Helvetica (the document---and well, the type also) is so great! Certain people featured in the document talk about the type so passionately!

Yes! Great films... You should check out Objectified. It's a new film by the Helvetica team. Looks awesome.

I loved Son of Ranbow. It was so silly, and those little boys are adorable.

I agree the boys in Son of Rambow are adorable. I really enjoyed it.

I saw Helvetica on PBS, if not in the graphic arts most people don't even notice typeface.
Search out an old (60's) copy of Look or Life mag and see the difference. Or better yet any 'New Yorker' from the 30's or 40's.
