In January 2019, Ursula Macfarlane’s documentary ‘Untouchable’ was screened at the Sundance Festival with high expectations, although the reason is less beautiful. While the film production company Miramax – with Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob at the helm – was previously responsible for winning entries, Harvey himself is now in a completely different light. In 2017, the first shocking stories surfaced about alleged intimidation, assault, threats and rapes against Weinstein. His employees and actresses decided to stop talking, which became the worldwide #MeToo movement thanks to journalist Ronan Farrow of the New York Times.

Harvey was at the top for nearly a quarter of a century. He has produced blockbusters such as ‘Shakespeare in Love’, ‘Pulp Fiction’ and ‘Good Will Hunting’. His fame and wealth reached far and many an actress was only too happy to work with Miramax and later the Weinstein Company. The fact that these collaborations turned out to have a high price came painfully to light in 2017.

Narcissistic abuse of power, intimidation, transgressive sexual and terrorizing behavior is the denominator in all stories. The then 22-year-old was summoned to give Harvey a misguided massage and Angelina Jolie and Uma Thurman also have no pleasant memories of their discussions with him. In some cases, she says, there were also rapes against actresses including Paz de la Huerta, Rose McGowan and .

Harvey is a man of stature, also in a literal sense. His slender victims, whom he wanted to ‘talk to’ in his hotel room, were no match for the sex-hungry businessman. They were trained to be cornered. Do you ever want to work in Hollywood as an actress again? Then you are willing to do this, right? ‘. In the documentary ‘Untouchable’ we hear, among other things, the story of the Canadian Erika Rosenbaum. She had been promised a great acting career in exchange for sex. And not once, but three times she was intimidated by Harvey. Erika did not agree with his misconduct and she only now deserves – very poignantly – her moment in the spotlight with the general public thanks to ‘Untouchable’. This is just one example from the numerous stories of duped actresses and colleagues of Weinstein. These allegations have taken a heavy toll; his wife Georgina has left him, he has been fired from the Weinstein Company, Harvey has been disbarred from several prestigious film guilds and he is an absolute persona non grata worldwide.

The whole affair gets even darker when Harvey Weinstein feels wet and enlists renowned Black Cube detectives (ex-Mossad agents) to cover his tracks and spy on victims and malicious journalists. The detectives do a perfect job; no incriminating evidence can be found on the internet. But the saying goes here too: no matter how quick the lie, the truth will catch up with it.

’Untouchable’ unilaterally tells the stories of women and men who have fallen prey to a large arsenal of Harvey Weinstein’s misconduct. But what the documentary misses because of this is the adversarial process. No attention has been paid to an with, for example, Harvey’s lawyers or objective psychologists who can provide insight into the thinking of a man like Harvey. This could have been a welcome addition, given the global scale of the Me Too movement.

Harvey was arrested in 2018 on charges including multiple rape and sexual harassment charges. He has now been released on $ 1 million bail, wears an ankle bracelet, is not allowed to leave the states of New York and Connecticut, but above all insists on being innocent. Given that the lawsuit will not be served until September 2019 and Weinstein has not yet been sentenced to an appropriate sentence, it may be somewhat easy not to highlight the events from multiple perspectives.
