Dystopian Typography

We managed to see V For Vendetta this past weekend: great movie! (The "from the creators of the Matrix trilogy" tagline had me a little worried going in, since that's not exactly an indicator of quality.)

Type-geek observation on the film: poor residents of plausible-future fascist Britain — apparently prohibited by law from using any typeface other than Gill Sans! (I'll imagine that Johnston Sans might also be permissible in a pinch without bringing down the wrath of the jackbooted thugs.)
