V is for...

Vienna? no, Vendetta! a bit off topic, but just saw the move and thought it was fab. I'm not as much the font spotter in the theater as is our friend Mark Simonson, but i did notice gill sans in a couple places -- how very british of them! anyhoo, just thought i'd creat a space for typophiles to vent about Vendeta. (extra points for individuals who can recreate the lovely alliteration using the most instances of the letter v!) ;^P

Viva la Vendetta--A veritable visual vanguard of vane villains vacant of veiled voluminous verbal vicissitudes by verbose voyeurs of vandalism (while vast visages of venom-spewing vipers attack a vat of vociferous virile vagrants). Down with the vice-ridden vile vermin; Victory to the vanquished!

Vendetta? I love that font!

I must confess, Natalie Portman never fails to disappoint. I'll catch this on dvd. maybe.

Hoy Vey! Vapid must have been vaporized in the vast volumes of velour vehemently vexing my veritably vicious vit.
Vot ever :-)

Vell, not to be vindictive but I must aver that the predominant typeface in the movie is not Gill, but is verily the vaunted P22 Underground or ITC Johnston. The face is used in all the government signage and propaganda, and a light weight (which argues for the ITC) is even used in some of the government documents shown in closeup. It vexes me somewhat that my favorite type has been approprated as fascist symbol. An earlier thread posited Priori as a nice sinister alternative to Johnston. The film designers' only effort to make Johnston more threatening was to display it only in black and white or occasionly red.
