The narration’s boastful tone towards the end of this trailer for Barry Avrich ‘s Unauthorized: The Harvey Weinstein Project has me concerned. There’s a great documentary to be made about Weinstein, whom I’ve always seen as a scrappy East Coast mogul in the tradition of The Bad and the Beautiful‘s Jonathan Shields (as played by Kirk Douglas). A little voice is telling me that Avrich’s film, which opened online yesterday via Sundancenow, might not be it.
Has anyone seen it? I’ll try to catch it sometime this weekend.
