I’m kicking off a series highlighting some of TV’s more interesting opening credit sequences from the viewpoint of a visual editor.  Today’s pick: The Wire, season 4.

 

There’s lots to like in this montage.  Plenty of juxtaposition, matching camera moves, and themes that run throughout.  I particularly like the “wheel” sequence near the end.
