George Kuchar’s Hold Me While I’m Naked.
Every Woody Allen film since Annie Hall. Always simple and classy.
I Spit on Your Grave
To Kill a Mockingbird
Hard Boiled, great to see Chow Yun Fat on the clarinet….
Dead Pigeon on Beethoven Street
How to Draw a Bunny
Sam Peckinpah – The Getaway- I love this opening, its so mechanical and suffocating you can really feel the characters frustration.
all Saul Bass(seems to be apopular with everyone) that i’ve seen, North by Northwest is my favorite so far.
North by Northwest
A lot of the other ones I like are because of the music played with them. like Signs. But those dont really count do they?
Vertigo and Goldfinger are in the top of my list…
Reservoir dogs’ is badass…
always like the title seq to good bad & the ugly
The Marriage of Maria Braun
Contempt, where Godard reads the credits over a shot of Coutard tracking on his dolly
Written on the Wind
I don’t know that it really counts but the introduction of the cast and all that from the beginning of The Royal Tenenbaums.
Spielberg’s CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
NORTH BY NORTHWEST
CASINO ROYALE (1967)
Godard’s TOUT VA BIEN (where he writes checks to the cast and crew)
Pierrot Le Fou
Last Year at Marienbad
*The one in Stanley Donen’s “CHARADE” (this is my most fave title sequence).
*Saul Bass’ title sequence in “WEST SIDE STORY” and his works for Hitchcock.
*The one in Polanksi’s “CHINATOWN” – I love the music too!
*Daniel Kleinman’s work for “GOLDENEYE”.
*A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS
The animated credits go hand and hand with the music in “A Fistful of Dollars”.
under the volcano
Black Belt Jones
DEATH AT A FUNERAL
The sung credits for Pasolini’s Hawks and Sparrows.
I thought the title sequence in Lost Highway wasn’t bad
As far as a newer film goes, I think the Dreamers had a good title sequence.. and of course for a classic, what better than Star Wars?
Hitchcock’s PSYCHO sticks out in my mind.
beyond that, i’d have to say NAKED GUN: From the Files of Police Squad, because its also the funniest title sequence i’ve seen.
M*A*S*H* is good too, thanks in no small part to the music and how it immediately goes from somber war film to deadpan comedy.
Good Will Hunting and Psycho are pretty good.
The Holy Mountain
INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM!
Art of the Title recently featured the opening to Michael Arias’ “Tekkonkinkreet” -
