In the nineties, producer Lawrence Bender was closely linked with Quentin Tarantino and Miramax. In addition to producing most of Tarantino’s movies, Bender also oversaw Miramax’s Oscar-winning hit, Good Will Hunting. While Bender remains active as a producer, his movie career has cooled off since his heyday in the 90’s. He parted ways with Tarantino following Inglourious Basterds in 2009 and has been pulled into recent controversies surrounding his past partnerships. At the time of this profile in the March 1998 issue of Movieline magazine, Bender was still on top of the world.
