** The director of the Alutiiq Museum is clearly uncomfortable about speaking ill of the dead, but when asked for his honest opinion on Treadwell, he is almost as blunt: Treadwell had no business interacting with the bears in the way he did, and his actions did more harm than good.

** Late in the film, Treadwell is standing by his camp, noting that anyone not experienced in doing what he's doing will die in the grizzly maze. Then a subtitle appears, stating that the location is Treadwell's death is directly behind him.

* BerserkButton: Treadwell gets uncharacteristically upset and profane when a fox steals his hat. And later it gets worse when he goes on an unnerving rant about poachers.

* {{Jerkass}}: Tim, who created a fake backstory as an orphan, was a horrible hypocrite, and a paranoid extremist who ended up killing himself and his girlfriend. Most interviewees share this opinion along with thinking of him as an IdiotHero, and the pilot who was at the scene comes right out and calls him "retarded".

* BavarianFireDrill / RefugeInAudacity: One of the more disturbing aspects of the film is how many people just ''assumed'' that Treadwell was some kind of wildlife expert, because he had video of himself with the bears - when he actually ''was not'' a trained zoologist, biologist, or really had any formal wilderness survival training whatsoever. Clips are shown of him even being invited to give presentations at ''elementary schools'' about his "work" with the bears - again, because people assumed he wouldn't be doing this if he wasn't trained or didn't know what he was doing. He even got interviewed on TV by David Letterman. Several interviewees were stunned after Treadwell's death to see the uncut footage of his delusional and self-aggrandizing rants, including his constant paranoia about utterly non-existent "poachers" he believed he was defending the bears from.



* BrokenPedestal: Before the movie and his death, Timothy Treadwell was well-liked and respected amongst many animal-rights groups and people. He was always seen as being a very likeable and nice guy. The documentary shows what he was really like.... and it's not nice.



* KnowNothingKnowItAll: In the past, Treadwell was seen as an expert among animal rights groups, but the documentary reveals just how clueless and in over his head he was with dealing with the bears, and that he had more arrogance and self righteousness than real knowledge of nature.



* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: One of the pilots who assisted the team in the aftermath of the tragedy gives one posthumously to Treadwell, as his treatment of the bears and failure to see them for wild animals was the cause of his death.

It chronicles the life and death of bear enthusiast, wildlife activist, and aspiring documentarian Timothy Treadwell. Treadwell, a self-taught bear researcher, spent thirteen summers of his life on Alaska's Kodiak Island, in close proximity to grizzly bears. Treadwell's habit of living amongst grizzly bears without taking any safety precautions bemused both professional bear researchers and Alaskan locals, but also made him a minor celebrity. Things ended horribly, however, when Treadwell's last trip among the bears ended with him and his girlfriend Amie Huegengard being eaten.

*** This was at least partially justified. Jewel Palovak, who was executive producer of the film, said in a subreddit in 2014 that Amie's family did not want to be in the spotlight in the wake of the attack, and out of respect for her family and memory, Amie is not focused in the film.

** There is also a short clip from ''The Late Show'' where DavidLetterman interviewed him and jokingly asked if [[FunnyAneurysmMoment Tim would eventually get eaten by a bear.]] (This clip is only in the theatrical version as copyright issues caused it to be replaced with another interview segment for the video and television versions.)
