Review: Helvetica

I saw Helvetica last night. I thought the documentary would be about the typeface (font), and it's history and application. Instead, the documentary focused more on a general discussion of 20th century graphic design. It was neither enjoyable nor particularly informative.

If you are at all interested in typography or font design, I recommend The Road to Clarity a New York Times Magazine article by Joshua Yaffa from 2007. Be sure to check out the associated photogallery.
