After five years of false starts, Hollywood finally got around last year to making a movie about a small detachment of U.S. Special Forces who entered Afghanistan a month after 9/11 to help capture the Taliban stronghold of Mazar-i-Sharif. It’s called 12 Strong and is based on Doug Stanton’s book The Horse Soldiers, the nickname of the Army’s Fifth Special Forces unit, which rode on horseback with Afghan Northern Alliance fighters to win a strategically important early battle.
Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread is a cockeyed love story that starts as weirdly as it ends. A famous and famously meticulous fashion designer named Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) is flirting with a young woman named Alma (Vicky Krieps). He does so by talking about how much of his art is an expression of an enduring love for his dear, departed mother. To the young woman, I would say: Run like hell. The last person in the movies who talked about his mother in such a way was Norman Bates.
Daniel Day Lewis is a genius of an actor, but a poor salesman. After completing Phantom Thread for director Paul Thomas Anderson, he announced that during the production he was overcome with “an overwhelming sense of sadness,” that he spent the last day weeping in Anderson’s arms, and he subsequently announced his intention to retire.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
