70 years of history in four minutes

I watched the movie "The Kingdom" the other day, and while the movie was average, the opening sequence was one of the most captivating I've ever seen.

As a vehicle for information and setting up the backstory of the movie, the sequence, just over three minutes long, was stellar. The compelling and educational montage combined text, music, still photos, and film and audio clips to tell the story of the relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia since 1932.

You can really nerd out on the titles by reading this interview with the main title designers.
