Grizzly Man

Please don’t feed the bears! Werner Herzog’s gripping docudrama centers on amateur carnivore expert Timothy Treadwell and his girlfriend, Amie Huguenard, whose passion for and dedication to grizzly bears is demonstrated in the Alaska wilderness.  (2005, 103 min., Dir. Werner Herzog)

Incident at Loch Ness

Director Werner Herzog sets out to the Scottish Highlands to make a documentary exploring the myth of the Loch Ness Monster. Meanwhile, another documentary film crew is making a film about Herzog. Shooting on a rented boat, tensions begin to rise as Herzog and his producer, Zak Penn, find themselves at cross-purposes on the black surface of Loch Ness. Things get edgier and more absurd as mysterious shapes begin to rise from the murky water. (2004, 94 min., Dir. Zak Penn)
