Typeface has been praised by Boston's film critics ahead of a five-screening run this week at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, which starts Friday 7th and ends on the 14th (get tickets and information).
In the Boston Globe, Sebastian Smee hailed the film's "slow-paced charm" in his preview of the MFA's Art on Film series. In a review in the same newspaper titled "Stop the presses for a loving look at a history of type," Wesley Morris goes even further, describing the film's portrayal of letterpress printing in the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum as "infectious. You want to stop by Two Rivers."
Writing in The Boston Phoenix, Peter Keough was similarly smitten, stating: "Typeface touches on notions about globalization and the nature of authenticity, turning a seemingly quaint subject into a meditation on the pressing issues of the day." Read more.
Don't forget, you can help bring Typeface to your town by requesting a screening. The film is also available on DVD.
