German director Werner Herzog (Aguirre: The Wrath of God) has created something unique and unforgettable. His film is a document of the life of Timothy Treadwell, who lived for fourteen summers among the grizzly bears of Alaska until one of the creatures clawed him to death in 2003. Using remarkably vivid homemade movies that Treadwell, a struggling Aussie actor, made of himself with the bears, along with interviews of those who knew him, Herzog conducts his own expedition into knowing the unknowable — the true task of any filmmaker. Herzog makes it an art.

    “Vicious”

    Lou Reed | 1972

    Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
