Film Critic Carrie Rickey Talks About Weinstein, #MeToo And Movies

“Naturally, as a woman and a mother, I am not for sexual predation of women in any industry. That kind of goes without saying. Before Nora Ephron died, she made a list of the things she wouldn’t miss. I think number one or two on that list of things I won’t miss are more panels about why there aren’t enough women in film. That’s kind of how I’m feeling now. We talk about it, and we talk about it, and nothing fucking changes. You can quote me on that.” – The Smart Set

Study Shows Ohio Economies Not Seeing Impact of Drilling Boom

A new study shows that the drilling boom in south east Ohio is not contributing as much as it could to the local economy. One of the authors, Amanda Weinstein of the University of Akron, says part of this loss is because many of the workers in those drilling areas are spending their earnings elsewhere. “Because of this leakage, what it suggests we need to make sure that we’re not ignoring these counties, thinking these counties are just fine on their own," she said. "We need to make sure these c...

How The Weinstein Company’s Bankruptcy Continues To Hurt Native Women

The deal was to take the Weinstein company name off, and donate future from, the film Wind River to the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center. “For the center, which is run out of a woodstove-heated bungalow in snow-swept Lame Deer, Mont., this was a potentially huge boon. The nonprofit addresses violence against Native American women, runs a national helpline for domestic violence survivors, and provides assistance to tribes and tribal programs across the country.” Now, they’re likely to...

'Wind River' and Harvey Weinstein's broken promise to Native women and children in Indian Country

Elizabeth Olsen and Graham Greene star in Wind River. THE PLAN was that every time a person watched 'Wind River,' a portion of royalties from the movie would go to The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, which works to “enhance the safety of Native women and their children.” But NIWRC says it never got any of the promised funds, and may never get a dime. “So what went wrong?,” writes Elena Saavedra Buckley at High Country News. “Harvey Weinstein.” Great story, awful story.

Why the Weinstein Company Bankruptcy Hurt Native Women

#MeToo Is A Story For Women To Tell, Not Guys Like David Mamet

Mamet’s upcoming play Bitter Wheat centers on a very Harvey Weinstein-like studio head, and Steven Berkoff is preparing a one-man show about Weinstein himself. Lyn Gardner is not having it: “Because women own this story. Not a couple of middle-aged playwrights whose recent hits have been sparse, and who are fascinated by male ‘monsters’ and want to give them more stage time. They have had quite enough.” — The Stage

‘Untouchable’ Review: Harvey Weinstein’s Accusers Speak Out Against the Disgraced Mogul [Sundance]

My first thought about Untouchable, the new documentary about Hollywood mega-producer and sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, was that it didn’t bring anything new to the table. But that’s not entirely true – the film reiterates every detail you already know from the key reports that have been published about him, but the true power of this movie (and for me, the only reason it should exist at all) comes in its interviews with Weinstein’s victims, and the stories from these women are just as hear...

ICANN has responded to a request for it to reduce the $25,000 annual fee it charges gTLD registries. The answer is no. From a report: That wholly unsurprising reply came in a letter from registry services director Russ Weinstein to John McCabe, CEO of failing new gTLD operator Who's Who Registry. McCabe, in November, had asked ICANN to reduce its fees for TLDs, such as its own .whoswho, that have zero levels of abuse. ICANN fees are the "single biggest item" in the company's budget, he said.

Sundance, where Weinstein was king, airs film chronicling his fall

For more than 20 years, Harvey Weinstein reigned supreme as rainmaker at the Sundance Film Festival, spending millions of dollars to buy up the best in independent cinema. "Untouchable," directed by Ursula Macfarlane, makes no claim to offer shocking new revelations. Rather, it attempts to retrace, as rigorously and scrupulously as possible, both the talent and the decadence of one of the most powerful men in Hollywood -- a man who now awaits trial on charges of rape and sexual aggression.
