Gattaca title sequence by Michael Riley

A monotone colour palette – a subtle integration of sans-serf and serif capitals falling in and out of focus – a microscopic viewpoint of trimmed pieces of fingernail falling to the surface followed by hair follicles – sprinkled skin flakes reminding us of snow – then finally a mournful symphonic interlude courtesy of Michael Nyman all add up to what is considered a close-to-perfect title sequence for the extraordinary film Gattaca.
