You Know My Name

I still think it’s one of the better Bond openings, both in terms of the song fitting the tone/style of the film, and that it succeeds visually without the usual crutch of implied (or actual) nudity. Sadly, subsequent Bond movies have gone backward in this regard.

I’d like to think that we’re progressing, as a society, and that we’ve gotten past using empty titillation. Even if it’s intended “ironically”. But sometimes, one of the tragic aspects of a sad piece of news is that some things haven’t gotten any better.

Yet.
