  • Emrys's rating of the film The Happy Film

    I’m very familiar with Stefan Sagmeister's work. His work is wonderful, but I’ve now seen so much of it, and it's so sensationalist and ego-centric, that I was expecting to be annoyed by this movie. Even the movie trailer annoyed me a bit. But I found the film delightful and personally interesting! It’s more of a movie about dating (like a Woody Allen film) than a movie about graphic design.
