Wouldn't be special if it wasn't a Bond Film
18 July 2007
Excerpt: The major appeal of the Bond Franchise has always been master villains and Pussy Galore -- but never real spy stuff. Industry hype, however, promised a newer, grittier Bond with Daniel Craig. The opening sequence, (how Bond became a 00 agent), aimed to set this tone. Shot in black and white with a film-noir atmosphere, this scene features a visual motif of transparent surfaces contrasted with dark pools, suggesting a world of intrigue and false appearances.
