[…] large black credits block out portions of the image. Created by designer Tibor Kalman’s studio M & Co., the credits feature subtly inconsistent kerning and placement. The heavy jet-black letters and thick white border lend the sequence a distinct gravity, pulling attention from the action of the scene with a formal unease. The slight imbalance in the letter spacing has an almost subliminal effect, introducing something barely there, something just below the surface.
These heavyset, outlined, all caps credits superimposed over a woodland scene seem to recall those of the wildly popular series Twin Peaks [see also the post on Fonts In Use], also featuring an FBI investigator, which debuted on television the year prior.
