Good but could have been deeper
8 October 2018 | by ggknutsenSee all my reviews

Not bad. Great insight into writing and how the typewriter has influenced certain artists. Uses a store in Hollywood which is still repairing and selling typewriters as the main story-line. But, felt the doc was missing something. Needed to get a little deeper.
