Harvey Weinstein Career

In the late 1970s, using profits from their concert promotion business, Weinstein and his brother founded the independent film distribution company Miramax, named after their parents Miriam and Max. The company's initial releases were primarily music-oriented concert films such as Paul McCartney's Rockshow.

In the early 1980s, Miramax acquired the rights to two British films of benefit shows filmed for the human rights organization Amnesty International. Working closely with Martin Lewis, the producer of the original films, the Weinstein brothers edited the two films into one movie tailored for the American market. The resulting film was released as The Secret Policeman's Other Ball in May 1982, and it became Miramax's first hit. The movie raised considerable sums of money for Amnesty International and was credited by Amnesty with having helped to raise its profile in the United States. The Weinsteins slowly built upon this success throughout the 1980s with arthouse films which achieved critical attention and modest commercial success.

Harvey Weinstein and Miramax gained wider attention in 1988 with the release of Errol Morris' documentary The Thin Blue Line, which detailed the struggle of Randall Dale Adams, a wrongfully convicted inmate sentenced to death row. The publicity that soon surrounded the case resulted in Adams' release and nationwide publicity for Miramax. In 1989, their successful launch release of Steven Soderbergh's Sex, Lies, and Videotape propelled Miramax to become the most successful independent studio in America.

In 1989, Miramax also released two arthouse films, Peter Greenaway's The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover and director Pedro Almodóvar's film Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!, both of which the MPAA rating board gave an X-rating, effectively stopping nationwide release for these films. Weinstein sued the MPAA over the rating system. His lawsuit was later thrown out, but the MPAA introduced the NC-17 rating two months later.

Miramax continued to grow its library of films and directors until, in 1993, after the success of The Crying Game, Disney offered the Weinsteins $80 million for ownership of Miramax. The brothers agreed to the deal which in turn cemented their Hollywood clout and also ensured that they would remain at the head of their company. The following year, Miramax released its first blockbuster, Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, and distributed the popular independent film Clerks.

Miramax won its first Academy Award for Best Picture in 1997 with the victory of The English Patient. Pulp Fiction was nominated in 1995 but lost to Forrest Gump. This started a string of critical successes that included Good Will Hunting (1997) and Shakespeare in Love (1998), with both films receiving several awards, including numerous Academy Awards.

The Weinstein brothers left Miramax on September 30, 2005, to form their own production company, The Weinstein Company, with several other media executives, directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, and Colin Vaines, who had successfully run the production department at Miramax for ten years. In February 2011, filmmaker Michael Moore took legal action against the Weinstein brothers, claiming they owed him $2.7 million in profits for his documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004), which he said were denied to him by "Hollywood accounting tricks." In February 2012, Moore dropped the lawsuit for an undisclosed settlement.

An analysis of Academy Award acceptance speeches from 1966 to 2016 found that Weinstein had been thanked or praised in 34 speeches—as many times as God, and second only to Steven Spielberg (with 43 mentions).

On October 8, 2017, Harvey Weinstein was fired from The Weinstein Company after a list of sexual abuse charges was released to the press. After months of unsuccessful attempts to sell the company or its library, The Weinstein Company filed for bankruptcy, with Lantern Entertainment subsequently purchasing all assets in 2018. The company was shut down on July 16, 2018, and its website sometime thereafter.


New York attorney files bizarre lawsuit accusing Ben Affleck and Matt Damon of stalking and bugging her home to use her experiences in their work - and claims films like Maid in Manhattan and Gone Girl mirror her life

www.dailymail.co.uk, November 23, 2023
Court documents obtained by DailyMail.com accuse Affleck and Damon of not only bugging the woman's home but also hacking her devices, leaving her in fear she would be raped or kidnapped. The lawsuit claims that her identity and personal experiences were used to develop SNL skits at the time Affleck was dating a producer Lindsay Shookus, and as well as in films produced by Harvey Weinstein. She claims not to know when she became an 'unwitting participant' in their simulation, according to the suit filed in New York Supreme Court on Thursday, under the Adult Survivors Act.

Diddy's rap sheet of utter depravity: Car bomb claims, a champagne-bottle bludgeoning - and now the reported 'mutilation' of his girlfriend... MAUREEN CALLAHAN reveals Sean Combs' monstrous past and asks: How long can he get away with it?

www.dailymail.co.uk, November 21, 2023
That's it? Sean Combs just walks? If we're to believe the allegations lodged in civil court last week by his former protégée Cassie, hip-hop mogul Combs - also known as Puffy, Diddy and, laughably, Love - is one very dangerous man. And in the wake of this filing - which Combs, through his lawyer, said was a shakedown - we're reminded that other prominent figures have said yes, they believe Sean Combs may be capable of violence. New York prosecutors: Are you listening? Cassie, née Casandra Ventura, filed her civil suit on November 16. One day later, a financial settlement was reached. If even half of what Ventura alleges here is true, there's a good chance other victims exist. And if there's a faster payout in recent memory, I can't come up with one. This is dark stuff. It recalls the monsters we now know: R. Kelly, Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein. And remember, all three have been convicted. Only Cosby is free, on a technicality. The Cassie-Puffy origin story, as relayed here, feels familiar. Ventura met Combs when she was 19 and he was 37; she was an aspiring star and he was a hip-hop mogul. Months later, in February 2006, he had signed her to his record label and began to infiltrate every aspect of her life.
