checking a link for this post on The Internet Movie Database, I saw an ad for the “World Television Premiere of Grizzly Man today, Friday, February 3, 2006, at 8PM Eastern and Pacific on the Discovery Channel. Given that I had thought of blogging on the film, it seemed a sign that I should first encourage readers to watch it.
I saw the flick Wednesday night at a special screening for members of Film Independent and it blew me away. When I ran into some friends afterwards, we couldn’t stop talking about the film. And yesterday I couldn’t stop thinking about it. It is one of the most thought-provoking documentaries I have ever seen. The tale it tells is almost mythic. I don’t want to say anything more about it as that must compromise your experience of this cinematic masterpiece. So, just WATCH THIS MOVIE, tonight on the Discovery Channel at 8PM (Eastern and Pacific).
