This documentary is a sobering, restrained, and astutely-constructed recounting of allegations against Harvey Weinstein, starting with charges made long before he even got into the movie business. Allegations are presented clearly as they have been in numerous news stories and in the indictment that led to his arrest. What feels strongest in Untouchable are interviews with men and women who worked with him for years. One man feels guilty that he didn't leave Weinstein sooner. One woman learned of an attack against a young woman and wrote a memo about it (it would later be leaked to the press) and then resigned. A niggling criticism is that interviewee identifications are made only once and for faces unfamiliar to the public, the viewer can find it difficult to recall the significance of some talking heads when they reappear in the story.

There's optimism here in that exposing Weinstein may someday result in punishment equal to his alleged misdeeds, and that the aftermath of his story, the Bill Cosby conviction, as well as allegations against Louis CK and others, is now part of a national conversation that spawned the #MeToo movement. But realists point out that abuse continues in Hollywood, in Silicon Valley, in government, in health care, in car dealerships, advertising agencies, and just about anywhere that people work together in boss-underling situations, and that, for the foreseeable future, we can expect powerful people to continue to try to get away with it.
