Fashion designer Vivienne Westwood proves a spiky and evasive presence in this entertaining docu-portrait. The prospect of creating a feature-length tribute to a wild, larger-than-life personality is always enticing. Yet while filmmakers will never want for drama or salacious stories, there is always the threat that such a figure won’t be contained by a mere documentary. This is especially true if that famous face has opinions on how they should be portrayed as the hero of their own story.
There is no other word for it: Jones Mekas is a legend. And he’s a legend who operates in many different circles. He’s one of the world’s great experimental filmmakers, with works such as the sublime Walden (Diaries, Notes, and Sketches) and Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania as part of a vaunted filmography. He was also a noted film critic, lending his redoubtable penmanship and fervent cinephilia to the pages of the Village Voice.
Barbara Hammer has been an active/activated presence in American cinema for half a century. Long considered a groundbreaker among the avant-garde for her ability to collapse and reconstruct concepts of human sexual experience through an organically queer gaze, Hammer’s film work is the subject of a five-piece programme at the 55th New York Film Festival.
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".
