This is the anniversary I’ve been most excited to write about. Once again, I was 19 when Face/Off came out, so I have now lived more life with Face/Off in the world than before it, and my life is better for it. At the time, Face/Off was the most perfect expression of John Woo’s Hong Kong sensibilities in a Hollywood movie. Woo made movies about sworn enemies coming together or brothers torn apart, but Hollywood really only wanted his action sequences.
Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs the World) had a celebrity guest for the press screening of Baby Driver. Joel Coen was spotted in the theater the night before roundtable interviews with Wright and the Baby Driver cast. Wright would explain Coen’s presence as well as the ins and outs of making a musical car chase film during our interview. Ansel Elgort plays Baby, a getaway driver for Doc (Kevin Spacey). Baby coordinates his driving to songs he plays on his iPod.
Baby Driver’s world of colorful criminals is cast with an equally colorful list of A-list actors. Ansel Elgort plays Baby, the musical prodigy getaway driver who plans his escapes based on the timing of his favorite songs. He meets Debora (Lily James) and hopes to get away with her, but he’s saddled with some unwilling accomplices: Jon Hamm as Buddy, Eiza Gonzalez as Darling, and Jamie Foxx as Bats. That’s not even including Kevin Spacey as the mastermind, Doc.
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".
