He’s best known as co founder of Miramax Films. In a survey assessing the addresses of Academy Award Winners over an interval of 20 years, it had been decided that seven Oscar winners thanked God in their acceptance speeches, while 30 Oscar winners thanked Harvey Weinstein.
While lauded for opening up the independent film market and making it financially feasible, Weinstein continues to be criticized by some for the techniques he’s supposedly used in his business transactions. When Weinstein was charged with managing the US release of Princess Mononoke, he demanded, while meeting with director Hayao Miyazaki, the picture be edited. In response, an unnamed Studio Ghibli producer sent him an genuine katana using an easy message: “No cuts.” Weinstein has consistently insisted that such editing was done in the interest of making the most fiscally feasible movie. “I am not cutting for pleasure”, Harvey Weinstein said in a interview. “I am cutting for the material to work. All my life I served one master: the movie. I really like films.” Another example mentioned by Biskind was Phillip Noyce’s The Quiet American, whose launch Weinstein delayed following the September 11 strikes, because of crowd reaction in test screenings to the movie ‘s critical tone towards America’s previous foreign policy. After being told the movie would go straight-to-video, Noyce intended to screen the movie in Toronto International Film Festival as a way to marshal critics to demand Miramax to release it theatrically. Weinstein chose to screen the movie in the Festival just after he was lobbied by star Michael Caine, who threatened to boycott promotion for another movie he’d made for Miramax. Weinstein’s attempts to campaign for Oscars for his pictures during Oscar season resulted in a prohibition on such campaigns by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Weinstein has also cultivated a reputation for ruthlessness and fits of rage. According to Biskind, Weinstein once set a New York Observer reporter in a headlock while throwing him out of a celebration. On another occasion, Weinstein excoriated director Julie Taymor and her husband in a discrepancy over a test screening of her film Frida.
