Somehow I’m still on my documentary kick. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I now enjoy NPR and other “grown up” things. Or maybe I am just sick of the garbage Hollywood is producing for mainstream movies.
Either way, last night I watched “Helvetica”. That’s right. Instead of partying til morning, I was curled up watching a movie about fonts.
California has changed me.
Plot: Helvetica–Some people love it. Some people hate it. It is everywhere.
My final thoughts: While we have the ability to make feature length films about fonts, maybe we shouldn’t. Maybe fonts shouldn’t ever be talked about. Maybe I need to do more drugs.
(my apologies to all of the type designers who might be reading this post)
p.s. Any other great documentaries I need to check out? What have you seen?
