Editorial Reviews

DEADLY PASSION - The Timothy Treadwell Tragedy is a documentary film by Alaskan filmmakers Stefan Quinth and David Kaplan centering on the fatal bear maulings of bear activist Timothy Treadwell and his companion that occurred in October 2003 in Katmai National Park, Alaska. The incident has attracted unprecedented media attention, including news and magazine features, books, and film productions. The details of the story are a source of ongoing controversy, and spans issues of bear-human relations that are far greater than the incident itself. DEADLY PASSION is a film that examines this tragic event within this context.

Not worth the money; ($20 + shipping). Only 30 minutes long. I thought it was boring.

"Deadly Passion- Tragedy in Katmai" is a disappointing documentary about wildlife activist Timothy Treadwell, who died tragically by bears with his girlfriend in Alaska. This same subject was handled far better by genius director Werner Herzog in Grizzly Man. "Deadly Passion" has the title of a B movie steamy romance thriller, but lacks the passion. Timothy Treadwell was a fiery, mercurial person. He embodied contradictions. He sounded like the stereotypical flamboyant gay man, yet he had several girlfriends. He loved Nature, yet had no problems with throwing colleagues under the bus when it suited him. He had a kinship with bears, yet he had no scruples about lying about his past. "Deadly Passion" touches on these issues, but doesn't give them much depth. There are several shots of the same bears shown over and over and over and over again, so one lacks the sense of Alaska's natural riches, the "REAL America" as Sarah Palin would say Going Rogue: An American Life. It's only a half-hour documentary, so it feels rushed (because it is) Treadwell embodied the quintessential Back to Nature kind of guy, and this documentary is like a PSA. It does come across as a PSA at times, from talking about wildlife preservation to "be careful in the woods, kids!" One would expect one of the Care Bears to appear, saying, "The bears in Nature are NOT all cuddly and pink like us." It's THAT disappointing. "Deadly Passion" is deathly boring.

I've bought and read all I could find on Timothy Treadwell (I was a guide guiding bearviewing in the very same places he camped - which BTW means he would have hated me ... that's ok, I respect and admire him nonetheless). This is not the best material available.
