Michael Rozek's rating of the film Pressing On: The Letterpress Film

Not without flaws of convention, it must be watched to its end to be seen: not as a film about letterpress printing (although it is that, most relentlessly), but one about time, history, humanity, and love. Thought-provoking, life-affirming--in the deepest senses of both words. An essential film--not because of its form (though it builds admirably to its climax), but by what it says, which is so rarely said.
