Unauthorized: The Harvey Weinstein Project (2011)

Don’t really have much to say about this documentary.  Directed by Barry Avrich, it tells the story of Miramax co-founder Harvey Weinstein and his meteoric rise in the movie industry.  It doesn’t go into too much depth, just painting Harvey’s character with broad strokes, while also highlighting how much of a Midas touch he seemed to have.  Unquestionably, Harvey changed not just the independent movie industry, but the entire movie industry.  Some may argue for the better, some for the worse.  He basically made an industry out of currying Oscar nominations, and the doc was interesting, though not particularly eye-opening.
