Something to make typogratrons squeal: a movie about a font!

"Helvetica" has started to hit theaters nationwide.

The film's website says it's "a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and
global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface
(which will celebrate its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger
conversation about the way type affects our lives."

Interviewees include Paula Scher, Jonathan Hoefler, Lars Müller, and
many others.
