 Harvey Weinstein - Biography - Moviefone
Miramax was purchased by Disney for 80 million dollars in 1993, and the Weinstein brothers remained with the company to release such hits as Muriel's Wedding and Il Postino (both 1994), the latter of which garnered several Oscar nominations.
Of course, not all of the films that Miramax released were hits, but the brothers' willingness to take risks and place their trust entirely in the hands of filmmakers resulted in such critically lauded art-house hits as Smoke (1995), The English Patient (1996), and Good Will Hunting (1997).
The Weinsteins' relationship with such filmmakers as Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, Gus Van Sant, Kevin Smith, and Steven Soderbergh worked wonders for their indie credit and ensured good films for years to come.

Before the festival began, Esquire contributing editor Kim Masters met with Scorsese and Harvey Weinstein in the first joint interview the two men have given on the state of their rumor-plagued and long-delayed picture.
The impatient Weinstein, a hulking presence who brings to mind a boy in detention, leans back in an armchair as Scorsese, small and animated, sits down beside him to discuss what is by far the riskiest and most expensive film that he, or Weinstein, has ever made.
But what is driving Weinstein visibly crazy this afternoon is the idea that anyone would mock his struggles as he supported the making of this film or that he has done anything to Scorsese that would merit such mocking.

Weinstein aggressively courted legendary director Martin Scorsese by helping him pursue a long-planned project, "Gangs of New York" (2002), the story of the New York immigrant riots of the late 19th century.
Weinstein also found himself wrangling his studio's relationship with its golden boy Quentin Tarantino—who had been in some way involved with 10 Miramax productions—over his latest opus.
The rift over the Moore film appeared to be the beginning of the end of the relationship between Disney and the Weinsteins: the former appeared tired of defending Miramax's risky film output to its conservative, family-friendly investors, while the brothers clearly resented any interference from their corporate parent.

This gossipy chronicle is highly critical of other pivotal players in independent movies, including Sundance Film Festival founder Robert Redford and Bob Weinstein, Harvey's mercurial brother and partner (see BW Online 2/10/04, "Where Indie Films Are Alive and Well").
Harvey has admitted that he gets carried away because he's so "passionate" about movies.
Less well-known players, more vulnerable to Harvey's whims, speak of being driven to ulcers, near nervous breakdowns, and the brink of financial ruin by seeing their films delayed or released with virtually no publicity.
