I choose to pick 2006’s Children of Men directed by Alfonson Cuaron because I feel it does exactly what an opening scene should do, give me a lite piece of the film, capture me and want me to keep watching. And I just love when they shoot the opening scene and the titles for the film pops up!
Children of Men takes place in the year 2027 in a world where nobody can have children, the movie starts with everyone tuning into the news as they find out Diego Ricard, the youngest person on the planet at 18 was killed the previous night. Diego, being a celebrity because of his age has the world in shock, and that’s where I will leave it, just so I don’t spoil the movie! The cinematography and color palette gives the film a sense of eerie-future that is believable! Doesn’t that opening just want to make you watch the whole thing?! I highly recommend this movie if you haven’t seen it, do yourself favor and please watch it!
