IndieWire's 50 Best Opening Credits Sequences of All Time

Indiewire's list description: James Bond is back on the big screen this week with Sam Mendes' "Spectre" (read our review here), and along with the return of Daniel Craig, spectacular action and casual sexism, that means we get a lavish credits sequence. An immaculately designed opening, usually paired with a specially scored theme song, has been a staple of the Bond franchise since the early days, and continues with the octopus-tastic take in the new film.
But Bond doesn't have a monopoly on inventive, thrilling credits sequences —all kinds of filmmakers have introduced their films in stunning, ingenious ways. And so we've used the occasion of "Spectre" to pick out our fifty favorite opening credits of all time. Take a look below and let us know your own favorites in the comments.
