Reviews
New York Times "[F]ascinating....The film's provocative, lively interviews with graphic designers and theorists...assess Helvetica's impact on human life and thought." 09/12/2007 p.E6
Entertainment Weekly "[Viewers] are in for an exclamation point of joy from such a well-designed doc." -- Grade: A- 09/28/2007 p.87
Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "The critical chronology of post-War typography is slickly done....It's the insight into the politicization of print that proves most fascinating." 11/01/2007 p.62
Sight and Sound "[W]hat's lovely about Gary Hustwit's documentary is that it not only gets across the passions, absurd and detailed, that shape this world but also sketches a timeline in changing technologies and fashions over a half-century." 03/01/2008 p.69
