“I think when you have won everything and are a living legend, the idea of losing is frightening because you are going to be dethroned and you are basically going to have to be at ease with a new identity,” says Janus Metz, director of Borg McEnroe, which is set during the 1980 Wimbledon Championships, when Swede Bjorn Borg was aiming to become the first man at the All England Lawn Tennis Club to claim five men’s titles in a row.
Mahdi Fleifel has spent the days leading up to the Dubai International Film Festival premiere of his latest short, A Drowning Man, teaching students at the New York Film Academy in Abu Dhabi. “Scandar Copti and Kamal Aljafari, the Palestinian filmmakers, they kind of hijacked me because they knew I was coming to the Dubai for the festival,” Fleifel says. “They said why not come to the UAE a couple of days before and talk to our students.
“I guess this film is about white men in power that are beyond reproach,” says Lynne Ramsay of her adaptation of Jonathan Ames’ 90-page pulp novella You Were Never Really Here. Joaquin Phoenix stars as Joe, a hitman hired to rescue kidnapped Nina (Ekaterina Samsonov) the young daughter of a New York senator. Since the film debuted in an unfinished cut at Cannes, the industry has been rocked by multiple abuse scandals and with each sordid revelation Ramsay’s thriller seems ever more prophetic.
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".
