I stumbled over California Typewriter, and then I was captured. It is a wonderful view of a disappearing culture. In this beautiful documentary, I saw an unfathomable love for these odd writing machines that let us sit down and write about our dreams, feelings, and thoughts. You will meet pretty interesting people who collect typewriters, including Tom Hanks.
I was also expecting it to be an examination of the machine. However, it was more like examining our current world and the good and bad that comes from the digital/computer revolution. California Typewriter focuses on a particular segment of society but manages to say much about American culture.
