The more we allow our digital contraptions to take hold of our lives, the more its seems people yearn for the good ol’ analog days. This affectionate documentary embraces the siren call of the manual typewriter and those who have always preferred to use them instead of computers, as well as those who collect them, repair them, and make art with them.
American Assassin aims to be the first film in a new action franchise based on the popular Vince Flynn novels about Mitch Rapp, the clandestine CIA superagent who is known to be the worst nightmare of terrorists everywhere. The book series is beloved by ex-presidents and frequent fliers alike. However, this introductory film is pure SOP. The film is something of a prequel that tracks how Mitch Rapp (O’Brien, formerly of the Maze Runner series and TV’s Teen Wolf) became a big-time terrorism fighter.
The annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF): a celebration of films from around the world, a place for the discovery of new talent and reconnection with established masters, a market for film buyers, and a bellwether for the upcoming awards season. For a working film critic, the festival is something of a busman's holiday. Not only does one engage in the same activity undertaken every day throughout the working year, the 10-day festival allows the critic to do so with extreme gluttony.
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".
