True Detective Title Sequence

Buzz about True Detective season 2 is starting to pick up, so I thought it would be appropriate to comment on the opening title sequence from season 1.  Lasting roughly a minute and a half, this title sequence is easily one of the most symbolic and beautiful openings to any television show I have ever seen.  It does a tremendous job of incorporating different elements of the show, including incredible shots of the setting in Louisiana, as well as foreshadowing the main characters as broken and cynical people.  The design is truly a work of art that incorporates this hazy and transparent like feel that really adds a nice touch.  As far as the music goes, I think it complements the artistic design wonderfully and adds a nice depth to the overall feel.
