It's time to dust off a forgotten series. It's been a while since we've done a Credits Report, but after being reminded of one of my favorite sequences the other night, I figured it was high time to revisit the theme.
One of the most powerful ways to introduce an audience to the characters and world of a film is through the opening sequence. It can allow for more artistry than might be present through the rest of the feature. It can play who's who, and most importantly, set the tone for the story to come. For the most part, we seem to be drawn to the epic sequences, the ones that are stunning, exciting, and jaw-dropping, but often, the best are the most simple, the ones that make the most of the credits opportunity and do it without any bling.
It was that way for Harold and Maude, and the same can be said for today's pick, The Safety of Objects.
