Have I Told You How Much I Freaking Love Documentaries?...

Usually I wait until after I see documentaries before I talk about them, but this looks too good to pass up. Gary Hustwit has made a documentary about the Helvetica font (sorry, GKL. I meant typeface), the most prevalent font (typeface) in use today. How the fuck do you make an entire movie about a font (typeface)!? I, for one, am intrigued.

I have high hopes for this one. I'll tell you more after I see it.

For God's sakes, man, call it a font family. I almost got a hockey stick in the ribs from GKL for using "font".

This film is on my Netflix list. It's not at the top, but it's on there.
