The first trailer has arrived for Unauthorized: The Harvey Weinstein Project, which will be released in theaters on October 7. Click on the video player below for your first look at this new documentary, which explores the life of prolific movie producer Harvey Weinstein.
Unauthorized: The Harvey Weinstein Project is as much an examination of the last 25 years of the history of independent cinema as it is a story about Weinstein himself. Without Hollywood's "Last Bully", there would be no Pulp Fiction, no one would have known about that English patient, Rob Marshall would still be a chorus boy and Quentin Tarantino would be recommending Bruce Lee's greatest hits in some video store. Like a Hollywood rags to riches story with enough twists and turns that threaten to turn the riches back into rags, Harvey began his career in one of the most unglamorous places in the world, Buffalo. His rise from an improbable concert promoter along with eventual Rolling Stones Tsar Michael Cohl, to what some call the saviour of modern film has been nothing short of spectacular and controversial.
