We know from these opening credits, that we're going to see the darker underbelly of Tinseltown.
Makeup is sometimes listed in the opening credits if the movie relies on makeup for special effects or advanced aging of a lead character. It can be a challenge to determine “importance” in opening film credits order. This example is a grittier and more immersive take on opening credits; the end result de-glamorizes what we think of Hollywood. Think Planet of the Apes , Benjamin Button or even Forrest Gump . For example, a choreographer might get an opening credit in a dance film with lots of musical numbers, or a supervising animator in an animated film. In some cases, a particular credit might be considered more important because of the type of film.
