California Typewriter ★★★½

Spent my Sunday afternoon watching a documentary about typewriters because I’m a cool guy.

In all seriousness, this was pretty good in terms of selling the analogue beauty of a piece of machinery that, from an efficiency standpoint, has been outpaced by word processors. And yet there’s still beauty and purpose in a typewriter, and the documentary is at its best when it shows how modern technology uplifts the typewriter community rather than positioning typewriters in an adversarial relationship with the future.
