Title Sequence – Deus Ex: Human Revolution

If you ever wondered what the slick disgusting beauty of Chris Cunningham’s All is Full of Love video, mixed with the jaring cuts of grime from a David Fincher opening would look like, I think the Human Revolution title sequence comes close to offering it.  These videos have been studied, cut, and flattered through imitation (as they should be) so many times that it’s a given they’re a part of this generation’s artistic development.

It was after seeing the video that I began to become attached to Human Revolution.  It’s the best kind of heavy-handed: the melding of man and machine, the struggle of an entire world, encapsulated in Adam as he writhes on the operation table.  The person that comes out is cool and collected, but he has to become an abomination and go through hell to get there.
