A blazing sun rises over the sierra of the American West—or is it an industrial lamp shining across the rib cage of an android skeleton? In Westworld‘s unsettling opening credits, it’s hard to tell. And that’s the point.
The show, about a Western theme park populated with humanlike robots, unnerves as much as it excites. The main title sequence welcomes you to a world in which things feel very much out of place.
