Opening title sequence from "The Shining"
The IFC website has an article this week hyperbolically entitled "The 50 Greatest Opening Title Sequences of All Time." Any listing like that obviously has to be totally subjective, and I disagree with many of the inclusions, but browsing it did give me a chance to see again some of my favorites, including the one embedded above, which I've never blogged, but always loved because of the scenery, the ominous soundtrack, and the car (I used to have a yellow VW Beetle identical to that one).
For a more in-depth discussion of opening title sequences, go to The Art of the Title Sequence, which I reviewed about two years ago.
