Miramax Has Died; Let’s Celebrate Their Fine Films

by

Reports say that Disney has shuttered the long-running Miramax, where the Weinstein brothers used to green-light art films that actually made money and changed lives.

Let’s ignore their occasional clunkers and too-blatant Oscar grubbers and focus instead on the many winners du cinema they spawned through the years.

Which ones touched you the most?

Sex, Lies, and Videotape?

My Left Foot?

The Piano?

Pulp Fiction?

The English Patient?

The Crying Game?

The Talented Mr. Ripley?

Shakespeare in Love?

Chicago?

Kill Bill?

Can you believe these all came from the same studio? Why didn’t I appreciate them more when they were here?
