To paraphrase the D.H. Lawrence quote that begins Hostiles, something deep within the American soul enables us to kill effortlessly without pause. Having spent decades eradicating Cheyenne peoples in the territory of New Mexico, U.S. Army Captain Joseph Blocker (Christian Bale) stands as the embodiment of this observation. Having committed countless acts of atrocity in the name of god and country, he’s become callused to the human consequences of murder.
Visually precise and gracefully paced, Phantom Thread has all the makings of a gentle melodrama with perfect posture. But don’t let its elegance fool you. Paul Thomas Anderson’s dense portrait of warped love likes to spit venom. It depicts 1950s London as a façade of post-war strength where class and prestige are the only important outward markers of success. Internally, its characters are far knottier beasts of burden, ripe with contradictory impulses and desires that cannot be easily classified.
Ultranationalist right wing groups like Britain First believe that immigration will wreak economic and social havoc on the lives of U.K. citizens. Paddington, the animated Peruvian bear of Michael Bond’s famous novels and Paul King’s lovely 2015 film, confronts such close-minded opinions by proving a little charming chaos can bring kindness back into fashion.
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".
