Miramax, the home of films ranging from "Jackie Brown" to "Shakespeare in Love," has been sold by Disney to an investment group with no immediate plans to do anything but exploit the company's library. Maybe it's time to give the brand its due. Even in its heyday (perhaps especially in its heyday), when it was run by its co-founders, Harvey and Bob Weinstein, serious critics in America's top art house cities -- like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco -- loved to complain about Miramax. They accused Harvey and his brother Bob of buying up all the promising art and independent movies and then releasing them piecemeal and sometimes not at all. They criticized Harvey Weinstein, in particular, for fiddling with movies in post-production, for ruthless strategies in awards season, and for demanding never-ending loyalty from many of the talented men and women who first made their name in Miramax releases.
