Art of the Title is willing to bet Oliver Stone had one hell of a shot list for the opening credit sequence that features a nicely delineated aesthetic for every episodic bend of this very long drive. The gradual matting of Sean Penn’s hair tells the story. A scratch type “crossroads crucifix” is added to the director credit. Drugs and vultures follow. Exacting inserts detail the small truths of time and place.
