If talking about mental illness is difficult, try living with it. In John Green’s Turtles All the Way Down, sixteen-year-old Aza Holmes struggles to separate her budding sense of identity from her OCD and anxiety. When Russell Pickett, the billionaire father of a former childhood friend, disappears amid a criminal investigation of his financial dealings, Aza and her best friend Daisy set out on a mission to find him and win the hefty reward. Easier said than done.
Movies about domineering artists ask a relevant question: how much abuse will you take for the sake of the art? The fact that the art on display in Phantom Thread is dressmaking is only a vehicle for the film’s themes. Like a sports movie, the sport itself isn’t the point. The story of the athlete, or artist, is universal. Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) is a renowned dressmaker with a rigid, orderly process.
And now it’s time, dear readers, if I may,To bring you a film from back in the day. Back when we were tiny and our souls were not black yetCan you guess which film I’m talking about yet? Think of a classic, one that’s stood the test of time…Ah, shit, I already wrote it in the headline. So, yes, let’s remember about this Grinch who is green,Who hates Christmas and presents and who’s just plain mean.
Indie film is having one hell of a year. A24 had several surprise hits this year and I think they are taking the indie world by storm. Neon isn’t far behind and has released some great films as well. Go indie film! #IndieFilm
#Paddington2 is fantastic. A rare sequel that is even better than the original. Charming, adorable and incredibly heartwarming. The perfect family film and one that is a must-see for all ages. Paddington the Bear is back and better than ever. @paddingtonbear@PaddingtonMovie
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".
