The idea that people remember events in wildly different ways isn't original. "Rashomon" long ago became a generic term for "same story, different memory," not just the title of a 1950 Akira Kurosawa film. But prism-like narratives that rely on different points of view are suddenly flourishing on screen. "Him" and "Her," two of the three films comprising "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby," offer his and hers perspective on a marriage.
In creating “Mr. Turner,” his lush, intimate view of the last 25 years of the painter J.M.W. Turner’s life, writer-director Mike Leigh knew what he did not want to do. He was uninterested in making a cradle-to-grave biopic. “Apart from anything else, you’d have to find a small fat boy who looked like Timothy Spall and who could draw, which is a tedious proposition,” he said. Mr. Spall has been accumulating best-actor awards and...
Kathryn Bigelow was the first woman to win the best director Oscar for her film The Hurt Locker, which took an unflinching look at a bomb disposal unit in Iraq. Her subsequent film Zero Dark Thirty prompted a congressional investigation in the US because of charges that it endorsed torture. And now comes Detroit, about a police massacre of African-Americans in a motel during the city’s riots of 1967. Many critics have praised Detroit, but it’s not been without controversy.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
