Helvetica, The Movie

Great documentary! I left buzzing with the many threads and points of view shown in this film, plus it had an awesome soundtrack. It was interesting to be part of a geeked out, nearly full movie theatre of folks loving the fonts and laughing knowingly at references to "Arial, even worse than Helvetica" (Erik Spiekerman, who was hilarious in a dry teutonic way.)

Here is a clip, but it is worth seeing this film in a movie theatre.
