A few movies about design I have watched recently. "Eames :The Architect and the Painter" was very eye opening, a much broader look at their work then I have seen before. Both "Objectified" and "Helvetica" are by Gary Hustwit, who also has a movie "Urbanized" that I haven't seen yet. "Objectified" is interesting for its interviews but only really scratches the surface of a very interesting topic. "Helvetica" is allowed to delve a bit deeper and also has some priceless interviews. Who knew that Graphic designers could have nonsensical conversations about "neutrality" or "purity" just like architects! Both of the Hustwit movies are available for instant view on Netflix.
