Unauthorized: The Harvey Weinstein Project from Barry Avrich is, as the title implies, an unauthorized documentary on movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein wasn’t interviewed for the documentary and didn’t want the movie to be made. Avrich did it anyway. He explores Harvey’s rise from Buffalo, New York as a concert promoter to independent film producer. If you didn’t know here are couple of Weinstein highlights: he gave Tarantino his shot with Pulp Fiction, produced The English Patient, and helped discover Rob Marshall.
Look for the documentary in theaters on October 7th, 2011.
