Even though Alexander Payne's "The Descendants" is set in Hawaii, we get to see only one hula dancer—a little plastic doll, swinging her plastic-skirted hips atop the dashboard of a white Jeep. Everyone else is caught up in a dance of life that moves to its own mysterious rhythms. George Clooney is Matt King, a husband and befuddled father with fateful decisions to make about family, mortality and real estate; he gives a perfect performance in a production filled with superb ones.
Part documentary and part drama, Wormwood is a multilayered account of Eric Olson, a man who's devoted decades of his life to unraveling the mysterious death of his father, a U.S. Army scientist. Yet, Wormwood also typifies the sort of intricate, discursive storytelling favored by a new generation that doesn't always want to sit in a dark theater for a fixed amount of time.

Telluride, Colo. Long before binge-watching became fashionable for fans of TV series, the Telluride Film Festival was providing high-quality binges, at high altitude in the Rocky Mountains, for devotees of big-screen feature films, documentaries and various, often daring, experiments in the rich history of world cinema. The festival stayed true to its calling this time around; many of the features and shorts that showed in 10 venues...
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".
