So you went back to San Francisco, where you had been living before you moved to Europe, as the French delegate! Yeah. I went there the same year as Agnes Varda. And the French, they knew what they were doing, also. Why? Because they knew it was going to be embarrassing that the only black filmmaker, was from France. It’s interesting. My experience is that the US film world is much more geared towards money or status, while the French are more supportive of the Idea.
Yonic symbolism in the films of David CronenbergNot since Busby Berkelely’s undulating tunnels of bare legs and Judy Chicago’s labia dinner plates has there been an artist as yonic-centric as David Cronenberg. But what exactly does that term mean? To clarify that yonic is the opposite of phallic is a start, but does it refer to the inside or the outside? The vulva, the slit, the bleeding wound, or (according to Freud’s castration complex theories) the lack?
The actress Bridey Elliot ( Fort Tilden, Silicon Valley ) has found the perfect role for her dry, dark but goofy sensibility in her directorial debut, Clara’s Ghost , which recently premiered at Sundance . The movie is a love letter to her family, and features her sister Abby Elliott (Saturday Night Live ), cult comedian father Chris Elliot ( Cabin Boy, Get a Life ) and especially her mother, a brilliant actress with few credits.
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".
