This is the opening sequence of 'Watchmen' that was made available by the company who made it. It's absolutely breathtaking, and Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'" fits perfectly well. This is possibly one of the best opening credits, filling you up on a lot of the backstory without any tedious dialogue or giving them precious screentime in what is already a lengthy film. It also tells Rorschach's background story in a more economic way than in the comic book.
There's a lot of historical references to famous events and famous photographs. See if you can spot them from the photos here.
This photo even has it's own wiki. Both the lovers were never identified.
I'm sure there are a lot more references than I mentioned or noticed. Again, for my review of the film, read my previous post.
Over and out
Now playing: Bob Dylan - The Times They Are A-Changin'
