An original vision, a creature-feature storyline, and an underdogs-against-the-empire theme blend to create film rapture. A resonant portrait of the jejune optimism, pained reality, and experiential insight of first love. Sterling performances and an unsolipsistic viewpoint enhance this fresh take on a coming-of-age story. A casual riff on some faces and places becomes a thoughtful meditation on the past and future of France.
Dense with captivating ideas and visual feats, Downsizing is a packed offering whose oversized ambitions may outstrip its accomplishments. Story elements blend science fiction, comedy, and drama to create tones and a trajectory that wobble in different directions but also keep viewers from easily predicting in what direction the narrative will turn next.
In early September at the Toronto International Film Festival, I sat down with Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Trier to talk about his new film Thelma, which had its world premiere during the festival. Later that month, his self-described "existential, supernatural horror film" would take its first U.S. bow at Austin's Fantastic Fest. Trier was quick to express to me his regrets about not being able to travel to Texas with his film, despite being "thrilled to have been invited."
@zagbagtx It's because I think the film is so worth seeing due to McDormand's fantastic character and performance, but that McDonagh's script and direction are overblown and shapeless. Too many pundits overlook the forest for the towering.McDormand tree. Plus, it's 3.5 on a 5.0 scale.

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".
