Director Terry Gilliam has accused the Weinstein brothers of abandoning his
2005 movie The Brothers Grimm because, he said, Miramax was paralyzed in
its final days under the Weinsteins' leadership. Speaking at the Rotterdam Film
Festival, Gilliam charged that the Weinsteins "seemed to be trapped in their
own exit. They walked away with a lot in their pockets, but [many] films were
abandoned. That's disgraceful. I hope Bob and Harvey are spending their pocket
money happily." Today's (Tuesday) New York Post, which reported
Gilliam's remarks, observed that critics by and large panned the film,
including the Post's own critic. To which Gilliam responded: "All I can
say is, we made some noise. The film is at $103 million at the moment, so we're
not a flop. It just didn't do what it should have done. In almost every country
in the world where the Weinsteins or Disney aren't involved, it opened at
number one. That is the irony."
