The best thing about Chris Smith’s documentary “Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond—Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton,” which is streaming on Netflix, is that it serves as a reminder of Andy Kaufman’s singular genius. His was a genius that has yet to be assimilated by comedy or television or, for that matter, by movies, least of all by Milos Forman’s 1999 bio-pic about Kaufman, “Man on the Moon,” which stars Jim Carrey and is the subject of Smith’s documentary.
Each week, Richard Brody picks a classic film, a modern film, an independent film, a foreign film, and a documentary for online viewing. As an actor, Greta Gerwig started as a great writer, and vice versa—she improvised scintillatingly original dialogue in her earliest skein of movies.
When I interviewed Spike Lee in 2014 , in his Fort Greene studio, his first words to me as we shook hands were, “When was the last time you were in Brooklyn?” (I had been to BAM about a month earlier.) Lee is a filmmaker of place; his movies have ranged wide, from Chicago to Italy, but he keeps coming back to Brooklyn, and his ten-part adaptation of his 1986 breakthrough feature, “She’s Gotta Have It,” which drops on Netflix tomorrow, is a story of place.
When great directors do self-remakes, they're exploring big ideas and themselves, and so it is with Spike Lee and his ten-episode transformation of She's Gotta Have It, dropping tomorrow on @netflixhttps://t.co/E5kGUuiOA8
@carolineavenue@mattprigge Meet Pamela, in Day for Night; the untitled film-within-a-film in L'Enfant Secret; Fritz Lang's Odyssey, in Contempt; whatever Eddie Constantine's acting in, in Beware of a Holy Whore...
@vrizov@mimbale Hollywood has not aged well. Any dream of "going back" is wrong and doomed; the idea was deluded from the start. Wes Anderson is by far the most original; with his movies about young people, a young generation of viewers has grown up with his style and ideas.
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".
