Gilliam Grim About Miramax's Grimm Promotion

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."
