When this thread was first started I was interesting in seeing the movie. I was checking out the TV listings last night and saw that this was on Discovery. Since I found out about it when it was on, I set the VCR to tape it early this morning and watched it this afternoon. I've been thinking about it ever since.

Right now I'm not quite sure how I view Timothy. He seemed to get caught up in a fantasy world where he was becoming one with the bears and reality didn't play a part. But, in the end, he died surrounded by the environment in which he loved and I'm sure he thought we was doing everything right. If the bears didn't kill him, I think at some point reality would.
I still get shivers everytime I think of that movie.
Kass summed up exactly what I've been feeling/thinking about it. I can't stop thinking about it, and how disturbing yet amazing it was. Thank you for starting this thread MA, I probably wouldn't have even watched it had I not heard about it from you and the others here. You piqued my curiosity and I'm glad I had the opportunity to watch it.
