French Kiss

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, has been on my “movies to see” list, since its release in late 2005. This post is not intended to review the movie, although I will say, Robert Downey Jr. has one fantastic scene, in which he avoids arrest by pretending to be an actor. Also of note, the Val Kilmer in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, could eat the Val Kilmer from Tombstone and The Doors, and still have room for dessert...just an observation.

Anyway, the film title sequence was fantastic, and arguably the best part of the movie. That’s not to imply that the film was a disappointment, only that the intro was impressive and completely unexpected. Danny Yount, a director for Kyle Cooper’s Prologue Films, created the title sequence. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, has the graphic sensibility of a Saul Bass title, but is undoubtedly contemporary. For me, it’s the most memorable title since Catch Me If You Can (2002).
