It’s incredibly rare when a main-title sequence simultaneously (a) uses a very cool pop song, (b) is stylistically sharp and creative, (c) introduces the characters, (d) tells you a little bit about who the lead character is, and (e) manages to be smart and entertaining with exactly the right attitude (i.e., one that agrees with and expresses the milieu and spiritual world of the characters).

When’s the last time any film managed to do all these things in a single credit sequence? I’m not saying it hasn’t happened in the last ten or twenty years. I’m saying it’s not coming to me.
