Skyfall titles evoke a retro aesthetic

by Critical Commons Manager

Daniel Kleinman's titles for Skyfall evoke multiple cliches of James Bond movies and their traditionally baroque title sequences including good old fashioned Orientalism, suggestively naked women's bodies abstracted into graphic forms and seemingly low-tech kaleidoscopic mirror effects. Is there anything in this title sequence to suggest that these apparently anachronistic gestures are ironically self-aware or is it just that sex, death, violence and digital effects never get old?
