I hadn't realised just how scrumptious that title sequence is. Wonderful.
One of the all-time great opening sequences, and notably for Scorsese, a director well-known for his strong use of music, one of his best musical sequences.
I remember watching that opening sequence in the cinema when it was first released & I was hypnotised by it.
Lush. agreed, superb opening sequence.
@Bukowski—what an awesome post! Mr Scorsese is one of those few directors who are capable of producing a blockbuster that is entertaining while actually making audience think. And there’s always a great deal of meticulousness with those more audio-visually tuned in mind as well… Thank you, Paul.
perfectly set the tone for the masterpiece.
no-one puts music and images together with as much finesse as Scorsese does
Hard to think of a better opening sequence to a film
Had to come back for a second bite :)
And THIS is why everyone should follow you, PAul. For the sheer eclectic brilliance of the jams...
